Obtaining subjects' consent to publish identifying personal information: current practices and identifying potential issues

BMC Medical Ethics 14 (1):47 (2013)

Abstract
In studies publishing identifying personal information, obtaining consent is regarded as necessary, as it is impossible to ensure complete anonymity. However, current journal practices around specific points to consider when obtaining consent, the contents of consent forms and how consent forms are managed have not yet been fully examined. This study was conducted to identify potential issues surrounding consent to publish identifying personal information
