International Health Students and Faculty on Health Policy and Planning Top 10 Lists
Students, alumni and faculty from the Health Systems Program of the Department of International Health were lead or contributing authors of four articles in Health Policy and Planning’s 2017 top 10 most cited and most accessed lists.
The International Health articles covered a range of research topics, including intersectionality in health systems research, power in health policy and systems, community engagement in implementation research, and gender analysis in health systems research.
Students and alumni led the way in research, serving as first author in three out of the four articles. (All alumni were students at the time the studies were written.) “It is great to see the Health Systems Program contribute so strongly to these highly cited and popular resources, and particularly to see younger, emerging researchers taking the lead,” states Dr. Sara Bennett, professor in International Health and one of the contributing authors.
The 10 most cited list was compiled using data from 2015 – 2017. The most accessed articles are the articles from 2016 – 2018 with the highest Altmetric score, which measures the amount of attention received in outlets such as blogs, policy documents, tweets and Google+ posts and is used to measure how research has influenced health policy.
Top 10 cited and accessed articles with contributing International Health faculty and students are listed below. Congratulations to all the International Health authors.
