BACKGROUND: Much of research presented at international meetings never appears in print. Underreporting of completed research is a problem that affects medical practice and is thought to be highly unethical. We estimated the publication rate of research presented by Serbian authors at two Balkan oncology meetings, and the reasons for failure to publish subsequently. METHODS: In March 2001 a questionnaire was sent to Serbian authors (n=98) whose research was presented as abstract in Abstract book of the 1st and 2nd Congress of the Balkan Union of Oncology (1996 and 1998, respectively). Authors were asked to cite the published work and, if they fail to publish, to cite the reason for doing so. RESULTS: Forty-five authors returned the questionnaire (participation rate 46%). Sixty-seven percent of respondents had published their work in extenso in scientific journals, and 33% had never submitted the manuscripts for publication. Half of the latter group explained this failure by the lack of time; the others expressed either nonmotivation or pessimism regarding the chances to publish. CONCLUSION: Two thirds of respondents, who had undergone the review process for scientific meetings, published their research in extenso in the international scientific journals. One third of respondents feel nonmotivated and do not make any attempts to publish their research in due course.
