B - Better reporting of randomized trials in biomedical journal and conference abstracts

Hopewell S, Eisinga A, Clarke M. Better reporting of randomized trials in biomedical journal and conference abstracts. Journal of Information Science 2008;34(2):162-173
DOI: 10.1177/0165551507080415

This article provides an overview of research evidence underpinning the need for better reporting of abstracts reported in conference proceedings and abstracts of journal articles; with a particular focus in the area of health care, as there is growing concern about the reliability and quality of information published in these reports. Authors We seek to identify current initiatives aimed at improving the reporting of these reports and recommend the development of an extension of the CONSORT Statement, CONSORT for Abstracts.
