Four proposals to help improve the medical research literature

  1. Introducing publications officers for universities and research institutions
  2. Core competency training for medical editors
  3. Training authors to write articles “fit for purpose”(in other words, the report is a complete and transparent account of what the researchers did and found, thus maximising the potential usefulness of the article to a broad range of readers)
  4. Training for peer reviewers
