The NIHR is the world’s first health research funder to publish comprehensive accounts of its commissioned research within its own publicly and permanently available journals. The NIHR Journals Library comprises a suite of five open access peer-reviewed journals reporting results from a range of health research areas.
It aims to increase the impact of NIHR research, so that evidence is shared more effectively with the NHS and wider public health landscape. It also improves access to the full story of our research projects, to ensure that they can be more easily reproduced and that there is a transparent record of the research carried out. To achieve this, all project information appears in one location alongside the journal report, its summaries and other content produced as part of the project, such as articles published in other journals and research data.
