The Federative International Committee for Scientific Publications (FICSP) of the IFAA is dedicated to the advancement of the anatomical sciences through all forms of publication. In this regard, we are pleased to announce our endorsement and support for the following two publications. We believe that both of these papers will enhance and improve the guidelines on which anatomical studies are built.

  • Development of the Anatomical Quality Assurance (AQUA) checklist: Guidelines for reporting original anatomical studies. Clin Anat. 2017 Jan;30(1):14-20. Tomaszewski KA, Henry BM, Kumar Ramakrishnan P, et al.
  • Development of the anatomical quality assessment (AQUA) tool for the quality assessment of anatomical studies included in meta-analyses and systematic reviews. Clin Anat. 2017 Jan;30(1):6-13. Henry BM, Tomaszewski KA, Ramakrishnan PK, et al.
