Abstract

SummaryThe International Committee of Medical Journal Editors has sponsored many developments in medical research reporting that have improved the quality of research. Their proposal to require a statement by researchers regarding the availability of underlying data for sharing has the potential for a significant advance in medical knowledge. The Canadian Journal of Surgery supports the initiative and will develop mechanisms to support authors in meeting this new requirement.
