PubMed, the Google of scientific search, is now publishing funding information in its abstracts.

Accepted submission by Anonymous Coward at 2017-04-20 09:25:06 from the Will Publish for Food dept.

PubMed — a powerful taxpayer-funded search engine for medical study abstracts that doctors, patients, and the media rely on — just started displaying conflict of interest data up front. New information about funding sources and potential conflicts will now appear right below study abstracts, which means readers don’t have even to open a journal article to be made aware of any possible industry influence over studies.
