Mapping of Danish neuroscience research

In early 2016, Lundbeckfonden’s board of directors decided on a number of activities with the ambition to contribute to making Denmark the world’s strongest brain research nation.

Delivering on such an ambition requires a solid starting point, based on a deep insight into the current strengths of Danish brain research.

The most robust method for measuring research strength is bibliometric (also known as scientometric) analysis whereby the impact of the research output is evaluated using indices derived from information on where scientific articles are published (i.e. in which scientific journals) and how often the scientific articles are cited by authors of other scientific articles.

Therefore, Lundbeckfonden decided to conduct a scientometric analysis of Danish brain research (n this report referred to as neuroscience research encompassing basic and clinical research including psychiatry) describing the standing of Danish brain research and how this field has developed over the past 10 years (2005-2015) compared to seven other countries; USA, Canada, the Netherlands, UK, Germany, Switzerland and Sweden.
