TOP Guidelines Reporting Guideline

Transparency and Openness Promotion (TOP) Guidelines are a set eight modular transparency standards for academic journals, each with three levels of increasing stringency.

A standard statement developed for peer review in psychology.

“I request that the authors add a statement to the paper confirming whether, for all experiments, they have reported all measures, conditions, data exclusions, and how they determined their sample sizes. The authors should, of course, add any additional text to ensure the statement is accurate. This is the standard reviewer disclosure request endorsed by the Center for Open Science [see]. I include it in every review.”
