Most people involved in the development of medical publications – and particularly those from industry – are familiar with the Good Publication Practice (GPP)-2 guidelines, which were published in 2009.
An update to these guidelines (GPP-3) has been developed and submitted to a peer reviewed journal. It is hoped that these guidelines will be published in the coming months.
At the recent annual meeting of the International Society for Publication Professionals, several of the stakeholders involved in the development of these new GPP-3 guidelines – from a variety of backgrounds (industry/publishing/agency) – were videoed to provide their thoughts on these new guidelines and how they will impact on the development of publications moving forward.

Authorship, Clinical trial registries, Journal selection, Medical writing, Open access / open source, Peer review, Plagiarism, Publication planning, Reporting guidelines, Selective publication, Transparency
