While social innovations in health have shown promise in closing the healthcare delivery gap, especially in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs), more research is needed to evaluate, scale up, and sustain social innovations. Research checklists can standardize and improve reporting of research findings, promote transparency, and increase replicability of study results and findings. This article describes the development of a 17-item social innovation in health research checklist to assess and report social innovation projects and provides examples of good reporting. The checklist is adapted from the TIDieR checklist and will facilitate more complete and transparent reporting and increase end user engagement. Summary pointsO_LIWhile many social innovations have been developed and shown promise in closing the healthcare delivery gap, more research is needed to evaluate social innovation C_LIO_LIThe Social Innovation in Health Research Checklist, the first of its kind, is a 17-item checklist to improve reporting completeness and promote transparency in the development, implementation, and evaluation of social innovations in health C_LIO_LIThe research checklist was developed through a three-step process, including a global open call for ideas, a scoping review, and a three-round modified Delphi process C_LIO_LIUse of this research checklist will enable researchers, innovators and partners to learn more about the process and results of social innovation in health research C_LI
