Transparency and reproducibility in nanobiomedicine

To aid result reproducibility in the nanobiomedicine area, several initiatives have been proposed, such as creation of curated databases or implementation of field-specific checklists. In September 2018 we published a perspective presenting a Minimum Information Reporting In Bio-nano Experimental Literature checklist (or MIRIBEL), that lists a set of parameters that, according to the authors, should be reported in order to improve reproducibility and transparency in the area. This collection gathers the thoughts we received from the community about the idea of making MIRIBEL, or a suitably amended set of guidelines, mandatory for papers in the nanobiomedicine area, and includes the original Perspective and the two most recent editorials we wrote on the topic.

Editorial

The proposal for a reporting checklist for papers published in the area of nanobiomedicine is an opportunity to rekindle a conversation that started six years ago.
