Journals Library

Publication types

The NIHR Journals Library has now introduced a new publication model, developing its innovative, threaded approach to making full accounts of NIHR-funded research available to evidence-users in a freely accessible, timely way. Most authors will be expected to follow this threaded publication approach.

However, there are some exceptions to this and you should ensure that you follow the applicable guidance for your research.

In some circumstances it may be more appropriate for your award to be reported on as a single Extended Research Article. However, you should only do so following consultation with the NIHR Journals Library Editorial Office. If you are unsure, please contact:

Authors of reports for the Programme Grants for Applied Research (PGfAR) programme should read the PGfAR guidance first.

Authors of Technology Assessment Reports (TARs) should read the TARs guidance first.
