Registry for systematic reviews created

A registry for the protocols of systematic reviews has been created. The aim of encouraging registration of systematic reviews (as for clinical trials) is to ensure the results are reported responsibly and according to the original design, and also to reduce non-publication of negative findings. The registry is described in a Lancet article DOI:10.1016/S0140-6736(10)60903-8 and can be found at
