Highlights from our list of MSK-Authored COVID-19 Publications

In April 2020, we started tracking MSK COVID-19 related publications looking to quickly highlight any research, guidelines, perspective, or commentaries about the pandemic  authored by our MSK staff. The list has now grown to include 429 publications, 214 of which are from this year alone. 

Here are some highlights from those works published in 2021 based on their Altmetric score, which tracks the engagement of a publication online through its mentions in news stories, policy documents, blogs, tweets, and other social media.

New Advanced Practice Providers Group Added to Synapse

A new custom group was created to track the publications of MSK’s Advanced Practice Providers. APP’s are highly trained nurse practitioners(NPs), physicians assistants(PAs), and certified registered nurse anesthetists(CRNAs) that are an integral part of the healthcare experience at MSK.

Groups in Synapse pull the publications of selected author profiles into a single collection, allowing you to view and track the research coming out of our various departments and services. Administrators and authors can use the groups to create bibliographies for grant applications and annual reports, as well as providing an easy way to highlight your groups publications via the custom Synapse group URL. 

For more information, or to start your own Synapse Group, please contact Jeanine McSweeney.
