Journal Watch makes financial ties more visible
By Carey Goldberg, Globe Staff
Urato, an assistant professor and obstetrician at Tufts-New England Medical Center, complained that the piece failed to disclose prominently enough that its author had received payments from several antidepressant makers, and that it painted antidepressant use in a more positive light than warranted by current data.
Now, Urato pointed out to the Globe today, the online journal has changed the piece to display the authorís financial ties right at the bottom of the main body of the article, instead of a few clicks away.
Journal Watch is published by the Massachusetts Medical Society, which also publishes the New England Journal of Medicine.
