The ARRIVE Guidelines

The ARRIVE (Animal Research: Reporting of In Vivo Experiments) guidelines have been developed to improve standards of reporting the results of animal experiments. 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 to improve standards of reporting the results of animal experiments. The PREPARE guidelines for planning animal research and testing provide guidelines for planning animal research from day one.

The ARRIVE guidelines consist of a 20-point checklist of information that the authors feel should be included in publications reporting animal research. The PREPARE guidelines have a similar multi-language checklist for use when planning experiments, but in addition they have comprehensive webpages with links to international resources for each topic on the checklist. A comparison between PREPARE and ARRIVE can be read here.
