INTRODUCTION: The present study was motivated by the need to systematically assess the research productivity of the Heart Institute (InCor), Medical School of the University of São Paulo, Brazil. OBJECTIVE: To explore methodology for the assessment of institutional scientific research productivity. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Bibliometric indicators based on searches for author affiliation of original scientific articles or reviews published in journals indexed in the databases Web of Science, MEDLINE, EMBASE, LILACS and SciELO from January 2000 to December 2003 were used in this study. The retrieved records were analyzed according to the index parameters of the journals and modes of access. The number of citations was used to calculate the institutional impact factor. RESULTS: Out of 1253 records retrieved from the five databases, 604 original articles and reviews were analyzed; of these, 246 (41%) articles were published in national journals and 221 (90%) of those were in journals with free online access through SciELO or their own websites. Of the 358 articles published in international journals, 333 (93%) had controlled online access and 223 (67%) were available through the Capes Portal of Journals. The average impact of each article for InCor was 2.224 in the period studied. CONCLUSION: A simple and practical methodology to evaluate the scientific production of health research institutions includes searches in the LILACS database for national journals and in MEDLINE and the Web of Science for international journals. The institutional impact factor of articles indexed in the Web of Science may serve as a measure by which to assess and review the scientific productivity of a research institution.

The aim of this study was to review original scientific articles describing the relationship between atmospheric pollution and damage to human health. We also aimed to determine which of these studies mentioned public policy issues. Original articles relating to atmospheric pollution and human health published between 1995 and 2009 were retrieved from the PubMed database and analyzed. This study included only articles dealing with atmospheric pollutants resulting primarily from vehicle emissions. Three researchers were involved in the final selection of the studies, and the chosen articles were approved by at least two of the three researchers. Of the 84 non-Brazilian studies analyzed, 80 showed an association between atmospheric pollution and adverse effects on human health. Moreover, 66 showed evidence of adverse effects on human health, even at levels below the permitted emission standards. Three studies mentioned public policies aimed at changing emission standards. Similarly, the 29 selected Brazilian studies reported adverse associations with human health, and 27 showed evidence of adverse effects even at levels below the legally permitted emission standards. Of these studies, 16 mentioned public policies aimed at changing emission standards. Based on the Brazilian and non-Brazilian scientific studies that have been conducted...

Neste trabalho são descritas as técnicas de análise estatística utilizadas e a acessibilidade estatística em uma amostra dos artigos originais publicados no período 1996-2006 em duas revistas de pesquisa na área de fruticultura: a Revista Brasileira de Fruticultura (RBF) e a revista francesa Fruits. No total foram classificados 986 artigos em 16 categorias de análise estatística, ordenadas em grau ascendente de complexidade. No período analisado, foi constatado um aumento no uso de análises mais sofisticadas ao longo do tempo em ambos as revistas. Os trabalhos publicados pela RBF aplicaram com maior freqüência técnicas estatísticas mais complexas, com maior utilização de delineamentos em blocos aleatorizados, arranjos fatoriais, parcelas subdivididas e modelos hierárquicos, e do teste de Tukey para comparações múltiplas de médias. Nos trabalhos publicados pela revista Fruits, predominou o uso de outros testes paramétricos e do teste de Duncan. O pacote estatístico SAS foi o mais utilizado nos artigos publicados em ambas as revistas. Os leitores da revista RBF precisaram de um nível de conhecimento estatístico mais elevado para ter acesso à maior parte dos artigos publicados no período, em comparação com os leitores da revista francesa.; The statistical techniques and statistical accessibility were analyzed in a sample collected from the original articles published between 1996 and 2006 by two fruticulture journals: the Revista Brasileira de Fruticultura (RBF) and the French journal Fruits.

Concern about the identity of nursing professionals has existed since Florence Nightingale. The exercise of the nursing profession must be based on scientific principles so that the actual health problems of a given community can be assessed and actions targeted at improving the population’s quality of life can be designed from such assessments. This problem assessment is referred to as Nursing Diagnosis. NANDA defines diagnosis as “a clinical judgment about individual, family or community responses to actual or potential health problems/life processes. Nursing diagnosis provides the basis for selection of nursing interventions to achieve outcomes for which nurses are accountable”. The present study aimed at investigating the scientific production on Nursing Diagnosis (NANDA). This is an literature review. For data collection, an instrument that addressed the following items was used: identification of original articles and evaluation of their objectives, methodological characteristics, results and conclusion. In the present review, 15 articles that met the inclusion criteria were analyzed. They were all authored by nurses. Four articles addressed obstetrics, puerperium and neonatology, and the diagnosis of an unsatisfactory breastfeeding process was observed in 100% of cases. As regards chronic diseases...

Objectives: Evaluate the production and the research collaborative network on Leishmaniasis in South America. Methods: A bibliometric research was carried out using SCOPUS database. The analysis unit was original research articles published from 2000 to 2011, that dealt with leishmaniasis and that included at least one South American author. The following items were obtained for each article: journal name, language, year of publication, number of authors, institutions, countries, and others variables. Results: 3,174 articles were published, 2,272 of them were original articles. 1,160 different institutional signatures, 58 different countries and 398 scientific journals were identified. Brazil was the country with more articles (60.7%) and Oswaldo Cruz Foundation (FIOCRUZ) had 18% of Brazilian production, which is the South American nucleus of the major scientific network in Leishmaniasis. Conclusions: South American scientific production on Leishmaniasis published in journals indexed in SCOPUS is focused on Brazilian research activity. It is necessary to strengthen the collaboration networks. The first step is to identify the institutions with higher production, in order to perform collaborative research according to the priorities of each country.

OBJECTIVE: To assess and compare the quality of nonstructured and structured abstracts of original research articles in three medical journals. DESIGN: Blind, criterion-based observational study. SAMPLE: Random sample of 300 abstracts (25 abstracts per journal each year) of articles published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ), the Canadian Medical Association Journal and the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) in 1988 and 1989 (nonstructured abstracts) and in 1991 and 1992 (structured abstracts). MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: The quality of abstracts was measured against 33 objective criteria, which were divided into eight categories (purpose, research design, setting, subjects, intervention, measurement of variables, results and conclusions). The quality score was determined by dividing the number of criteria present by the number applicable; the score varied from 0 to 1. RESULTS: The overall mean quality scores for nonstructured and structured abstracts were 0.57 and 0.74 respectively (p < 0.001). The frequency in meeting the specific criteria was generally higher for the structured abstracts than for the nonstructured ones. The mean quality score was higher for nonstructured abstracts in JAMA than for those in BMJ (0.60 v. 0.54...

To determine the interest of academic general internists and family physicians in specific features of electronic journal publications, we surveyed 350 physicians, 175 randomly selected from each of 2 medical societies: the Society of General Internal Medicine, and the Society of Teachers of Family Medicine. The response rate was 70%. Most general internists and family physicians used online journals sometimes or often. Most general internists and family physicians reported moderate to high interest in having links from original articles, reviews, or editorials to listed references (77% to 89% of internists and 65% to 81% of family physicians) and electronic medical reference texts (73% to 78% of internists and 65% to 83% of family physicians). Less than 25% of both groups reported moderate to high interest in having links to initiate dialog with other readers or to communicate comments to the author or editor. General internists were more likely than were family physicians to have moderate to high interest in having links to appendices and supportive material (e.g., 66% of general internists versus 46% of family physicians for original articles; P < .05) and less likely to have moderate to high interest in links to health-related web sites (44% of general internists versus 69% of family physicians for original articles; P < .05). We conclude that academic general internists and family physicians have strong but not identical interests in specific features of electronic publication that primary care–oriented journals should consider.

Finding high quality articles is increasingly difficult with the exponential growth of the medical literature. This growth requires new methods to identify high quality articles. In prior work, we introduced a machine learning method to identify high quality MEDLINE documents in internal medicine. The performance of the original filter models built with this corpus on years outside 1998–2000 was not assessed directly. Validating the performance of the original filter models on current corpora is crucial to validate them for use in current years, to verify that the model fitting and model error estimation procedures do not over-fit the models, and to validate consistency of the chosen ACPJ gold standard (i.e., that ACPJ editorial policies and criteria are stable over time). Our prospective validation results indicated that in the categories of treatment, diagnosis, prognosis, and etiology, the original machine learning filter models built from the 1998–2000 corpora maintained their discriminatory performance of 0.95, 0.97, 0.94, and 0.94 area under the curve in each respective category when applied to a 2005 corpus. The ACPJ is a stable, reliable gold standard and the machine learning methodology provides robust models and model performance estimates. Machine learning filter models built with 1998–2000 corpora can be applied to identify high quality articles in recent years.

The pathophysiologic mechanisms behind urologic disease are increasingly being elucidated. The object of this investigation was to evaluate the publication policies of urologic journals during a period of progressively better understanding and management of urologic disease. Based on the ISI Web of Knowledge Journal Citation Reports and the PubMed database, the number and percentage of original experimental, original clinical, review or commentarial articles published between 2002–2010 in six leading urologic journals were analyzed. “British Journal of Urology International”, “European Urology”, “Urologic Oncology-Seminars and Original Investigations” (“Urologic Oncology”), “Urology”, “The Journal of Urology”, and “World Journal of Urology” were chosen, because these journals publish articles in all four categories. The publication policies of the six journals were very heterogeneous during the time period from 2002 to 2010. The percentage of original experimental and original clinical articles, related to all categories, remained the same in “British Journal of Urology International”, “Urologic Oncology”, “Urology” and “The Journal of Urology”. The percentage of experimental reports in “World Journal of Urology” between 2002–2010 significantly increased from 10 to 20%. A distinct elevation in the percentage of commentarial articles accompanied by a reduction of clinical articles became evident in “European Urology” which significantly correlated with a large increase in the journal’s impact factor. No clearly superior policy could be identified with regard to a general increase in the impact factors from all the journals. The publication policy of urologic journals does not expressly reflect the increase in scientific knowledge...

Introdução: Os vírus que causam doenças em humanos podem causar epidemias e pandemias levando à morte de milhares de pessoas. Quando um vírus infecta o organismo, o sistema imunológico é ativado para tentar controlar essa infecção. A principal resposta contra vírus em geral consiste em células T CD8+ citotóxicas e os anticorpos produzidos por células B. Contudo, tanto as células B como as T CD8+ necessitam de células auxiliares T CD4+ para uma resposta eficiente, sendo que a produção de anticorpos precisa de um tipo especifico de células auxiliares, as células T CD4+ foliculares (TFH). Ambas as respostas podem gerar memória, assim em uma segunda infecção pela mesma cepa viral podemos responder de maneira mais eficaz. Nesses dois artigos seguintes discutiremos a função de células TFH na resposta viral. Primeiramente temos um artigo que revisa todos os estudos que conseguiram fazer uma ligação entre essa população celular e vírus diversos, como HIV, HBV, EBV, LCMV e Influenza. Após temos um artigo original tentando desvendar o mecanismo pelo qual o Vírus Sincicial Respiratório (RSV) inibe uma resposta imunológica humoral adequada. Anticorpos gerados em infecções pelo RSV frequentemente possuem baixa afinidade e pouco poder de neutralização...

In this thesis, our aims were to address some specific novel areas advancing the utility of cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging in three major areas of interest. These areas included the utility of CMR early after STEMI, assessment of infarct size and microvascular obstruction post ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) by CMR and ‘in-lab’ predictors of ‘no-reflow’ phenomenon. The introduction of this thesis included 3 review articles. The first review article summarised the evolution of treatment strategies for STEMI over the last few decades. In our second review article, we reviewed the role of CMR after acute myocardial infarction. We highlighted the potential of CMR in offering the prospect of performing a ‘triple vital assessment’ of left ventricular remodelling, ischemia in the non-culprit territory and myocardial viability after acute myocardial infarction. In our third review article, we reviewed the ‘no-reflow’ phenomenon. In this review article, we summarised the diagnosis, pathophysiology and treatment of the ‘no-reflow’ phenomenon. In our results section, we included five original articles. In our first original article, we set out to determine the safety and utility of adenosine stress CMR post STEMI. As up to 40% of patients presenting with STEMI have multivessel disease...

Vaccination of pregnant women causes concerns both for themselves and for their healthcare providers. The main concern is the possibility of transmission of the virus/bacteria to the fetus in development. Due to obvious underlying ethical questions, clinical trials in this area are scarce and of difficult accomplishment.The aim of this paper is to formulate proper guidance for vaccine Administration in pregnant women, particularly on cases of inadvertent administration, through the review of current evidence on live-attenuated vaccine administration in pregnant women.Medline, Bandolier, The Cochrane Library and National Guideline Clearinghouse were searched using the following keywords (MeSH terms): vaccination AND pregnancy. The search was limited to articles published from January 2003 to December 2008. After exclusion of articles not concordant with the objectives of the review, 12 articles were selected (four review articles, two guidelines, one dissertation, the remaining were original articles), as well as the portuguese guidelines from Direcção Geral de Saúde (DGS) in what respects to vaccine administration.The contraindication of live-attenuated vaccine administration in pregnant women is based on the hypothetical/theoretical risk of potential negative effects for the developing fetus. Physicians should consider vaccinating pregnant women on the basis of the risks of vaccination versus the benefits of protection in each particular situation. Women should be told to avoid getting pregnant in the 28 days after liveattenuated vaccination. However...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the quality of abstracts of original research articles. DESIGN: Blind, criterion-based survey. SAMPLE: Systematic sample of 33 abstracts of original research articles published in CMAJ in 1989. MEASUREMENT: The quality of abstracts was measured against a checklist of evaluation criteria, which were divided into eight categories. A score for each abstract was obtained by dividing the number of criteria present by the number applicable. The overall mean score was also determined. RESULTS: The overall mean score of abstract quality was 0.63 (standard deviation 0.13) out of 1. Of the abstracts reporting study design 56% did not include specific technical descriptors. About 52% did not explicitly describe the study variables. In describing subject selection 79% failed to use specific technical terms. Of the abstracts reporting results 66% did not provide appropriate supporting data. Of those that gave conclusions 86% did not address study limitations and 93% made no recommendations for future study. CONCLUSION: Most of the abstracts provided some information pertaining to each evaluation criterion but did not provide detail sufficient to enhance the reader's understanding of the article. On the basis of the study sample the abstracts need improvement in description of research design...

PURPOSE: To investigate the relevance of the term superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS) and demonstrate that this term is important enough to be added to the MeSH database and listed in International Anatomical Nomenclature. METHODS: Terms related to SMAS were selected from original articles retrieved from the ISI Web of Science and MEDLINE (PubMed) databases. Groups of terms were created to define a search strategy with high-sensitivity and restricted to scientific periodicals devoted to plastic surgery. This study included articles between January 1996 and May 2009, whose titles, abstracts, and keywords were searched for SMAS-related terms and all occurrences were recorded. RESULTS: A total of 126 original articles were retrieved from the main periodicals related to plastic surgery in the referred databases. Of these articles, 51.6% had SMAS-related terms in the abstract only, and 25.4% had SMAS-related terms in both the title and abstract. The term 'superficial musculoaponeurotic system' was present as a keyword in 19.8% of the articles. The most frequent terms were 'SMAS' (71.4%) and superficial musculoaponeurotic system (62.7%). CONCLUSION: The term SMAS refers to a structure relevant enough to start a discussion about indexing it as a keyword and as an official term in Terminologia Anatomica: International Anatomical Terminology.

INTRODUCTION: The present study was motivated by the need to systematically assess the research productivity of the Heart Institute (InCor), Medical School of the University of São Paulo, Brazil. OBJECTIVE: To explore methodology for the assessment of institutional scientific research productivity. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Bibliometric indicators based on searches for author affiliation of original scientific articles or reviews published in journals indexed in the databases Web of Science, MEDLINE, EMBASE, LILACS and SciELO from January 2000 to December 2003 were used in this study. The retrieved records were analyzed according to the index parameters of the journals and modes of access. The number of citations was used to calculate the institutional impact factor. RESULTS: Out of 1253 records retrieved from the five databases, 604 original articles and reviews were analyzed; of these, 246 (41%) articles were published in national journals and 221 (90%) of those were in journals with free online access through SciELO or their own websites. Of the 358 articles published in international journals, 333 (93%) had controlled online access and 223 (67%) were available through the Capes Portal of Journals. The average impact of each article for InCor was 2.224 in the period studied. CONCLUSION: A simple and practical methodology to evaluate the scientific production of health research institutions includes searches in the LILACS database for national journals and in MEDLINE and the Web of Science for international journals. The institutional impact factor of articles indexed in the Web of Science may serve as a measure by which to assess and review the scientific productivity of a research institution.
