Preparing a publication of a randomised trial to ensure all important details are included in the report is a very demanding task. This seminar will help you to increase your chances of preparing a first class paper – it will discuss major problems in trial reporting, identify all relevant guidelines useful for manuscript preparation and present the views of journal editors regarding the expected quality of submitted manuscripts.
