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

PastedGraphic-1The 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.
