Research Finds Discrepancies Between Trial Results Reported on Clinical Trial Registry and in High-Impact Journals

Main Points:

Chicago – During a one year period, among clinical trials published in high-impact journals that reported results on a public clinical trial registry (ClinicalTrials.gov), nearly all had at least 1 discrepancy in the study group, intervention, or results reported between the 2 sources, including discrepancies in the designated primary end points for the studies, according to a study in the March 12 issue of JAMA.

Published in:

JAMA

Study Further:

The 2007 Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Amendments Act expanded requirements for ClinicalTrials.gov, mandating results reporting within 12 months of trial completion for all FDA-regulated medical products. “To our knowledge, no studies have examined reporting and accuracy of trial results information. Accordingly, we compared trial information and results reported on ClinicalTrials.gov with corresponding peer-reviewed publications,” write Jessica E. Becker, A.B., of the Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, Conn., and colleagues.

Study Examines Development of Peer Review Research in Biomedicine

Main Points:

Chicago – An analysis of research on peer review finds that studies aimed at improving methods of peer review and reporting of biomedical research are underrepresented and lack dedicated funding, according to a study in the March 12 issue of JAMA.

Published in:

JAMA

Study Further:

Mario Malicki, M.D., M.A., of the University of Split School of Medicine, Split, Croatia, and colleagues analyzed research presented at the International Congress on Peer Review and Biomedical Publication (PRC) since 1989. The first PRC was organized to “subject the editorial review process to some of the rigorous scrutiny that editors and reviewers demand of the scientists whose work they are assessing.” The researchers collected data on authorship, time to publication, declared funding sources, article availability, and citation counts in Web of Science. The analysis included 614 abstracts.

Lack of diversity means loss of talent for UK scientific workforce

Main Points:

A lack of diversity across the scientific community represents a large loss of potential talent to the UK according to the chair of the Royal Society’s Equality and Diversity Network (EDAN), Professor Edward Hinds FRS. The comment comes as the Royal Society publishes a report which gives the fullest picture yet of the scientific workforce in relation to diversity.

Study Further:

Approximately 20 per cent of people in the UK workforce need scientific knowledge and training to do their current jobs[1]A picture of the UK scientific workforce, published today (7 March), sets out to analyse and understand the composition of the scientific workforce in terms of gender, disability, ethnicity and socio-economic status and background.

Professor Edward Hinds FRS, said:

“With diversity comes a mix of ideas, skills and approaches. If the UK’s scientific workforce is not diverse, we are bound to be missing out on some great talent. At a time when the UK is seeking to use its scientific capabilities to help improve lives and rebuild the economy, it is more important than ever that we ensure the best scientists can flourish.”

Searching for structure in the Arxiv

arXivThe arXiv, an electronic preprint scientific paper repository, receives on average 7000 submissions per month. That’s a lot of papers and text to tackle, if you’re Cornell graduate student Alexander Alemi.

Alemi is analyzing text within months of arXiv aritcles with help from three other Cornell scientists, including arXiv developer Paul Ginsparg. In the past, Ginsparg has toyed with ideas for a different arXiv that never came to fruition. After clicking on an article, for example, the site would suggest related articles and authors. In a way, Alemi hopes to resurrect this idea and eventually bring it to arXiv users. Read more…
