It is estimated that $170 billion is wasted globally annually on biomedical research at various stages of the research life-cycle. Each year our library collaborates on over 40 knowledge synthesis projects (such as systematic reviews). A statistical analysis of our collaborations since 2017 reveals that only 59% of projects are published. This session will outline the new efforts undertaken to educate research teams to mitigate research waste and support the publication of knowledge synthesis projects.
