The Health Research Authority’s vision is that trusted information about health and social care research studies is publicly available for the benefit of all.

Last year more than 700 individuals and organisations responded to our Make it Public consultation. We asked for your views on how we can drive a lasting change in research transparency, which is central to ethical research practice. You gave your feedback about how to ensure that studies are registered, results are made public and participants are informed of those results.
We told you that a final strategy, informed by the consultation, would be produced by the end of the year.
Our Make it Public strategy was agreed, in principle, by the HRA’s Board when it met in December. The Board thanked everyone involved in the consultation and agreed that the strategy had been developed through a robust process. However due to the General Election the Board postponed approval of the strategy. The Board will meet again in early February 2020 to agree the implementation plan.
We will make an announcement about strategy after the February Board meeting. You can also follow our progress via our website, or on social media via Twitter or LinkedIn.
In the meantime, thank you for your contribution and commitment to making health and social care research open and transparent. This is a hugely important strategy for us and one we know has the potential to make a real difference to health and social care research in the UK.
