A randomised controlled trial of an Intervention to Improve Compliance with the ARRIVE guideline(IICARus). Manuscripts reporting in vivo animal research submitted to PLOS ONE between March and June 2015 were randomly allocated to either requested completion of an ARRIVE checklist (via email) or current standard practice. The primary outcome was the between-group differences in the proportion of manuscripts meeting all ARRIVE guideline checklist subitems.
