Research Excellence in UK Anaesthesia (REUKA)
The aim of REUKA is to document the breadth and strength of excellence in UK anaesthesia research across the NHS and University Sectors.
Active anaesthetic researchers in the UK are encouraged to register with ResearcherID, an online scholarly research community which assigns a unique identifier to each researcher. This unique identifier can then be registered with the NIAA Research Resources Database facilitating systematic documentation of research outputs and citations, which in turn enables anonymous benchmarking against peers.
This data will allow the HSRC and NIAA to build up a database of active researchers and to anonymously document their output. This in turn will enable effective local, national and international lobbying on behalf of academic anaesthesia. It will also facilitate local lobbying by individuals and departments for support from universities and trusts.
We will provide six-monthly anonymous benchmarking against your peers within UK anaesthesia as well as periodic national anonymised reports documenting the activity of UK anaesthesia researchers. The reports will be circulated to contributing researchers and posted on this website.

Registration can be achieved through a two-step process: (see below for links)
STEP 1: Please register with ResearcherID and then follow the instructions to complete your own publications profile. This will provide you with a continuously updating personal citation report.
STEP 2: Please register your unique Researcher ID number onto the NIAA Research Resources Database.
The available data suggests that UK anaesthesia research has strength in depth and is internationally competitive (see HSRC Bulletin article, Research excellence in anaesthesia, January 2012). HSRC Bulletin Article January 2012 (867 KB)
Please note: Neither the NIAA or the HSRC receive any direct or indirect support from ResearcherID or any associated parties in relation to this system.
