    Thousands of medical journals indicate that they follow the ICMJE’s Recommendations for the conduct, reporting, editing, and publication of scholarly work in Medical Journals. These include criteria for authorship as well as newly announced requirements for the inclusion of data-sharing statements in manuscripts describing the results of clinical trials. This session will analyze the rationale for these requirements and how to meet them.
    Learning Objective : At the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to:
    • Describe the ICMJE requirements for manuscript authorship and for data-sharing statements
    • Explain the reasons why these requirements have been adopted
    • Apply authorship and data sharing statement requirements to plan studies and publications
