New 2019 CORE Reference Open Access Publication

Clarity and Openness in Reporting: E3-based (CORE) Reference, developed by the Budapest Working Group (BWG), a partnership of AMWA and EMWA, is a user manual designed to help medical writers navigate relevant guidelines as they create clinical study report (CSR) content. CORE Reference was one of two principal sources used by TransCelerate BioPharma Inc., an alliance of biopharma companies, in the development of its CSR Template released in November 2018. A new CORE Reference open access publication, Critical Review of the TransCelerate Template for Clinical Study Reports (CSRs) and Publication of Version 2 of the CORE Reference (Clarity and Openness in Reporting: E3-based) Terminology Table was published in August 2019 in the BIOMED CENTRAL journal, Research Integrity and Peer Review:
