Indicators of Biomedical Research Impact: The Becker Model

A revised version of the Becker Model is available. The Becker Model is a list of indicators of biomedical research impact and outcomes based on retrospective review of bench and clinical research trials, review of the literature for examples of health outcomes and interviews with investigators. It also includes examples of impact/influence metrics based on publication data. The Becker Model can be used to help with reports. Examples are:

  • Tenure/Promotion
  • Grant Reporting
  • Individual Performance Review
  • Departmental Performance Review
  • Administrative/University Reporting
  • Benchmarking
  • Reporting to the Community of Research Findings

Suggestions are most welcome. Please send them to the post author.
