[Comment] Public availability of trial protocols

The Lancet has improved efforts to reduce research waste and increase the importance of scientific contributions through the Reward Campaign. One of the targets of this campaign is to make the methods of studies more accessible, which could be accomplished by increasing the public availability of research protocols. A protocol is a document that describes the aims, interventions, outcomes, statistical procedures, ethical considerations, and planned use and dissemination of data before the start of a clinical trial.
