Alert! Critical Information
At the time of publication, many journals insist upon Prospective Registration of trial
For prospective registration please ensure that at the time of trial submission, patient enrolment in the study has not begun and in the CTRI form:
- Date of first enrolment (India) is an anticipated future date and
- Recruitment status of trial (India) is Not Yet Recruiting
If the above conditions are not met, upon registration trial is flagged as Trial Registered Retrospectively. Once registered, trial flagging cannot be changed.
Currently CTRI accepts and registers trials which are ongoing and completed, however from 1st April 2018 CTRI will accept and register trials only prospectively.
