Results of bibliometric analysis of M17+ (8.12. 2022)
The Institute of Physiology of the CAS, v.v.i. (hereinafter referred to as IPHYS) was ranked among the top-ranked research organizations in the bibliometric evaluation of publications for the period 2016-2020 in the M17+ system. In particular, the high number of high quality publications in the first quartile of journals (Q1) according to the article influence score (AIS) parameter with a corresponding author from IPHYS (55%) was positively evaluated by the relevant Basic Medicine Expert Panel. As stated in the Panel report, information on the corresponding author is essential to determine the leader of the collaborating teams, who is the originator of the project and who manages the whole project. The excellent results of this evaluation thus confirm the important position of IPHYS in the field of biomedical research in the Czech Republic and the important role of IPHYS scientists in characterizing the complex mechanisms of origin and potential therapies for a number of major diseases of civilization.
Starting this year, research in this area will be strengthened by the participation of most IPHYS research teams in one of two strategic projects supported by the European Union through Next Generation EU EXCELES, the National Institute for Metabolic and Cardiovascular Disease Research (CarDia) and the National Institute for Neurological Research (NINR). IPHYS's partnership in these two projects will allow to deepen collaboration between basic and clinical research and improve the quality of biomedical research across the Czech Republic.
