EASE/BRIF workshop: Editors as promoters of good practices in bioresource research
Why this workshop. A collaboration between a research group concerned with bioresources and a group of journal editors led to the development of a guideline for reporting bioresource use in research articles. The guideline named “CoBRA: Citation of BioResources in journal Articles” has been published in BMC Medicine in February 2015. Go to article.
The guideline is receiving much interest from the research community as you can see from Altmetrics figures.
EASE provided major support in the development of the CoBRA guideline which provides a standard citation of bioresouces to help in the creation of a system for evaluation of bioresource-based research impact. Based on such positive collaboration between EASE and the BRIF (Bioresource Research Impact Factor) initiative, we will organize a workshop to discuss the role of journal editors to promote best practices in research.
