Automatic registration of clinical trials

On the 20th of October the HRA have announced a partnership with ISRCTN, which will enable automatic registration of clinical trials. 

Registering studies before the first participant is recruited is one of the pillars of research transparency, it reduces research waste and prevents duplication. A key commitment they make in the Make it Public strategy is to register trials on behalf of sponsors. The aim is to ease the burden on sponsors and help to make transparency easy and the norm.
