Randomized controlled trials

Reports of randomized clinical trials should present information on all major study elements, including the protocol (study population, interventions or exposures, outcomes, and the rationale for statistical analysis), assignment of interventions (methods of randomization, concealment of allocation to treatment groups), and the method of masking (blinding).  Authors should consult and abide by the guidelines for randomized controlled trials such as the CONSORT guideline.

Systematic reviews and meta-analysis

Review articles must include a description of the methods used for selecting, extracting, and processing of data. Authors doing the review should apply the PRISMA statement for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses.

Reporting of complications

In the interest of having a uniform and standardized manner of reporting, the authors are requested to use the Clavien-Dindo Classification to report complications resulting from urological surgeries/procedures.
