Organisations and Tools

Below are some resources and tools that help to address the problem of waste in research.


The 6th World Conference on Research Integrity in Hong Kong, which is co-organized by Melbourne, will explore the application of new research findings to develop new and better solutions to address New Challenges for Research Integrity.


The Evidence-Based Research Network

The EQUATOR Network: A resource centre for good reporting of health research studies. Includes reporting guidelines for trials, observational studies, animal studies, systematic reviews, etc.


The AllTrials campaign: All trials registered, all results reported. Thousands of clinical trials have not reported their results; some have not even been registered. This campaign aims to get all trials past and present registered, and full methods and results reported.


Clinical Trials Registries: there are now many registries for trials but the key ones are NIH and WHO‘s gateways.


The NIHR Adding value framework: an approach to ensure maximum value from the National Institute of Health Research’s investment.


James Lind Alliance: brings patients, carers and clinicians together to identify and prioritise the top 10 uncertainties about the effects of treatments.
