Growth rate in publication of Pediatric CAM RCT reports, 1965–1999. Note: A few journal articles published in 2000 and 2001 were indexed at the time our study. We have elected not to show them in this portrayal of the growth of the literature. The rate of publication seems to be dropping even in the final years shown here. We believe this to represent a lag between the time of publication and the time the journal articles are indexed in the bibliographic databases, rather than a true decline in the rate of publication of reports of randomized controlled trials in pediatric complementary and alternative medicine.
