When to Register your Study on ClinicalTrials.Gov
Question: When should I register my study?
Answer: Generally, BEFORE you begin enrollment.
HOWEVER, NIH-supported clinical trials, and clinical trials that will be published in ICMJE-affiliated academic medical journals are subject to those organizations’ policies. Those policies require that clinical trials be registered before the first subject is enrolled.
For more information, please see:
- The International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) Policy on Clinical Trial Registration
- The NIH Policy on the Dissemination of NIH-Funded Clinical Trial Information
