Figure 10: Item 15 on the CONSORT checklist asks for “a table showing baseline demographic and clnical characteristics for each group.” Once again, the number of groups is based on the trial design specified earlier. Users could generate their own tables in the system, upload tabular text (.dat, .csv, .tsv) or spreadsheets (e.g., .xlsx, .ods), or link to data-sharing sites. For analysis and discussion sections, the interface would also accommodate uploading figures, much as online journal submission systems already do.
