Fiscal Year 2018 Extramural Research Program Highlights

Selected outputs, outcomes, and accomplishments of NIOSH-funded extramural research during FY2018 are described in this section. The outputs include publications, reports, conference proceedings, presentations/posters, databases, tools, methods, guidelines, recommendations, education and training materials, inventions, and patents. From October 1, 2017, to September 30, 2018, NIOSH-funded extramural research led to 602 peer-reviewed publications. Researchers published their NIOSH-funded studies in an array of journals related to occupational safety and health. Most often, they published in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine (n=42), followed by the Annals of Work Exposures and Health (n=24), the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Hygiene (n=21), and the Journal of Agromedicine (n=20). We collected publications by extramural researchers from principal investigator reports to NIOSH, the NIH Reporter database, the NIOSHTIC-2 database, and the PubMed database.
