Methodologists and their methods. Do methodologists write up their conference presentations or is it just 15 minutes of fame?

Abstract

OBJECTIVES:

To assess the extent to which abstracts of methodological research, initially presented at meetings on systematic reviews, have gone on to be published as full articles.

METHODS:

Full publication was assessed in three ways: a search was carried out of The Cochrane Library; a search was conducted using MEDLINE; and a questionnaire was sent to the contact author of each abstract.

RESULTS:

Approximately half of the abstracts had not been, or were unlikely ever to be, published in full.

CONCLUSIONS:

The rate of full publication of abstracts related to the methodology of systematic reviews seems similar to that for randomized trials.
