Resumen

MARTINEZ-BAZ, I.; DELFRADE, I.  y  ETXEBERRIA, J.. Characteristics and statistical methods used in original articles published in Public Health journals in Spain. Anales Sis San Navarra [online]. 2018, vol.41, n.3, pp.347-354.  Epub 22-Mayo-2019. ISSN 1137-6627.  http://dx.doi.org/10.23938/assn.0382.

Background

To describe the characteristics and statistical methods used in the original articles published in Gaceta Sanitaria, Revista Española de Salud Pública y Anales del Sistema Sanitario de Navarra, the Spanish public health journals in Spain indexed in the 2016 JRC.

Methods

All articles published in these journals in 2007, 2012 and 2017 were reviewed. For each article, general aspects (year, journal, language, area) and statistical characteristics (design, purpose, method and software) were recorded.

Results

A total of 310 articles were reviewed, 73% of them were cross-sectional studies. Evaluation and health services (24%) and chronic diseases were the most frequent areas. During the 2007-2017 period there was an increase in both the number of works written in English (4 vs 20%, p<0.001) and by women as the main (46 vs 62%, p=0.028) or senior authors (27 vs 36%, p=0.029). Significant changes concerning type of analysis were not detected (p=0.933).

Conclusions

The characteristics and statistical me-thods used in scientific publications have not been modified in recent years. However, publications written in English have increased and women are playing a more relevant role in authorship.
