    <subfield code="a">&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Introduction&lt;/strong&gt; There is evidence that the use of some&lt;br&gt;
reporting guidelines, such as the Consolidated Standards&lt;br&gt;
for Reporting Trials, is associated with improved&lt;br&gt;
completeness of reporting in health research. However,&lt;br&gt;
the current levels of adherence to reporting guidelines are&lt;br&gt;
suboptimal. Over the last few years, several actions aiming&lt;br&gt;
to improve compliance with reporting guidelines have been&lt;br&gt;
taken and proposed. We will conduct a scoping review of&lt;br&gt;
interventions to improve adherence to reporting guidelines&lt;br&gt;
in health research that have been evaluated or suggested,&lt;br&gt;
in order to inform future interventions.&lt;br&gt;
&lt;strong&gt;Methods and analysis&lt;/strong&gt; Our review will follow the Joanna&lt;br&gt;
Briggs Institute scoping review methods manual. We will&lt;br&gt;
search for relevant studies in MEDLINE, EMBASE and&lt;br&gt;
Cochrane Library databases. Moreover, we will carry out&lt;br&gt;
lateral searches from the reference lists of the included&lt;br&gt;
studies, as well as from the lists of articles citing the&lt;br&gt;
included ones. One reviewer will screen the full list, which&lt;br&gt;
will be randomly split into two halves and independently&lt;br&gt;
screened by the other two reviewers. Two reviewers will&lt;br&gt;
perform data extraction independently. Discrepancies&lt;br&gt;
will be solved through discussion. In addition, this search&lt;br&gt;
strategy will be supplemented by a grey literature search.&lt;br&gt;
The interventions found will be classified as assessed or&lt;br&gt;
suggested, as well as according to different criteria, in&lt;br&gt;
relation to their target (journal policies, journal editors,&lt;br&gt;
authors, reviewers, funders, ethical boards or others) or&lt;br&gt;
the research stage at which they are performed (design,&lt;br&gt;
conducting, reporting or peer review). Descriptive&lt;br&gt;
statistical analysis will be performed.&lt;br&gt;
&lt;strong&gt;Ethics and dissemination&lt;/strong&gt; A paper summarising the&lt;br&gt;
findings from this review will be published in a peer reviewed&lt;br&gt;
journal. This scoping review will contribute to a&lt;br&gt;
better understanding and a broader perspective on how&lt;br&gt;
the problem of adhering better to reporting guidelines&lt;br&gt;
has been tackled so far. This could be a major first&lt;br&gt;
step towards developing future strategies to improve&lt;br&gt;
compliance with reporting guidelines in health research.&lt;/p&gt;</subfield>
