Research is pivotal to economic growth and addressing societal challenges
Research is pivotal to economic growth and addressing societal challenges

  • Science is not a luxury which is the preserve of developed countries... Technology and innovation are key to achieving long-term economic and social development.

  • Science and innovation are recognised the world over as crucial to economic competitiveness.”

  • The Royal Society: Knowledge, Networks and Nations, 2011

Four trends continue to increase the value of research information
Four trends continue to increase the value of research information

1. Interdisciplinarity

Science is becoming

more global

and more complex

4. Data intensity

2. Collaboration

& Mobility

3. EmergingMarkets


Trend 1 research is increasingly interdisciplinary
Trend 1: Research is increasingly interdisciplinary information

  • Interdisciplinarity:

  • Increases output

  • Increases quality

  • Stimulates big discoveries

  • Global research is becoming more and more interdesciplinary

  • Modern technologies are cross disciplinary

  • Books are usually more interdisciplinary than journals

  • Research analytical tools on the market trace interdisciplinary research fields for institutions and countries

  • Interdisciplinary research attracts more funding

  • Articles resulting from interdisciplinary research receive more citations


Trend 2 research is increasingly internationally collaborative
Trend 2: Research is increasingly internationally informationcollaborative

Percentage of internationally co-authored articles increased from 26% in 1996 over 40% in 2013.

“Collaboration enhances the quality of research, improves its efficiency and effectiveness, and is increasingly necessary as the scale of budgets and research challenges grow”

- The Royal Society, 2011

Share of internationally co-authored articles

  • International collaboration drives:

  • Quality via increased number of citations

  • Subsequent growth of international visibility

Trend 3 emerging markets are rapidly growing their research activity
Trend 3: Emerging markets are rapidly growing their research activity

  • Drivers

  • Developed economiesneed to use research results and collaborate

  • Russiangrowth rate was positive over the last 5 years, but publication share has declined

Trend 4 research is increasingly data intensive
Trend 4: Research is increasingly data intensive activity

Very high importance, very high satisfaction

According to the study researchers value research articles and experimental data as very important. However they would like to have access to experimental data as easily as to articles.

Ease of access

High importance, low satisfaction

Importance of access

Great scientific publishing world activitySTM publishersregister, review, disseminateand preserve research outputs

  • Each year

    • 3 million articles submitted

    • 300,000 peer reviewers

    • 1.5 million articles published

  • 30 million readers

  • 2 billion digital article downloads

  • 30 million article citations

rejection rate

time to decision; time to publication

article length restrictions

charges: OA publication fees, pages, colour

** Impact factor is used as a measure of the academic usefulness of a journal

IF = recorded number of citations in a year (eg 2010) to scholarly articles in the journal in preceding two years (eg 2008 and 2009)

BMJ 2012 IF 17.2


Pre submission inquiries

Pre-submission inquiries activity

Always consider inquiring when you’re:

unsure about suitability for the journal

seeking rapid review/publication

wanting to explain special circumstances

Provide sufficient study information:

article abstract

perceived value to journal audience

relationship of study to existing body of work


What does the bmj prioritise

What does The BMJ prioritise? activity

Original, robust research studies that can improve

Doctors’ decision making in medical practice, policy, education, or future research and will be important to general medical readers internationally

The BMJ’s purpose: “Answering questions; questioning answers”

Be confident at resubmission activity

Most reviewers & editors want to be helpful

Follow journal instructions

Address all comments; but need not agree with all

Avoid easy fixes/shortcuts

If rejected; tell next journal how you addressed reviewers’ comments

Misconduct

Misconduct activity

Fabrication:making up data or results and recording or reporting themFalsification:manipulating research materials, equipment, or processes, or changing or omitting data or results such that the research is not accurately represented in the research recordPlagiarism:the appropriation of another person's ideas, processes, results, or words without giving appropriate credit

US Office of Research Integrity http://ori.dhhs.gov/misconduct/definition_misconduct.shtml


Incomplete reporting is misconduct: activity

The BMJ requires authors’ declaration

Transparency declaration

The lead author* affirms that

this manuscript is an honest,

accurate, and transparent

account of the study being

reported; that no important

aspects of the study have

been omitted; and that any

discrepancies from the study
