Alltrials.net

Alltrials.net is a UK group behind a public campaign to call for all trials to be registered and all results reported. COPE has agreed to support this initiative with the following statement: "COPE supports the AllTrials initiative for all trials to be registered and all results reported. Publication ethics is not just about such issues as prevention of plagiarism and managing conflicts of interest, but is, more widely, about ensuring the integrity of the scholarly literature. Registration of trials and full reporting of results is a critical step in counteracting the bias towards positive results in the medical literature."
