Selective Publication of Antidepressant Trials and Its Influence on Apparent EfficacyErick H. Turner, M.D., Annette M. Matthews, M.D., Eftihia Linardatos, B.S., Robert A. Tell, L.C.S.W., and Robert Rosenthal, Ph.D.

Selective reporting of clinical trial results may have adverse consequences for researchers, study participants, health care professionals, and patients.
