Glossing over the truth: hidden clinical trial data - Altmetrics 5:AM Conference

Kirstine's bookmarks 2018-09-14

Summary:

Selective reporting of data of clinical trials in publications is well documented. Some trials are not published at all; others are published incompletely, including studies that only divulge results showing drugs in a favourable light. Large quantities of drug research is commissioned or undertaken by the very same pharmaceutical companies that manufacture them; and these companies can go to great lengths to stop clinical trial data from being made openly available in an attempt to protect their image and maximise sales.
