  • Published 2006 in Reproductive biomedicine online


The editor of a medical journal may influence the opinion of his readers by a 'publication bias'. This can be through the choice of an editorial at the front of the journal, tutoring the article, the choice of an author from the Editorial Board and the organization of a press conference accompanying the publication. The publicity from which certain studies benefited in recent years has had a negative effect on doctors' prescriptions and comprehension of the published studies.
