It aims to improve the trustworthiness of biomedical journals, which publish the latest medical research news. Dr. David Moher, who was on hand to launch EQUATOR’s Canadian chapter, told the Ottawa Citizen newspaper that OHRI plans to train a publications officer who will check manuscripts before they’re submitted for publications.
