Enhancing the QUAlity and Transparency Of health Research
We launched the survey to help celebrate 10 years of the EQUATOR Network programme. Our website, www.equator-network.org, has offered unique online resources, training, and advice on reporting scientific studies in publications since our official launch in June 2008. We will use your stories to demonstrate the impact of our work, helping us to secure the long-term funding needed to continue our mission.
Don’t be shy – you can still be a part of it!
The survey is still open, so please send us your stories either through this online form or by emailing Iveta Simera (email@example.com). We also have a Spanish version of the survey (La Red EQUATOR – ¿Le hemos ayudado?).
We always like to hear from people with ideas about how we can develop our tools, training, and resources to reach more people, and increase EQUATOR’s impact on the quality and transparency of the medical research literature.
We randomly selected two people who replied to our survey before the end of February to receive a copy of our EQUATOR handbook: Guidelines for Reporting Health Research, signed by Doug Altman. Our two lucky winners are:-
Felipe Aizpuru, Coordinator of the Araba Health Research Unit in Vitoria-Gasteiz, Basque Country, Spain and Pablo Rodriguez Feria, who is a physician working at the department of Public Health at the Universidad de los andes, Bogota, Colombia. Congratulations to Felipe and Pablo!
