Wiki Version:
<blockquote> <p>Reproducibility of research can be improved by increasing transparency of the research process and products. The TOP Guidelines provide a template to enhance transparency in the science that journals publish. With minor adaptation of the text, funders can adopt these guidelines for research that they fund. The guidelines are the output of a meeting held in November 2014, organized by the <a href="http://bitss.org/" rel="nofollow">Berkeley Initiative for Transparency in the Social Sciences,</a> <a href="http://www.sciencemag.org/" rel="nofollow">SCIENCE Magazine</a>, and the <a href="http://cos.io" rel="nofollow">Center for Open Science</a>.</p> </blockquote> <p>The TOP Guidelines Committee, sponsored by the Center for Open Science, maintains an information commons for transparency standards, serves as an advisory group for journals and funders, evaluate guidelines’ effectiveness, and manages guideline updating to maximize quality and interdisciplinary applicability. Updates to standards are recorded with version number and date. Adopting journals and funders can denote the version number that they adopt to facilitate tracking and updating of standards over time. </p> <h2>Version 1.0 of the TOP Guidelines can be found in this <a href="https://osf.io/9f6gx/wiki/Guidelines/" rel="nofollow">wiki</a> or <a href="https://osf.io/ud578/" rel="nofollow">downloaded as a pdf</a>.</h2> <p><br> </p> <p>A table comparing levels across categories can be <a href="https://osf.io/2cz65/" rel="nofollow">here</a>.</p> <p>Sample implementations of the guidelines are available <a href="https://osf.io/9f6gx/wiki/Sample%20Implementations/" rel="nofollow">here</a>.</p>
