For nearly every topic one might come across when working as a statistician in drug development, one will find an article describing what it is all about, along with a reference list for when deeper knowledge is desired. Depending on the complexity of each topic, the articles vary in length but in most instances one can expect less than 15 pages, which means one quickly gets a good idea about a specific topic. ~International Society for Clinical Biostatistics
