The NC3Rs is hosting a workshop on publication bias on 24 and 25 February 2015 in Central London.
The aim of the workshop is to bring together funders, journals, and scientists from academia and industry to discuss the impact of publication bias in animal research. The workshop will include a review of the current initiatives to overcome publication bias from prospective registration of studies to scientific publishing of negative results and open-access repositories for all research findings. The two day event will include a debate and breakout group sessions to find common ground and map out a strategy to support researchers. A preliminary agenda can be found here.
The event will be opened by Professor Jeremy Farrar, Director of the Wellcome Trust.
