Abstract

The editorial aims to welcome the JPT readers to its first issue on a historical note of clinical trials in the field of Medicine and the Consolidated Standards Of Reporting Trials (CONSORT) statement's reporting guidelines. History of research and randomized controlled trials (RCTs) in physiotherapy and the continuous growth in number of RCTs in physiotherapy evidence database (PEDro) necessitates better quality in reporting clinical trials by use of CONSORT checklist and flow diagram for clinical trials. Recently, the CONSORT statement was revised in 2010 and JPT became a journal endorser of the statement in its new version. The last section of the editorial envisions the aims of Journal of Physical Therapy in improving quality of reporting trials published by mandating the use of the statement.
