The top 10 trending research topics
Today is our birthday – The Oxford Review is 1-year-old so I thought I would look at the numbers and list the top 10 research topics from 2016/17.
- Our algorithms have searched through over 1.2 million peer-reviewed research papers published over 7,871 research journals contained in 847 research databases in 2016
- We have physically read and considered 4,561 research papers
- Our practitioners chose 260 research studies to fully review based on usefulness, their ability to be actionable and practical and their interest to our members
- Out of the 260 papers turned into briefings for our members we have produced
- 12 Copies of The Oxford Review containing 156 research briefings
- 104 weekly Research Briefings
- 12 Research video briefings
- 5 Infographics
- and Completed 15 special reports for organisations and businesses including Danone, The State Department, The NHS, 2 police forces, 2 Banks, 1 retail store, 3 multinationals and 7 repeat orders for different topics
- David has been asked to talk at 43 conferences and has actually managed to do 21 of these including the UK Police Chiefs Conference and the British Academy where his talk was voted one of the top 3 most interesting talks.
- Social media
- We have also posted 8,760 research based tweets,
- 156 Facebook posts
- 82 LinkedIn posts and
- 96 blog posts!
- We have also received 92 emails of appreciation and 0 email of complaint
- And redesigned our website three times and (we estimate) written over 14,000 emails!
- We have also redesigned The Oxford Review twice and
- The Research Briefings 3 times to make them even quicker and easier to assimilate and more useful
- We have gone out, interviewed and listened to 304 people about the design of the Oxford Review in a continual effort to make them better, quicker and more and more useful.

Thanks for the topics. I wanted ask something related to research articles. Can someone publish research articles independently and without having a PhD?
The short answer is yes. Peer reviewed journals only look at the quality of the research not the qualifications of the researcher.
I hope this helps
