Opening Keynote: Missing Trials, Dr. Ben Goldacre (9 am – 10:15 am)

We like to imagine that medicine is based on good quality evidence from clinical trials. The reality is much darker: around half of all the trials done on treatments today are left unpublished, their results withheld from the doctors, researchers, and patients who need them most. And yet nobody has broken the law. This talk is on how data gets withheld, why it matters, and the battle to get all trials reported.

IMG_2811Our keynote speaker is Ben Goldacre who is a doctor, academic, campaigner and writer whose work focuses on uses and misuses of science and statistics by journalists, politicians, drug companies and quacks. His first book Bad Science reached #1 in the UK non-fiction charts and has sold over half a million copies worldwide. His second book Bad Pharma discusses problems in medicine, focusing on missing trials, badly designed research, and biased dissemination of evidence. His third is a collection of columns and papers. He wrote the Bad Science column for a decade in the UK Guardian newspaper, and has written for the Times, the Telegraph, the Mail, the New York Times, the BMJ, and more, alongside presenting documentaries for the BBC, and appearing regularly on radio and TV.

In policy work, he is co-author of a 2012 UK government Cabinet Office paper on getting more randomised controlled trials on policy questions; conducted an independent external review in 2012 for the Department For Education on how to improve the use of evidence in teaching; and is co-founder of AllTrials, a campaign by doctors, academics, funders, pharmacists, professional bodies, patients and the public, to prevent trial results being withheld. His non-profit company Better Data has built Randomise Me, an open trials platform for the general public; he is PI on OpenTrials, a linked database on clinical trials; and he has worked on various health IT projects such as and

Ben is currently a Research Fellow in Epidemiology at LSHTM, and a Senior Clinical Research Fellow at the Centre for Evidence Based Medicine in the University of Oxford. His blog is at and he is @bengoldacre on twitter.

General Session: The Role of ORCID in the Publication Process (11 am – noon)

orcid-logoEditors and publishers face authorship issues on a daily basis. Who should be listed as an author? How can an author role be appropriately acknowledged? How can we discern author responsibility? Linked to this is conflict-of-interest reporting: who needs to report what, and in what context? For example, a perennial “pain point” for editors and publishers is managing author databases, which for many journals are collections of duplicate records requiring ongoing investment to update and disambiguate. Accurate author databases are needed to understand an author’s history, perform accurate name-based searches, and find and manage reviewers. Another pain point is processing of metadata in the reference section of accepted publications; in the absence of author identifiers, these metadata require manual disambiguation to match authors with articles. ORCID provides a central registry of researchers that crosses disciplines, work places, sectors, and national boundaries. By supporting linkages across multiple datasets such a registry can become a switchboard for researchers and publishers alike in tracking and managing the dissemination of research findings.

Meadows_2015This session will introduce ORCID to INANE attendees, and discuss how we can capitalize and maximize the benefit of a consistent identifier for our authors and journals.

Our speaker will be Alice Meadows, Communication Director for ORCID, where Alice develops and implements their communications plan, in order to broaden awareness of the organization and its services and programs and support adoption by key stakeholders and audiences.  She is in charge of publications, social media strategy, and the Ambassadors program. She supports the Communications Steering Group of ORCID. Previously, Alice served in multiple posts at John Wiley & Sons, most recently as Director of Communications.

Session Moderator: Julia Snethen
