    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:
    Strengths and Limitations: The key strength of this study is the use of a territory-wide, random sampling method. Together with a high response rate, we have captured a representative sample of school-aged children and adolescents in Hong Kong. Furthermore, we kept our sampling methodology consistent before and during COVID, making our data from the two periods comparable. The study has several limitations: First, this study was cross-sectional by nature and not longitudinal. Second, the sleep parameters were derived only from self-report or parent-report, without objective measures such as actigraphy. Third, our data did not capture daytime activities, limiting our interpretation of mediating factors of changes.

    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.
