Objectives of the study

  • To build a unique database containing the scientific publications concerning both animal health (all diseases in livestock animals) and animal welfare
  • To map the collaborations between European countries and research organisations, and to identify the major publication topics of those collaborations

Elaboration of an accurate bibliographic database in animal health and welfare

  • Establishing thematic terminologies in infectious and non-infectious diseases, animal welfare and animal species groups (Ruminants, Horses, Pigs, Rabbits, Poultry, Fishes, Bees)
  • Extraction of bibliographic records from Web of Science ® database (primary articles or reviews in English language)
  • Implementation of supplementary filters (inclusive and exclusive) to discard irrelevant neighbouring topics
  • Enrichment of the database with additional fields (pathogens groups, diseases groups, welfare components, animal species groups) and standardised organisation names

Final relevant and enriched database: 48 103 references published from 2005 to 2014 in Europe
