Bayesian analysis reporting guidelines now listed on The EQUATOR Network

The Bayesian analysis reporting guidelines (BARG) are now listed on The EQUATOR Network.

 Equator network

"The EQUATOR (Enhancing the QUAlity and Transparency Of health Research) Network is an international initiative that seeks to improve the reliability and value of published health research literature by promoting transparent and accurate reporting and wider use of robust reporting guidelines. It is the first coordinated attempt to tackle the problems of inadequate reporting systematically and on a global scale; it advances the work done by individual groups over the last 15 years." (Quoted from this page.)

"The [EQUATOR] Library for health research reporting provides an up-to-date collection of guidelines and policy documents related to health research reporting. These are aimed mainly at authors of research articles, journal editors, peer reviewers and reporting guideline developers." (Quoted from this page.)

The Bayesian analysis reporting guidelines (BARG) are described in an open-access article at Nature Human Behaviour. The BARG provide a thorough set of points to consider when reporting Bayesian data analyses. The points are thoroughly explained, and a summary table is provided.

The BARG are listed at The EQUATOR Network here.
