چکیده:

Background: ethical conduct in human research includes approval by informed consent. Thus, obtaining informed consentis one of the most important considerations when conducting researchon human subjects. Evidence of this is often lacking in journal publications.
Methods: the authors reviewed all publications reporting research human subjects in a leading Iranian public health journal (payesh – Health Monitoe) over a period of three years (2001-2004) . Rates of reportinginformedconsent were examined.
Results: In eighty – two papers (n=82) were reviewed.Of three , 31 atricles were identified for inclusion in the study. There were 18 cross – sectional surveys, 8 case – control studies, and 3 clinical trials. Two papers on screening programs were also examined.The authors found that the obtaining informed consent was documented in 26% of these publications.
Conclusions: the results indicate that the rate of reporting informed consentis low in this journal and perhaps it is the same in other similar major medical journals. This suggests thatthere is need for clearer guidelines and a better compliance by researchers for all typesof publications both to protect participant’s interests and to maintain public trust in the research process.
