The present paper briefly describes a new modelling support tool (MoST) aimed at facilitating better quality assurance of the modelling process. MoST comprises a Knowledge Base with guidelines on good modelling practise for seven scientific domains. It supports multi-domain modelling and working in teams of different user types (water managers, modellers, auditors/reviewers, stakeholders and members of the public). The key functionality of MoST is to: (a) Guide to ensure that a model has been properly applied; (b) Monitor to record decisions, methods and data used in the modelling work and in this way enable transparency and reproducibility of the modelling process; (c) Report to provide suitable reports on what has been done by the various actors. MoST has been developed under the HarmoniQuA project (www.HarmoniQuA.org)
