10 March 2021

Since the introduction of compulsory registration, the rate of reported prospective studies and the quality of study information has been steadily increasing.

The fact that planned clinical trials are entered into public registries such as ClinicalTrials.gov increases the visibility and transparency of research. It  is therefore an important measure against the high rate of unpublished research data.

Around 20-30% of the studies conducted at university hospitals in Switzerland are never published in a scientific journal. The reasons for this are manifold. For instance, studies with negative results or studies that were not completed are difficult to get published in scientific journals.
