Publicaciones Científicas

Home | Research & Innovation | Scientific Publications

Scientists normally display the results of their research in the form of articles for international scholarly journals. Prior to publication, the contents of these articles are strictly filtered and submitted to experts in the field for approval. It is a system that seeks to guarantee the accuracy and rigor of a key marker on the red line that separates science from pseudoscience, the latter having nothing comparable by way of quality control. The number of articles originating from a given research center and their “impact” — the number of times an article is cited by other scientists — is a significant indicator of excellence. Going by those exacting standards, it is a source of no little pride to see the CNIO acknowledged as one of the most outstanding cancer research centers in the entire world.

The year 2017 was a record setter, in which CNIO scientists saw 217 of their articles accepted for publication in prestigious journals. At least 44 of those articles registered an impact factor of 15 or higher, representing a sharp increase over previous years and a clear indication that we are on the right track.
