Preresidency publication record and its association with publishing during paediatric residency



Preresidency publication record and its association with publishing during paediatric residency



Paediatrics and Child Health 21(4): 187-190



To determine whether an association exists between the publication of journal articles before and during paediatrics residency. A retrospective search of PubMed was conducted for publications by all 567 Canadian paediatricians certified between 2009 and 2012, inclusive. Paediatricians were separated into groups based on the number of articles published preresidency (0 or ≥1) and during residency (0 or ≥1). The methodology was validated using a group of local paediatricians who were contacted to verify whether their publications were identified accurately. A total of 160 of 567 (28%) certified paediatricians had preresidency publications; of these, 93 (58%) subsequently published during their residency period. Among the remaining 407 (72%) paediatricians without preresidency publications, 129 (32%) published during residency. The association between publication before and during paediatric residency was statistically significant (OR 2.98 [95% CI 2.04 to 4.36]; P<0.001). Results from the validation analysis suggested the methodology correctly identified pre- and during residency publication status with 87% and 90% accuracy, respectively. Individuals with previous publications were more likely to publish as residents; however, 42% of individuals with pre-residency publications did not publish as residents. Residency selection committees may find these data helpful in assessing the publication potential of their applicants. In addition, this information may assist in building more targeted and individualized research curricula within residency programs. Déterminer s’il y a un lien entre la publication d’articles scientifiques avant et pendant la résidence en pédiatrie. Dans PubMed, les chercheurs ont réalisé une recherche rétrospective des publications sur les 567 pédiatres canadiens certifiés entre 2009 et 2012, inclusivement. Ils ont séparé les pédiatres en plusieurs groupes, selon le nombre d’articles publiés avant la résidence (0 ou au moins 1) et pendant la résidence (0 ou au moins 1). Pour valider leur méthodologie, ils ont pris contact avec un groupe de pédiatres locaux et vérifié si les publications avaient été correctement identifiées. Au total, 160 de 567 pédiatres certifiés (28 %) ont publié avant leur résidence. De ce nombre, 93 (58 %) ont également publié pendant leur résidence. Chez les 407 pédiatres (72 %) qui n’ont pas publié avant leur résidence, 129 (32 %) l’ont fait pendant leur résidence. L’association entre les publications avant et pendant la résidence en pédiatrie était statistiquement significative (RC 2,98 [95 % IC 2,04 à 4,36]; P<0,001). Selon les résultats de l’analyse de validation, la méthodologie a permis de repérer correctement les publications effectuées avant et pendant la résidence, dans une proportion de 87 % et de 90 %, respectivement. Les personnes qui avaient déjà publié étaient plus susceptibles de publier pendant leur résidence, même si 42 % d’entre elles ne l’ont pas fait. Les comités de sélection de résidents pourraient trouver ces données utiles pour évaluer le potentiel de publication de leurs candidats. En outre, l’information pourrait contribuer à la création de cursus de recherche plus ciblés et plus personnalisés dans les programmes de résidence.
