Conflicts of interest often unreported in published research
« on: December 10, 2018, 04:18:01 pm »

There is yet another article on this topic--the New England Journal of Medicine's Journal Watch  (December 10, 2018) reporting on a New York Times article--"Conflicts of Interest Too Often Go Unreported in Published Research":
