Dissertation: Increasing value in diagnostic research – publication and reporting of test accuracy studies

Last modified: November 8, 2018

Over the last few years the ethics of reporting and dissemination of study findings has been given more attention. This seems to be especially the case in the field of biomedical research. The Helsinki Declaration now states that ‘Researchers, authors, sponsors, editors and publishers all have ethical obligations with regard to the publication and dissemination of the results of research’.

For his dissertation on diagnostic research, Daniel Korevaar (University of Amsterdam) analysed the overall quality of diagnostic accuracy studies from the perspective of reporting and dissemination. Korevaar concludes that we have reason for modest optimism; although more steps should be taken in order to increase the value of diagnostic research, there is already movement within the field itself.
