Journalology is the science of publication practices and the study of these activities. Our group conducts research and gives outreach on a wide range of journalology topics. The Centre for Journalology is based in the Methods Centre of the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute (OHRI) and operates under the leadership of Dr. David Moher. Our goal is to help enhance the reporting quality of research in order to increase the value of biomedical research.
Our Centre has created a series of resources for researchers. These resources will help support researchers publishing transparently, ethically, and openly. The resources are targeted to OHRI-based researchers, but are likely to be broadly applicable to biomedical researchers.

OHRI serves as the EQUATOR Canada host site. The focus of the Canadian EQUATOR Centre is on initiatives that have relevant downstream consequences for the conduct and reporting of biomedical research.
OHRI/uOttawa are serving as COPE pilot research institutions. Research institutions are often the location where publication transgressions first occur – institutions, journals, and editors need to work together to maintain publication best practices.
