Four proposals to help improve the medical research literature

In an essay published in the past few weeks in PLOS Medicine, the authors make four proposals for improving medical publications:

  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
