Indicateurs SIGAPS : quels sont les profils des publications des établissements de santé français ?

Abstract : Research activity funding in French hospitals is partly based on the number of publications, while taking also into account author position (first, second, third, second-to-last, last, investigator list, and Other) and journal category (A being the highest category followed by B, C, D, E, and NC). Over the 2004-2014 decade, the profile and the evolution of publications for the six existing types of hospital, i.e public teaching hospital, cancer centre, public non-teaching hospital, not-for-profit private hospital, military hospital, and for-profit private hospital were analysed. Among a total of 192 886 publications analysed, the most frequent category was B for cancer centres, whereas this was E in the other types. The first position was the most frequent for public teaching hospitals and the military hospital, whereas the Other position was the most frequent for the other types. The author position indicated that all types of hospital are involved in research projects. Public non-teaching hospitals, not-for-profit private hospitals, for-profit private hospitals, and cancer centres collaborated with other institutions; cancer centres were often distinguished by publishing in high-category journals. Over the same period, for the public teaching hospitals, means, Spearman correlation coefficients and Pearson regression lines were calculated between the following variables from 2004 to 2014 per full time equivalent (FTE) physicians: the number of publications, the number of hospital stays, the number of FTE university hospital practitioners, and finally the number of residents. The mean per FTE physicians was 0.73 publications, 235.8 hospital stays, and 0.63 residents. The correlations between these three variables two by two were weak. The correlations between the proportion of university hospital practitioners and number of publications per FTE physicians, number of residents per FTE physicians, AB categories publications per FTE physicians, or first and last authors’ publications per FTE physicians was strong. All French hospitals are involved into research activities but with different patterns. Among them, public teaching hospitals have three missions: research, care and teaching. Each of them had different patterns in term of care, teaching, and research activities. None was above the mean for all these 3 activities. Nine had at least 2 of the 3 missions with above-average scores
