Registration and Reporting

Registration and Reporting

Research transparency is about what research is going on and what the findings are, making that information accessible to the public and to the research community.

When planning clinical research, you should:

Register Research

Making research visible in a publicly accessible database before recruitment begins reduces duplication and protects participants from unnecessary research.

Report Results

Results should be made available in a place they can be seen and in a way that they can be understood by the public.

Inform Participants

Providing research findings to participants is an important part of good public engagement, respecting the participants and acknowledging their contribution.
