AMES, Iowa – Animals are the subjects of research for many reasons. Accurately reporting that research is a fundamental component of the process.
But there are a multitude of reporting guidelines researchers must follow.
A new website (https://meridian.cvm.iastate.edu) coordinated by Dr. Annette O’Connor, a faculty member in Iowa State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine, aims to assist researchers not only to navigate the guidelines but improve the quality of reporting animal research.
