Moderated by: Daniel Evanko, PhD
Director of Journals Operations & Systems, AACR
Recorded: 12/7/2020

Are you concerned about your manuscript's adherence to rigor and transparency reporting standards? American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) has joined forces with SciScore, an automated tool that evaluates the materials and methods sections of a paper for adherence to several key reporting guidelines. It also looks up a large number of identifiers, making the author's job easier. In this webinar, Drs. Anita Bandkowski and Martijn Roelandse discuss and demonstrate how SciScore can support authors in ensuring that their manuscript adheres to rigor and transparency reporting standards. Find out more about its benefits to authors and how to use it.

Stay tuned for the Q&A session at the end of the recording.
