ACRO unveils survey results on decline in physician participation in clinical research Today.

We are heartened to discover therefore much interest in analysis from physicians who aren’t currently investigators. This means that that we as a business must do a more satisfactory job of reaching out and educating doctors about the countless benefits of adding a research component to their medical practices, Peddicord added. Usage of Health Care The survey also asked respondents about patients’ participation in clinical research in both the U.S. And Western Europe. Twenty-six % of U.S. Investigators cited that insufficient access to medical health insurance was a major deterrent of patient participation in clinical research while just eight % of European investigators found a lack of health insurance as a barrier to individual participation.One is that in specialized fields, authors could be best qualified to recommend suitable reviewers for the topic and manuscript involved. Another can be that it makes life easier for editors: finding appropriate peer reviewers who are prepared to review in a timely manner can be both tough and frustrating. A third reason could be that journals and publishers are increasingly multinational. During the past, the editor and editorial board of a journal understood both scientific field it covered and the people employed in it, but it’s extremely difficult to end up being sufficiently well linked when both editors and submissions come from all over the world. Having authors suggest the best reviewers may seem just like a good idea therefore.
