 Research Quality Advisory


The Research Quality Advisory (RQA) is a pilot initiative designed to foster the scholarship and education in biomedical sciences. Dr. Tmanova initiated the Research Quality initiative in 2017 to enhance the quality of scientific inquiry, education, and academic publication. 

Research Quality is an analysis of academic and medical publications using the bibliometric and scientometric to assess the research impact and develop the scientific research and policy. Analysis of academic and medical publications helps and leads to:

  • understand the academic and scientific development, influence, and research impact of biomedical research.
  • the enhancement of the ethical research and practice in healthcare
  • reduction of medical and environment adverse effects, and environmental changes impacting human health.


RQ offers quality advisory to evaluate the value of scientific medical research and quality of research publication using scientometric methodology to determine the research, policy, and research impact to enhance the scientific discovery in healthcare. 

RQA adds publication quality value by enhancing the academic publication and education through following: 

  • Design the methodology to determine the value of scholarly and scholar's medical research
  • Analyze the research productivity, collaboration, research topics, citation impact, and other associated metrics of published research
  • Assess and communicate the value of academic publication and biomedical research 
  • Information guidance on identification of prospective scientific specialty-specific topics, identify emerging research topics, and evaluate research trends  
  • Information guidance on quality and ethics of scientific publication
  • Guidance on publication metric and discoverability of scientific publications
  • Engage in planning educational curriculum to enhance the education, collaboration, and mentorship

For conducting quality analysis of published biomedical research, please submit the request at the Research Quality Request. If you have questions about the research quality of published research, please contact Research Quality analyst, Dr. Tmanova.
