The San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA)

“The San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA), initiated at the 2012 Annual Meeting of the American Society for Cell Biology by a group of editors and publishers of scholarly journals, recognizes the need to improve the ways in which the outputs of scientific research are evaluated.” (DORA, 2013)

Reporting of Clinical Trial Results

“Thousands of clinical trials have not reported their results; some have not even been registered. Information on what was done and what was found in these trials could be lost forever to doctors and researchers, leading to bad treatment decisions, missed opportunities for good medicine, and trials being repeated. The contributions of the hundreds of thousands of patients who took part in those trials remain unused and unusable. All trials past and present should be registered, and the full methods and the results reported.” (AllTrials, 2014)
