Preparation of the paper on good practice for reporting electroporation research

STSM by Justin Teissié, Emeritus

Period of mission: from 02/06/2015 to 13/06/2015

Home institution: IPBS CNRS Toulouse, France

Host institution: University of Ljubljana, Ljubljana, Slovenia

At the meeting of the COST Steering Committee in Salerno, 2012, some critical issues were raised on many contributions reporting electroporation research. It was decided to start the Preparation of a paper in which good practice for reporting electroporation research is collected, mainly to:

 1. Emphasize on good practice in experimental design,

 2. How to present modeling based on data supplied by some reference groups,

 3. Unifying terminology. 

These issues could be addressed through publishing protocols and what needs to be reported in an experimental report/paper; or by tutorials clarifying what terminology means and what should be most suitable. 

A general rule/guidance in reporting experimental data and most of all exposure conditions was completed along the STSM. This guide point out to report details to the extent that other researchers will be able to repeat, judge and evaluate the experiments and data obtained. 

This kind of reporting is also necessary for future systematic reviews and/or meta-analysis. 

Taking into account the wide field of electroporation, 2 drafts were written, one for Life Science (Basic Science oriented in connection with Health Science applications), the other for research connected with Industrial applications (Food, Biotech). Both drafs were structured in a similar way: a short easy to read set of recommendations and a long list of annexes where all relevant information are provided.

These reports should now be reviewed by experts from the COST Action TD 1104 to get a final consensus version during the World Congress in Portoroz this September.

Editors of relevant journals will then be approached for the publication of these recommendations for good practice in reporting electroporation research.
