 Notification: Introducing Our CRISP Checklist Requirement

We're thrilled to introduce a groundbreaking addition to our submission process: the CRISP (Consensus Reporting Items for Studies in Primary Care) checklist! Effective 17 May 2024, we strongly recommend that all original research submissions must be accompanied by this comprehensive checklist to ensure alignment with the highest standards of scholarly excellence. The checklist aids researchers in meeting readers’ needs by including content that our primary care research community feels is important for the validity, quality, and usefulness of primary care research reports. The CRISP checklist will help authors provide a thicker description of the study setting and explain the relevance of the study findings to the primary care audience. We have reviewed the checklist with our editorial board and the recommendation was to make the checklist optional for all original research submissions. We will monitor the experience from authors, reviewers and readers during this trial period.  We're confident that this proactive approach to quality assurance will significantly elevate the calibre of research published in our journal, furthering the advancement of knowledge in our field.
