• Country of study
• Academic field of publication (e.g. sociology, medicine)
• Aim of the study
• Addition research questions/objectives
• Study design characteristics:
o Methodological approach (as described by the author(s))
o Number of sites (e.g. two sites of the same setting, e.g. two general practice clinics)
o Number of institutional settings
• Participant characteristics (N, age, health status/conditions, other reported information)
• Data characteristics:
o Recording methods (audio, audio-visual)
o Size of the overall dataset (minutes; number of interactions recorded)
o Number of reported episodes (extracts)—number of episodes in the data collection/corpus pertaining to EACH finding
o Are interactions one-on-one, multiparty, or both?
o Institutional or mundane interaction or both?
o Is the practice observed in more than one group? (do patients or providers use it, or both?)
• Analysis characteristics—does the analysis:
o Examine interactional data in fine-grained detail?
o Attend to sequence (i.e. examine more than one party’s turns)?
o Examine more than topical/semantic content? (i.e. does it examine aspects of grammar, syntax, pragmatics, and/or prosody?)
o Includes examination of interactional consequences/outcomes?
o Includes deviant cases?
o Support central analytic claims by direct references to the data (e.g. quotations, extracts)? (no/occasionally/predominantly)
o Are key analytic claims supported by reference to relevant published sources? (no/occasionally/predominantly)
