The Publication Plan: educational news for medical publication professionals

The past decade has witnessed a transformation in attitudes and practices around clinical trial registration and reporting, data transparency, and industry–physician relationships. At Aspire Scientific, we not only strive to meet the highest ethical standards via adherence to Good Publication Practice and other key guidelines, but also try to encourage best practices among the wider professional community. In this respect, we are co-founding sponsors of The Publication Plan, which is a freely accessible, central online educational news service for everyone interested in the development of medical publications.

Through its website (, LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook, The Publication Plan freely shares the latest medical publications-related news, as well as providing other valuable updates and links to additional useful resources.By co-sponsoring this free educational news service, we help to provide updates on key changes in industry guidelines and recommendations, as well as covering diverse topics essential to the evolving role of medical publications professionals.
