CHAPEL HILL, N.C., Sept. 28 /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 expect to see a shift to medical groups to diminish the marketing influence, according to primary research conducted by Best Practices, LLC's Business Excellence Board (BEB).
In fact, 14 percent of pharmaceutical and biotech companies in the study do not turn to global or regional marketing representatives to develop a global publications strategy and plan. These companies, which align publications strictly with the medical group, receive strategy input from medical directors, advisor physicians and biostatisticians.
