If you would like a member of the ISRCTN team to add results to your study record, please fill in the form below:
If you have published the results in a peer-reviewed journal, please could you provide a link to the publication on PubMed or its DOI link (starting https://doi.org/)?
If your study is complete but you have not published or are not planning to publish, we would be happy to upload a basic results summary to your record. The basic results should include the following four sections and not contain any interpretation of the results:
Please note that the ICMJE guidelines state that providing basic results to a registry in the requested tabular format is not considered prior publication and will not stop you from publishing in a peer-reviewed journal. For example, this example of a study has both basic results and peer-reviewed publications. However, editors of journals that follow the ICMJE recommendations may consider the posting of more detailed descriptions of study results beyond the requested tabular format to be prior publication.
Basic results can be provided for both interventional and observational studies. Existing reporting guidelines - CONSORT for interventional studies and STROBE for observational studies - can be referred to as a starting point as they both specify how to present information in tabular formats (participant flows, baseline characteristics, list of outcomes) but these reporting guidelines are primarily aimed at publications in peer-reviewed journals.
For examples of basic results summaries, please see the following study records: “My Life After Stroke” - a feasibility study and Using vitamin K to improve strength and balance in older people.
