Publishing papers

We aim to publish one or two papers in peer reviewed journals from each of the studies. These are sent to social science and specialist and general medical journals. Over 60 articles have been published since 2001. We regard this as an important way of disseminating our results widely to all types of professional readers as well as ensuring that the quality and academic credibility of the studies is maintained. See a list of all of our publications.

The Research Assessment Exercise (RAE), which happens every few years, rates university departments according to the quality of their publications. The research group’s publications have been submitted as part of the submission of the University of Oxford Department of Primary Care, which consistently achieves the highest rating. It was one of only 5 top-rated departments of primary care in the country in the last RAE.
