The Health Research Authority is holding its first research transparency week. This workshop will look at the importance of publishing summary results of trials
We believe that publishing summary results and data – not just of trials, but of all research – in an open, accessible and public way is a key factor in ensuring research is transparent. Publishing results in a peer-reviewed journal is not always achievable, and findings published in this way may not be accessible to the public.
Making the results of research studies public and as easy to access as possible helps builds trust and accountability, whilst ensuring participants are protected from unnecessary studies. It is also a process that helps ensure research funding is maximised by avoiding duplication.
This will be a two-hour online workshop, chaired by the co-Chairs of the Make it Public campaign group, Matt Westmore, Chief Executive of the HRA, and Derek Stewart, public contributor.
The objective for attendees of this workshop will be to work together in facilitated small groups to explore this theme, and produce a set of 'top tips' to support best practice for those active in research.
There will also be a short panel discussion, where attendees can hear directly from the study leads and research participants of studies, as well as organisations, working creatively and progressively in this area.
