Sex-Specific Reporting of Scientific Research: A Workshop
In response to a recommendation made in IOM's report, Women's Health Research: Progress, Pitfalls, and Promise, the Office of Research on Women's Health at the National Institutes of Health has requested the IOM to hold a one day scientific workshop to explore the benefits of and barriers to sex-specific reporting of scientific data. The workshop will address various questions on sex-specific reporting including:
- Why is there a need for sex-specific reporting of scientific results?
- What are the potential barriers and unintended consequences of sex-specific reporting of scientific results?
- Are there journals that have implemented sex-specific requirements for publishing of scientific results? What have been the challenges and benefits of such editorial policies?
- What steps would encourage or facilitate the reporting of sex-specific results?
