2015: an updated list of essential items for reporting diagnostic accuracy studies.
The participants were also asked whether they knew about CONSORT, STROBE, PRISMA, CAse REport (CARE), Standards for Reporting Qualitative Research (SPQR), STARD
, Standards for QUality Improvement Reporting Excellence (SQUIRE), Consolidated Health Economic Evaluation Reporting Standards (CHEERS), Standard Protocol Items: Recommendations for Interventional Trials (SPIRIT), ARRIVE, Transparent Reporting of Evaluations with Nonrandomized Designs (TREND), the Conference on Guideline Standardization (COGS), STrengthening the REporting of Genetic Association studies (STREGA), and Outbreak Reports and Intervention Studies Of Nosocomial infection (ORION), which are the most well-known and commonly used reporting guidelines, and whether they had used these guidelines.
Moreover, even when checklists, such as STARD
and QUADAS (Oliveira et al., 2001), are used, there are few SR where the MQ is considered in their conclusions (Ochodo et al., 2014).

statement for reporting studies of diagnostic accuracy: explanation and elaboration.
This cross-sectional clinical study was conducted in accordance with the Declaration of Helsinki and was approved by the Institutional Ethics Committee of the Faculty of Dentistry according to STARD
guidance for reporting diagnostic accuracy studies .
Besides specified guideline for statistical reporting, a series of guidelines were developed to enhance the quality and transparency of health research by EQUATOR network, mainly including the Consolidated Standards Of Reporting Trials (CONSORT), the Strengthening the Reporting of Observational Studies in Epidemiology (STROBE), the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-analyses (PRISMA), the Standards for Reporting of Diagnostic Accuracy (STARD
), and the Reporting of In vivo Experiments for Animal Research (ARRIVE).
Herein, we review the six most widely used guidelines for reporting medical research findings (PRISMA, CONSORT, STROBE, MOOSE, STARD
, and SPIRIT; see meaning of abbreviations below, Table 2) and investigate how well they are applied in the medical literature.
Three hundred and forty two original research articles published in PAFMJ were reviewed through systematic sampling in retrospective survey study at Army Medical College from June 2014 to January 2015 The standards of quality for different study designs were derived from the corresponding statements, such as CONSORT, STROBE, STARD
and TREND statement6,7.
