MPIP Insights for Authors
Developed in collaboration with medical journal editors, MPIP Insights for Authors is a series of short videos to support authors and publication professionals in developing industry–sponsored research publications. MPIP Insights for Authors contains guidance and best practices for all stages of the publication process, from first draft development to navigating the peer-review system.
Viewers of the videos will find tips and suggestions for manuscript development, examples of what to do and what to avoid, and resources with more detailed information on specific topics. Each video is designed to be succinct and stand on its own, so that viewers can watch one or more in the order they find useful.

Growing advocacy for transparency and access to results of clinical trials has prompted considerable debate on the topic of open access publishing and highlighted a lack of common understanding of what open access is, why it is important, and how it works. Consistent with our goal of promoting greater transparency in industry-sponsored publications, MPIP has developed a reference site to raise awareness of open access, including its importance in meeting shared transparency goals.
Transparency and Credibility of Industry-Sponsored Clinical Trial Publications: A Survey of Journal Editors, published in CMRO, reports on benchmark research conducted to assess how medical journal editors perceived changes in transparency and credibility of industry-sponsored clinical trial publications over a 5-year period (from 2010 to 2015).
Many journals accept specialized data that are especially important when it comes to transparency. We've assembled a fairly comprehensive, searchable list that can be used to identify journals that align with your manuscript content for a variety of atypical scenarios.
Transparency Matters is a global educational platform and call to action that raises awareness of the importance of transparency in reporting the results of industry-sponsored research and its impact on credibility. As part of Transparency Matters, MPIP launched What Transparency Means to Me to broaden the conversation around transparency in medical publications, promote best practices, and engage interested parties in this important mission. This platform creates a space for those involved in reporting research results to share their perspectives on why transparency is essential to patient care, scientific understanding, and credibility, and how it can best be achieved when disclosing research results.
Medical Publishing Insights & Practices (MPIP) was founded in 2008 by members of the pharmaceutical industry and the International Society for Medical Publication Professionals (ISMPP) to elevate trust, transparency, and integrity in reporting the results of industry-sponsored research. The major goal of MPIP is to encourage more effective partnership between trial sponsors and medical journals to raise standards in medical publications and expand access to research results.
