AMR publications have doubled in a decade – but what are our next steps?

  25 September 2020

The AMR Research field has grown substantially in recent years, thanks to a series of funding awards from the UK Research Councils, JPIAMR, NIHR and others. A key characteristic of calls has been the disciplinary breadth drawn upon to characterise and address the complexity of AMR as a problem that spans disciplines and sectors. We are now at a key juncture where findings from these research investments are becoming available. Publications are abounding in high quality disciplinary specific and mainstream public health journals. A quick search for ‘antimicrobial resistance’ on of scholarly literature between 2010-2020 shows the number of articles published annually is set to have doubled. An important challenge now exists for us in the AMR research community to make sense of these findings. How can we bring together and learn from this growing volume of diverse research findings and collectively decide on next steps?
