Rigor and Transparency Index, a new metric of quality for assessing biological and medical science methods
TLDR
The Rigor and Transparency Index is built, which is the average score for analyzed papers in a particular journal, indicating that less than half of the rigor and reproducibility criteria are routinely addressed by authors, and speculate that unless they are enforced, author guidelines alone do little to improve the number of criteria addressing by authors.
Evidence-Based Practice: a survey regarding behavior, knowledge, skills, resources, opinions and perceived barriers of Brazilian physical therapists from São Paulo state
TLDR
Physical therapists from São Paulo state believe that they have knowledge and skills to use Evidence-Based Practice, and although they have favorable opinions regarding its implementation, they still encounter difficulties in implementing EBP successfully.
Impact of FUTON and NAA bias on visibility of research.
TLDR
This is the first study to show that on-line availability of medical literature may increase the impact factor and that such increase tends to be greater in FUTON journals.

TLDR
Physical therapists from São Paulo state believe that they have knowledge and skills to use Evidence-Based Practice, and although they have favorable opinions regarding its implementation, they still encounter difficulties in implementing EBP successfully.
Restrictions impeding web-based courses: a survey of publishers' variation in authorising access to high quality on-line literature
TLDR
Variations in the responses from publishers suggest that for educational purposes common policies could be agreed and unnecessary restrictions removed in the future, and the resultant bias in material towards readily available electronic resources as a result of publisher's uncooperative stance is discussed.
How much effort is needed to keep up with the literature relevant for primary care?
TLDR
The volume of medical literature potentially relevant to primary care published in a month and the time required for physicians trained in medical epidemiology to evaluate it for updating a clinical knowledge base were estimated.
