Excerpt from paper....
One criterion on which the guidelines are appraised is the "identification
and interpretation of evidence." Accordingly, a well developed guideline
would include a comprehensive bibliography of publications cited therein.
We scanned these bibliographic details onto a bespoke database. After we
standardised the bibliographic data, we looked up all papers on the Science
Citation Index and in libraries to add the addresses of the authors and any
missing information such as paper titles, volume numbers, etc. "

Objectives To develop a methodology for evaluating the impact of
research on health care, and to characterize the papers cited on clinical
Design The bibliographic details of the papers cited in 15
clinical guidelines, developed in and for the United Kingdom, were collated
and analysed with applied bibliometric techniques.
Results The median age of papers cited in clinical guidelines was
eight years; most papers were published by authors living in either the
United States (36%) or the United Kingdom (25%)-this is two and a half times
more than expected as about 10% of all biomedical outputs are published in
the United Kingdom; and clinical guidelines do not cite basic research
Conclusion Analysis of the evidence base of clinical guidelines may be
one way of tracking the flow of knowledge from the laboratory to the clinic.
Moreover, such analysis provides a useful, clinically relevant method for
evaluating research outcomes and different strategies in research and
