    Results from OddPub: Thank you for sharing your data.

    Results from LimitationRecognizer: We detected the following sentences addressing limitations in the study:
    Limitations: Our review has limitations: we could not calculate disease incidences among study populations because military personnel participants were often transferred, granted leave, or completed training prior to study completion, so participants were lost to follow-up. Therefore, even for studies reporting incidence rates (Table S1), these were likely underreported. Additionally, incidence rates may also be skewed because authors only obtained samples for laboratory testing from very small subsets of populations in a military base or restricted participation to symptomatic subjects. Therefore, the sample size from which incidence was determined was frequently not representative of the actual phenomenon of interest, i.e., disease incidence.

    Results from TrialIdentifier: No clinical trial numbers were referenced.

    Results from Barzooka: We did not find any issues relating to the usage of bar graphs.

    Results from JetFighter: We did not find any issues relating to colormaps.

    About SciScore

    SciScore is an automated tool that is designed to assist expert reviewers by finding and presenting formulaic information scattered throughout a paper in a standard, easy to digest format. SciScore checks for the presence and correctness of RRIDs (research resource identifiers), and for rigor criteria such as sex and investigator blinding. For details on the theoretical underpinning of rigor criteria and the tools shown here, including references cited, please follow this link.
