Design, Implementation, Monitoring, and Sharing of Performance Standards for Laboratory Animal Use: Summary of a Workshop (2015)

This workshop examined critical issues pertaining to the concept of performance standards for laboratory animal use. The workshop brought together those who create and use the standards with those who regulate them, while speakers addressed the challenges of defining, developing, implementing, assessing and validating performance standards. In interactive sessions, participants discussed what should be considered in creating a performanc... More >>

Reproducibility Issues in Research with Animals and Animal Models: Workshop in Brief (2015)

Scientific progress is achieved by robust experiments that generate reliable and reproducible results to be used with confidence by the research community. Recent publications have drawn attention to an apparent and concerning prevalence in the number of peer-reviewed studies that cannot be reproduced, particularly those containing data from experiments using animals and animal models. At this workshop, organized by the ILAR Roundtable... More >>

Animal Research in a Global Environment: Meeting the Challenges: Proceedings of the November 2008 International Workshop (2011)

The publication of research articles involving animal studies, central to many disciplines in science and biomedicine, should include adequate and specific information to enable the interpretation, evaluation, and reproducibility of the reported study. Considerable variation in the amount of information required by scientific publications and reported by authors undermines this basic scientific need; insufficient information does not facilitat...
