Ever feel like scientific publishing is a Mario Bros video game?ÊIn publication ethics, there are suchÊhazards as conflicts of interest,Êauthorship disputes,Êand self-plagiarism. In clinical trial reporting, there areÊcomplex requirements, such as prospectiveÊregistration. Whether you are an author or a reviewer (and you may be both), thereÊoften is confusion about the important differences between case reports and research studies. Qualitative methods, meanwhile,Êcan seem like a mystery box. PTJ Editor-in-Chief Alan Jette and Editorial Board members Kathleen Gill-Body and Mari Lundberg, along withÊCommittee on Publication Ethics (COPE)ÊCouncil Member Rachel Safer, will help you navigate and get through to the next level! This multipart sessionÊwill coverÊethical issues in scientific publishing and the challenges in reportingÊand reviewingÊclinical trials, qualitative research, and case reports.
