The BMJ Requires Patient-Level Data for Publication

The BMJ is now applying its data-sharing policy to all clinical trials. According to the press release, “trials will be considered for publication only if the authors agree to make the relevant anonymized patient level data available on reasonable request.” It is the first general medical journal to implement this policy. So far, all of the journal’s authors have agreed to comply.

“Making anonymised patient level data from clinical trials available for independent scrutiny allows other researchers to replicate key analyses, reduces the possibility that studies will be unnecessarily duplicated, and maximises use of the information from trials—an important moral obligation to trial participants,” notes Elizabeth Loder, The BMJ’s acting head of research.

For more information, read the press release.
