This exploratory study investigates the characteristics of publications cited on clinical guidelines, and the funding sources they acknowledge, in order to better understand how research is translated into changes in policy and practice.
Project Retrosight analysed 29 case studies of cardiovascular and stroke research in Australia, Canada, and the UK, and found that clinical research has greater societal impact over a 15-20 year timescale, while basic research has greater academic impact.

Project Retrosight analysed 29 case studies of cardiovascular and stroke research in Australia, Canada and the UK, examining the diversity of impact produced by this kind of research and identifying factors associated with various levels of payback.
This work explores impacts of cardiovascular and stroke research funded 15–20 years ago and draws out aspects associated with high or low impact. It describes 29 case studies of grants from Australia, Canada and UK. Methodology volume.
This comparative analysis of English and U.S. forensic DNA databases and profiling attempted to confirm what many senior U.S. law enforcement officials believe: that the English criminal justice system has capitalized more fully on the crime-fighting potential of DNA evidence.
This paper highlights key points from a high-level Forum organised and facilitated by the Office of Health Economics and RAND Europe that discussed spillover effects from biomedical and health research, and strategies to realise their benefits.
This documented briefing provides an overview of the European Research Area and explores whether such an integrated research area exists in health and biomedical research. The report is supported by the Department of Health (England).
Bibliometrics is an increasingly important tool for research evaluation. The report provides an accessible, 'beginner's guide' to bibliometric theory and application in the area of health research and development (R&D) decision-making.
This report presents findings from a literature review to evaluate grant peer review in the health sciences. Research for the report was conducted with funding support from the Department of Health (England). The report is available in English only.
Provides an overview of health and medical research in Japan, describing the sectors that performs such research, how it is funded, how health research priorities are set, and current and emerging health research issues in Japan.
