    Participants were randomly assigned to the two starting bids using the randomization module in REDCap [35].

    Results from OddPub: We did not detect open data. We also did not detect open code. Researchers are encouraged to share open data when possible (see Nature blog).


    Results from LimitationRecognizer: We detected the following sentences addressing limitations in the study:
    Findings from this study should be interpreted in light of some limitations. First, since the study was conducted in only 3 predominantly urban counties, the findings may not be generalizable to all counties in Kenya or other African country settings. Future studies can increase both the sample size and counties engaged to get further details about the variation in prices and obtain a more generalizable estimate. Second, as with all other stated preference elicitation approaches, WTP estimates from a contingent valuation method (a type of a stated preference elicitation method) are prone to hypothetical bias where participants may be inclined to state a higher willingness to pay price than they would pay in reality. However, a clear description of the settings and conducting the study during the COVID-19 pandemic hopefully makes our estimates realistic. Third, the linear estimation of the demand curve may not be entirely accurate as the relationship between quantity demanded and price may not be as linear as it is often a non-linear curve with a negative slope [44]. Future studies could include more starting bids to enable better plotting of the demand curve.

    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.
