The purpose of this Request for Information (RFI) is to solicit public input on the barriers and solutions to reducing publication bias (i.e., the preferential dissemination of statistically significant or otherwise exciting studies) in biomedical research. Dissemination of positive as well as null studies (studies where the primary endpoint or key finding does not reach statistical significance) is vital for scientific progress and accurate assessment of cumulative evidence. However, formal dissemination of null studies is rare. Thus, we are seeking input on potential solutions that will address publication bias across biomedical research fields.

Responses are due April 1st, 2024. You can learn more and submit responses here: https://go.nih.gov/2JgCwlV
