As an aside to Nick's sound advice, Marc may want to take a look at:  

1. Moher D, Schulz KF, Altman DG. The CONSORT statement: revised
for improving the quality of reports of parallel-group randomised
trials. Lancet. 2001;357:1191-4. [PMID: 11323066]
2. Altman DG, Schulz KF, Moher D, Egger M, Davidoff F, Elbourne D, et al.;
CONSORT GROUP (Consolidated Standards of Reporting Trials). The revised
CONSORT statement for reporting randomized trials: explanation and
elaboration. Ann Intern Med. 2001;134:663-94.

And googling on CONSORT for further articles on the same topics.

I would also recommend the folllowing textbook:

Peacock J, Kerry S. Presenting medical statistics from proposal to
publication. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2007.

I do hope this helps.

Kind Regards,

Oggetto: st: OT: how to report statistics in (medical) journals

Maybe off-topic:
I was asked to provide some tests for analyses in an article for a
medical journal. The results of theses tests (Wilcoxon; Kruskal-Wallis)
should be reported within the text in brackets. For me it is the first
time and I am not sure how to report the results best. I know that there
is a Council of Science Editors Manual, but it is not at hand here (and
not in the library).

Are there any guidelines for reporting statistics (and especially for
these tests...)?

Thanks a lot.
