Aim and content
This PhD Supervisor Talk is for PhD students and PhD supervisors at the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences. Other faculty members and postdocs are also welcome.

Publication bias is a subject often discussed in biomedical and clinical research, particularly when researchers invest time and money into a project which yields null results. Should we spend the time to write this up? Who will publish my work?

When this speaker noticed the issue in clinical PhD and lab postdoc studies, she decided to try to address this!
Consider the importance of discoverability of your work – even if results are null, to prevent research waste, advance research understanding, or even potential harm to patients.
Hear some insights and lessons learned in the process of trying to make new inroads into enhancing research publication - 6 years into the project!

We can’t do this alone as a small non-profit, but we can advocate for better infrastructure and support from funders in improving the quality of scientific research output and encourage researchers and institutions to see value for scientists and for patients in enhancing transparency and discoverability.
