A new statement from the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors

Two years on, the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) review the results of their 2005 campaign for increased trial registration in a new editorial. The ICMJE is now urging for registration of early phase trials and opening up the debate on results reporting. The ISRCTN Register accepts all study designs including exploratory trials, in addition to randomised controlled trials. The register items also include a Publications field, allowing trialists to provide details about published protocols, published study results and CONSORT-style structured results.


World Health Organization's trial search portal bringing together a number of registers

In May 2007, the World Health Organization launched a new website bringing together existing key trial registers. The ISRCTN Register participates in this initiative. When a trial is registered with an ISRCTN ID, it becomes automatically pooled with the rest of the registers, ensuring maximum visibility to your research.


Updated Wellcome Trust's trial register

The Wellcome Trust, one of the major health research funders in the UK, has updated the details of nearly 100 trials the organisation funds both in the UK and abroad. Their resulting trial register is hosted on CCT's metaRegister.


PubMed trial papers and corresponding trial registration details

PubMed users are now able to customise their record display preferences in order to be able to go back to the original trial description at registration time. When user preferences are switched on, an ISRCTN banner at the top of all relevant articles will allow you to access in one click the original ISRCTN trial registration details. For details on how to set up your preferences on PubMed, please visit our information page.


Trials

'Trials' - call for papers for articles

Trials is an open access, open peer-reviewed, online journal that publishes articles concerned with randomised controlled trials in any discipline related to health care. The journal encompasses articles on any aspect of the design, analysis and performance of a trial, and is keen to encourage articles covering trial results, whether positive or negative, from any stage of the trial. See our information page for further details of the scope of the journal. Trials is published by BioMed Central Ltd, a sister company of Current Controlled Trials Ltd.


Current Controlled Trials

A reminder of our services

The Current Controlled Trials website allows you to search freely for trial information, to register your trial via the ISRCTN unique trial ID scheme (apply online) or to pool your existing register in the metaRegister of Controlled Trials.
In addition, trial protocol and/or trial results can be published in the Trials journal (see above) or in one of the 160+ open access journals published by Current Controlled Trial's sister company BioMed Central.
