General Tips and Support for Submitting a Proposal

The International Committee of Medical Journal Editors, ICMJE, requires a prospective registration in one of the registers accepted by the ICMJE for all clinical trials that are to be published in one of the participating journals.

This is also required in the new version of the Declaration from Helsinki:

  • §19. Every clinical trial must be registered in a publicly accessible database before recruitment of the first subject.

Registration is possible, for example, in the German Clinical Trials Register or DRKS.
