[Purpose] To investigate the actual use of the evaluation index of the quality of report used in randomized controlled trial (RCT) papers in the field of rehabilitation and to evaluate the quality of these papers. [Subjects and Methods] MEDLINE, Medical Center Magazine, and other databases were used to search for target papers. We excluded interventions outside the field of rehabilitation. Selected target dissertations were evaluated as to whether the text stated that report quality guidelines were used, and whether the evaluation items of the guidelines were actually used. [Results] In the 374 target papers, 50 (13.3%) indicated the guidelines for the quality of the report. The compliance rates of the items with the guidelines, type of randomization and important harms/unintended effects were 22% (11/50) and 26% (13/50), respectively. [Conclusion] In RCT papers in the rehabilitation field, the results suggest the need for authors to publish papers with evaluation items that meet the guidelines.
