Resumen

CATALA-LOPEZ, Ferrán et al. Endorsement of guidelines for reporting economic evaluation studies by Spanish biomedical journals. Gac Sanit [online]. 2019, vol.33, n.3, pp.255-258.  Epub 25-Nov-2019. ISSN 0213-9111.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.gaceta.2018.12.006.

Objective

To examine the endorsement of reporting guidelines for economic evaluation studies, such as the CHEERS(Consolidated Health Economic Evaluation Reporting Standards)statement, by Spanish biomedical journals.

Method

Cross-sectional analysis of the instructions to authors of Spanish biomedical journals included in the Journal Citation Reports 2017. Two authors examined and extracted the following information: mention of any reporting guideline, the CHEERS statement, the recommendations of the International Committee of Medical Journal Directors (ICMJE) and theEnhancing the QUAlity and Transparency Of health Research(EQUATOR) network.

Results

Of the 28 journals included, 23 (82.1%; 95% confidence interval [95%CI]: 63.1-93.9%) mentioned at least one reporting guideline in the instructions to authors. Only one journal mentioned the CHEERS statement for health economic evaluations. Twenty-four journals (85.7%; 95%CI: 67.3-96.0%) mentioned the ICMJE recommendations and 8 (28.6%; 95%CI: 13.2-48.7%) mentioned the EQUATOR network. The CONSORT(Consolidated Standards of Reporting Trials)statement for clinical trials was the most- mentioned reporting guideline (n=21; 75.0%; 95%CI: 55.1-89.3%).

Discussion

Most of the instructions to authors do not provide guidance on how to report economic evaluations. Journals should support compliance with reporting guidelines by authors and peer-reviewers.
