Funders and funding agencies are looking for more evidence of societal impact of research. A 2013 article titled, “Citation Analysis May Severely Underestimate the Impact of Clinical Research as Compared to Basic Research” confirmed that there are “…large differences in citation practices between research areas. Low-impact research areas tend to focus on clinical intervention research, while high-impact research areas are often more oriented on basic and diagnostic research.” Finding references to clinical research in clinical guidelines, such as the ones published by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) helps fill in the gaps that traditional citations leave behind. The session will talk about the need for a new citation category called Clinical Citations and where and how to find the impact of clinical and translational research. This includes mining many clinical guidelines from many areas starting with the NICE Clinical Guidelines, but also guidelines from other regions to bring a global picture of impact.
Key Learning Points:
- What is a Clinical Citation is
- Which clinical guidelines can be mined for Clinical Citations
- How to use Clinical Citations for funders
