B – Better reporting of randomized trials

Sally Hopewell, Anne Eisinga, Mike Clarke, Better reporting of randomized trials in biomedical journal and conference abstracts, Journal of Information Science, XX (X) 2007, pp. 1-12

Well reported research published in conference and journal abstracts is important considering that individuals often base their initial assessment of a study on the information reported in abstracts. This article refers specifically to abstracts reporting randomized trials and seek to identify current initiatives aimed at improving the reporting of these reports, like an extention of the CONSORT Statement that could be developed (CONSORT for Abstracts).
