Journals Library


The NIHR Journals Library website provides access to information about research funded by the National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR). 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 Journals Library comprises a suite of six open access peer-reviewed journals reporting results from a range of health research areas. Each publication also provides a direct link to the relevant details, documents and outputs of its corresponding  research project on the NIHR Funding and Awards website.

We want to:

  • Create a thread from the research start to its finish that builds over time
  • Provide a transparent record of the research carried out
  • Ensure that research can be more easily reproduced

Other NIHR Research

As well as publishing full accounts of research funded through NIHR programmes in the NIHR Journals Library, we also produce research through other NIHR initiatives. This research follows varying editorial, production and publication models, which differ to NIHR Journals Library articles, and is currently produced from a number of NIHR sources.
