Practitioners, policymakers and regulators increasingly rely on reports of trials, systematic reviews and meta-analyses to make decisions about which programmes to implement and fund. To make the right decisions, they need complete, accurate and transparent reports. Even when studies have been done well, incomplete reports of how they were conducted and of the results can prevent evidence from being used to improve real-world practices and policies.

CEBI researchers have been innovators in improving the way social and psychological research is reported, so that it can have the biggest positive impact on policies and practice and be most useful to policymakers and others.
