Sharing Clinical Trial Data: Your Comments Needed

The International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) is seeking feedback on its proposed requirements for sharing clinical trial data: “…the ICMJE proposes to require authors to share with others the deidentified individual-patient data underlying the results presented in the article (including tables, figures, and appendices or supplementary material) no later than 6 months after publication.” Read the full proposal: Sharing Clinical Trial Data: A Proposal from the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors and submit your comments by April 18, 2016, to have your voice heard.

Note: many journals follow the Recommendations for the Conduct, Reporting, Editing and Publication of Scholarly Work in Medical Journals (ICMJE Recommendations), including New England Journal of Medicine, Circulation, and Pain.
