Abstract

This editorial talks about Bioresources (for example, biobanks, databases and bioinformatics tools) and why these need to be easily accessible to facilitate advancement of research. The authors comment on the proposition of a Bioresource Research Impact Factor (BRIF), which would promotethe sharing of bioresources by creating a link between their initiators or implementers and the impact of the scientific research using them.
