Preparing reports for presentation and publication

Preparing reports for presentation and publication is fully discussed in Chapter 10. Here we comment on important practical matters that need to be agreed between all those conducting and collaborating in a trial.

Publication policy, the authorship of main reports, the way acknowledgements are to be made and who is to be acknowledged, should be indicated in trial protocols. Collaborators in multi-centre trials should be encouraged to quote publications arising from the trials on their CVs and to cite them as their own publications, even when they are not named authors, making their role clear.
