Bibliometric analysis of European and African research output within the scope of EDCTP2
EDCTP published a ‘Call for Tender for Bibliometric Analysis’ on 11 October 2012. The objective of this analysis is to quantify research output of European and African researchers in the field of HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria and neglected infectious diseases (NIDs), identify leading institutions and researchers in these fields, and describe collaboration patterns at a country and institutional level.
The bibliometric analysis is to complement the on-going project to map European and African national research programmes, partnerships, clinical research activities and capacities (2003-2011) within the scope of the second EDCTP programme. A first report Charting research: opportunities for collaborative research on poverty-related and neglected infectious diseases was published in September 2012.
To consolidate the achievements of the current programme and in preparation for EDCTP2, EDCTP has received a Coordination and Support Action (CSA) grant from the European Commission. Part of the funding of this grant will be used to perform a comprehensive mapping analysis, including bibliometrics, of European and African national research programmes, partnerships, activities and capacities (2003-2011) in the field of HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria and neglected infectious diseases (NIDs) .
For more information on the tender, see Call for tender for Bibliometric analysis. Proposals should be submitted no later than 1 November 2012.
