 Professor Doug Altman, partner in the Marie Curie project `Methods in Research on Research' has sadly passed away on Sunday June 3, 2018. Doug was a passionate fighter for the quality of worldwide health research - and a friend.  He was the director of the Centre for Statistics in Medicine in Oxford,  one of the leaders of the CONSORT reporting guideline group,  and founder of the EQUATOR Network.  He provided methodological advice to the Cochrane Collaboration since 1993 and was senior statistics editor at the BMJ.  We are grateful for all he contributed and hope his example and the tools he helped develop will continue to inspire ever better  quality of health research.
