PREPARE checklist

The PREPARE checklist

The PREPARE guidelines include a two-page checklist, which summarises the 15 topics in PREPARE. The checklist is available below for free downloading and use (no further permission is needed).
Please note that the checklist is only the "tip of the iceberg" of PREPARE. Each topic on the checklist has its own webpage (see left margin), with links to the latest resources.
The English-language version of the checklist is the version which is considered to be the definitive one by the authors of the PREPARE guidelines paper, if there are doubts as to the meaning of a translation.

Electronic versions
The PREPARE checklist is now also available in two electronic versions:

  • A Word file with text fields:. The boxes can be ticked when the topics have been addressed. Suitable for sharing within a research group, for example via Dropbox or Google Drive. Short address: A Turkish version is also available (credit: Sinan Kandir).
  • An online version, Mychecklist. Group members create a checklist, with a unique address which they can share with each other. Boxes that are ticked are immediately ticked on all copies of the file, so that all members can follow the work in progress. The text, however, is stored locally on the user's computer. No sensitive data is stored online, not even the user's IP address. Short address:
