In 1993, an eclectic group of trialists, methodologists and medical journal editors came together to try to improve the quality of reporting of clinical trials.

The result was the CONSORT Statement:  an evidence-based tool to help researchers, editors and readers assess the quality of the reports of trials.

The CONSORT Statement is now widely recognised as a cornerstone of research reporting.

There is good evidence that endorsing CONSORT can improve the quality of research reports. (207)
