The BRIF (Bioresource Research Impact Factor) as a tool for improving bioresource sharing in biomedical research

"The central aim of the BRIF (Bioresource Research Impact Factor) initiative is to construct a quantitative parameter to evaluate bioresources, modeled to some degree on the Journal Impact Factor (JIF), and to provide guidance and methodology for optimizing recognition of bioresources, their use and their sharing at international level."
