Catalog of Biases in health studies

By ASN Staff

The culmination of collaborative work between the Centre of Evidence-Based Medicine and the University of Oxford, the website, Catalogue of Biases, is a complete database of possible biases that inadvertently make their way into scientific research.

“Bias enters health studies at all stages and often influences the magnitude and direction of results. To obtain the least biased information, researchers much acknowledge the potential presence of biases and take steps to avoid and minimize their effects. Equally in assessing the results of studies, we much be aware of the different types of biases, their potential impact and how this affects interpretation and use of evidence in health care decision making.”

Please explore the catalog to try and minimize the level of biases in your research.
