B – Quality of reports on RCT’s in Iranian journals

Nojomi M, Ramezani M, Ghafari-Anvar A. Quality of reports on randomized controlled trials published in Iranian journals: application of the new version of Consolidated Standards of Reporting Trials (CONSORT). Archives of Iranian Medicine 2013;16(1):20-22

The objective of the Consolidated Standards of Reporting Trials (CONSORT) criteria is to provide a guideline for authors to improve the reporting of their trails. This study evaluated clinical trial reports by national peer-reviewed Iranian journals between 2008 and 2010. Their quality needs significant improvement as the majority did not adhere to CONSORT guidelines.
