    Statistical Analyses: Data was collected using computer assisted telephone interviews with data stored in a Research Electronic Data Capture (RedCap) database.

    suggested: (REDCap, RRID:SCR_003445)
    Stata version SE 16.1 (StataCorp LLC, College Station, TX) was used to manage and analyze data.
    StataCorp
    suggested: (Stata, RRID:SCR_012763)

    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:
    This study has some limitations which should be noted. First, the sample includes the population of only one state. Therefore, findings are generalizable only within Arkansas. Even so, given similarities with the populations of other Southern states, our findings are likely more broadly indicative of COVID-19 vaccine acceptance in the South. Although non-response rates were reduced and survey results were weighted, response bias can still impact interpretations due to response patterns. Additionally, the survey was conducted just before the FDA approved the two mRNA vaccines currently available in the U.S. While the media were reporting the imminent emergency approval of the vaccines while the survey was ongoing, we were unable to assess the acceptance after formal approval of the vaccines.

    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.
