Interpretation and Implementation of Good Publication Practice

Title
Interpretation and Implementation of Good Publication Practice

Abstract
Publication of clinical trial results in medical journals helps to inform the medical community of the efficacy and safety data available for new and existing drugs. However, publications reporting industry-sponsored research often undergo intense scrutiny and criticism. To ensure that these publications are developed in an ethical and scientifically rigorous manner, it is essential for companies to follow good publication practices. We review the various available guidelines that relate to preparing and publishing clinical research results, explore interpretations of the guidelines, and suggest ways to apply the principles from these guidelines to the publication development process.
