Industry Executives Finding Value in Shift of Scientific Publications

CHAPEL HILL, N.C., Sept. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- The landscape of scientific publications strategy, planning and delivery is changing with the advent of transparency guidelines. Half of global publications groups are fully located in the marketing function, but publications leaders foresee a shift to medical groups to increase clinical presentation, according to a new report released by Best Practices, LLC.

In a benchmarking study that included such influential companies as Pfizer, GlaxoSmithKline, Lilly and Merck, it was found that 14 percent of participating pharmaceutical and biotech companies avoid using global or regional marketing representatives to develop their global publications strategy. These companies, which align publications strictly within the medical group, receive strategic input from medical directors, advisor physicians and biostatisticians.
