GBIF’s annual compilation of peer-reviewed papers that use data published through GBIF’s global infrastructure in scientific research.
The GBIF Science Review provides an annual snapshot of key research uses drawn from the Secretariat’s literature tracking programme. The peer-reviewed articles summarized in Review offer a partial but instructive view of the wide range of research investigations that are enhanced and supported by free and open access to biodiversity data from the GBIF network of Participants, nodes and publishers.

Types of SRC Review
The Scientific Review of Mental Health Practice applies the best tools of science and reason to objectively evaluate novel, controversial, and untested mental health claims. Our purview includes claims regarding the efficacy of psychotherapies and self-enhancement methods, the validity of assessment instruments, and the scientific evidence for psychiatric diagnoses. We will reject no claims out of hand or prior to scientific scrutiny, although we will subject all claims to careful investigation and analysis.
The Scientific Review of Mental Health Practice (SRMHP) is the only peer-reviewed journal devoted exclusively to distinguishing scientifically-supported claims from scientifically-unsupported claims in clinical psychology, psychiatry, social work, and allied disciplines.
