BMJ announces agreement
Anca Babor: “We are thrilled to be working with Baylor College of Medicine.”

BMJ says, under this new agreement, Baylor College of Medicine (BCM) will have access to BMJ Impact Analytics, one of the first research impact tools focused on health and social care, reinforcing the university’s commitment to supporting a healthy, responsible impact culture in research.

Developed in collaboration with start-up Overton, BMJ Impact Analytics is one of the most comprehensive tools to track and share the real-world impact of medical and health research. It helps academic institutions and funders discover where research has been cited in clinical guidance and health policies worldwide. It shows direct links to patient outcomes (citing BMJ’s leading decision support tool, BMJ Best Practice) and provides citations in context, added the publisher.

Sheila Ryan, PhD, assistant vice president for clinical research initiatives at Baylor College of Medicine, said: “The adoption of BMJ’s analytics platform enhances BCM’s vision of how we improve health worldwide through scientific scholarship and collaborations across disciplines and groundbreaking initiatives in basic, translational, and clinical research.”

Anca Babor, director customers and markets, publishing & events at BMJ, said: “We are thrilled to be working with Baylor College of Medicine. Our vision for a healthier world aligns, and I am delighted BMJ Impact Analytics will support BCM in its important mission of furthering education, healthcare and community service locally and globally. It will do this by going beyond traditional metrics, offering insights into the real-world impact of health and social care research. Together, we look forward to driving innovation, improving patient outcomes, and contributing to the global advancement of healthcare knowledge."
