CONSORT statement website redesigned

The CONSORT Group are delighted to announce a redesign of the CONSORT
Statement website.
The CONSORT Statement is an evidence-based, minimum set of
recommendations for reporting randomized controlled trials. It offers a
standard way for authors to prepare reports of trial findings,
facilitating their complete and transparent reporting, and aiding their
critical appraisal and interpretation.
Thanks to the financial support of the UK National Coordinating Centre
for Research and Methodology, the new CONSORT website enhances its
capability to keep up with the growing complexity and increasing impact
of the CONSORT Statement.
Some highlights of the site:
* The definitive version of the CONSORT Statement
* The CONSORT checklist: examples and explanation of each item
* Translations of the CONSORT Statement into ten languages
* Extensions to the main CONSORT Statement for different trial designs,
interventions and data types
* Browsable bibliographies of the evidence underpinning CONSORT
* History and impact of CONSORT
* News articles on the developments of CONSORT
* A full glossary of terms
* A simple yet powerful search facility
Please circulate widely. We will be delighted to hear what you think of
the site.
