AIMS-2-TRIALS scientists contribute to publications from not only this research programme, but also to others. All of the publications that recognise a financial contribution from AIMS-2-TRIALS are listed below. The publications that are specific to AIMS-2-TRIALS and which have key findings will be covered in more detail on the News pageBecause the process from research manuscript submission to publication may take a long time, authors can post their manuscripts as “preprints” on websites such as bioRxiv to immediately share their findings and allow for discussion and peer feedback during the publication process. All publications listed below are published in “peer reviewed” journals, the publications listed in the box on the right are “preprints”.
