Abstract

Although billions are spent each year on health research, much of this research is not reported adequately in the literature. This seriously undermines the usability of reported findings and misleads clinicians, researchers, policymakers and, ultimately, patients. The EQUATOR Network is a new international initiative that aims to improve the clarity, completeness and transparency of scientific publications by providing resources and education relating to the reporting of health research and assisting in the development, dissemination and implementation of robust reporting guidelines.
