Abbreviation:Reporting guidelines for research resources

reporting guideline

General Information
Recommended reporting guidelines for research resources frequently used in biomedical research, including antibodies, constructs, cell lines, model organisms and knockdown reagents. As an extension of these reporting guidelines, the Resource Identification Initiative was developed. The Resource Identification Initiative (#RII) is designed to help researchers sufficiently cite the key resources used to produce the scientific findings reported in the biomedical literature by using using identifiers called Research Resource IDs (RRIDs).
