Abstract
More than 500 journals Have adopted the uniform requirements of the Interna tional Committee of Medical Journal Editors, which stipulate that authors s hould "indicate whether the procedures followed were in accordance with the ethical standards of the responsible committee on human experimentation:" One major purpose of institutional review is to ensure that informed consen t is obtained when possible. We investigated how often research publication s about child health report ethics committee approval or unformed consent.
