New ClinicalTrials.gov Beta Version Available for Public Testing!

Posted by on November 3rd, 2017 Posted in: Clinical Trials, NLM Resources

A new beta version of ClinicalTrials.gov is now available for public testing. Key features of this beta version include:

  • updated search for the “Recruiting and not yet recruiting” studies feature on the homepage
  • new location search option enables you to limit your search based on the distance (number of miles radius) from a specified location
  • updated “Search Results” page design that brings the list of studies found closer to the top of page
  • updated “Glossary” design provides term definitions while continuing to view the page containing the terms

This beta version of ClinicalTrials.gov is the latest component in a series of changes that started earlier this year to enhance users’ ability to search, display, and review information about clinical research studies (see ClinicalTrials.gov: First in a Series of Changes to Improve Usability for Stakeholders). Another set of ClinicalTrials.gov updates was released in September.

The National of Library of Medicine welcomes comments, questions, and suggestions on this new beta version of ClinicalTrials.gov. There are two methods to provide feedback:

  • Respond to the online survey by clicking on the “Give us feedback” link at the top of the beta site.
  • Click on “Customer Support” in the footer of both the ClinicalTrials.gov Web site and the beta version of the Web site to link to the NLM Customer Support page. Then click on Contact NLM at the top of the NLM Customer Support page.
