The Ottawa Statement
is a consensus document that aims to guide the implementation of global trial registration.
Endorsed by individuals and organisations throughout the international research community,
the Statement recognises that public availability of information about all trials in healthcare
is essential to ensuring ethical and scientific integrity in medical research.
The Statement outlines the fundamental principles for trial registration
operationalisation of the protocol registration
and of results reporting
Following the Ottawa Statement Part 1, which outlined the principles of trial registration,
the Ottawa Group developed the principles of implementation of trial registration and
is proposing them as the
Ottawa Statement Part 2
and outlined the Ottawa Statement Part 3
on principles of disclosure of trial results and their implementation.
Interested parties are invited to
join the Ottawa group
in endorsing the Statement and
