New report on stem cell research

Stem Cell Research: Trends and  Perspectives on the Evolving International Landscape presents a comprehensive analysis of the growth and development of the stem cell field, with particular focus on embryonic stem (ES) cell and induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cell research outputs. The report was jointly prepared by Elsevier, Kyoto University’s Institute for Integrated Cell-Material Sciences (iCeMS) and EuroStemCell, and will be discussed on 6 December 2013 at the World Stem Cell Summit in San Diego.

The study reviewed the research output, citation impact and collaboration behaviour of leading nations, as well as assessing international differences in focus and growth, in order to provide a broad and transparent data driven view of the field.  It combines a comprehensive publication analysis from Elsevier’s Scopus – the largest scientific abstract and citation database – together with scientists’ and other stakeholders’ views on current progress and future expectations of the field.
