National Research Register

The National Research Register is the most comprehensive register of current research in the NHS, and has enormous potential to:


  • Identify unpublished research - particularly important to systematic reviewers of research
  • Provide early warning on research which may lead to important research findings
  • Improve the uptake and participation in clinical trails
  • Identify and bring together researchers between and across related areas of research
  • Help avoid unnecessary duplication in research - a waste of resources as well as potentially unethical

Records held on the National Research Register can include details on the research title, research question, methodology, sample group, outcome measures and research project contacts. Projects are indexed on an ongoing basis, using the Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) thesaurus of the National Library of Medicine.
