  1. SciScore for 10.1101/2022.05.23.22275439: (What is this?)

    Please note, not all rigor criteria are appropriate for all manuscripts.

    Table 1: Rigor

    EthicsIRB: The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) institutional review board provided non-research determination approval.
    Consent: Written informed consent was obtained for all enrolled participants.
    Sex as a biological variablenot detected.
    Randomizationnot detected.
    Blindingnot detected.
    Power AnalysisSample size calculation: To evaluate the diagnostic performance of the Panbio™ Ag RDT device, we assumed a prevalence of 10% among symptomatic individuals and 5% in asymptomatic contacts of laboratory-confirmed persons based on current SARS CoV 2 local surveillance data.

    Table 2: Resources

    No key resources detected.


    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:
    Limitation: The number of persons enrolled in the two groups, symptomatic and asymptomatic, may not reflect the true prevalence in the general population as we evaluated the Ag RDT during a period of high COVID-19 prevalence.

    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.


    Results from rtransparent:

    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.
