The ARRIVE Guidelines

The ARRIVE (Animal Research: Reporting of In Vivo Experiments) guidelines have been developed by the NC3Rs to improve standards of reporting and ensure that the data from animal experiments can be fully evaluated and utilised. The guidelines are primarily aimed at scientists writing up their research for publication and for those who are involved in peer review.

The ARRIVE (Animal Research: Reporting of In Vivo Experiments) guidelines have been developed by the NC3Rs to improve standards of reporting and ensure that the data from animal experiments can be fully evaluated and utilised. The guidelines are primarily aimed at scientists writing up their research for publication and for those who are involved in peer review.

Developed in consultation with the scientific community, including researchers, statisticians, journal editors, and funders, the guidelines consist of a 20-point checklist of the essential information that should be included in publications reporting animal research.
The ARRIVE guidelines are endorsed by journals, funders, universities and learned societies. Material to support ARRIVE has been developed, including a short presentation describing the ARRIVE guidelines, speaker notes to accompany the presentation, a recording of a webinar and examples for each point of the ARRIVE guidelines demonstrating how they can be used in practice to report animal research.
The PREPARE guidelines for planning animal research and testing have been developed to complement ARRIVE, by providing guidelines for planning animal research.

The ARRIVE guidelines are available in a pocket-sized format. They are available to download in Chinese (Mandarin), Italian, Portugese (Brazilian) and Spanish. Other translations are planned.
