American College of Physicians to release 'How To Report Statistics in Medicine'

PHILADELPHIA -- (August 18, 2006) "How To Report Statistics in Medicine," second edition, is being published at the end of August by the American College of Physicians (ACP), the nation's largest medical-specialty society. The second edition revises and expands a popular text that has become a standard guide in the fields of medical writing, scientific publications, and evidence-based medicine.

As in the first edition, the authors -- respected medical editor/writer and scientific writing instructor Thomas A. Lang, MA, and biostatistician and statistical consultant Michelle Secic, MS -- again stress that "How To Report Statistics in Medicine," second edition, is not a text on analyzing or calculating statistics but rather a guide to interpreting and reporting them. It was written for authors, editors, and reviewers who prepare or evaluate biomedical research for publication, especially in peer-reviewed journals.

Since the publication of the first edition of "How To Report Statistics in Medicine," Lang and Secic say most, but not all, statistical reporting guidelines have remained unchanged. The need for a second edition comes from an increased understanding of how best to explain these guidelines, as well as the need to add several new topics and to update a few topics that have changed substantially since the first edition.

"How To Report Statistics in Medicine," second edition, contains elements of a style manual, a dictionary, and an encyclopedia. By providing plain-English overviews of the various topics, a glossary of easy-to-understand explanations of statistical terms and tests, and a user-friendly index, it should also be a valuable adjunct to anyone learning biostatistics and medical research in traditional academic classes.

The new edition features thoroughly revised and expanded text with eight new chapters, including two new chapters on preparing tables and figures and four new chapters for reporting and unders
