Abstract :

NPC POPLINE is a unique online bibliographic database including all types of research related to population and reproductive health that was conducted in Egypt during the period 2005 to 2015. It consists of bibliographic citations and abstracts to all types of publications including peer reviewed journal articles, scientific conference abstracts and other technical, and programmatic publications as well as theses from all the Egyptian universities, unpublished documents and project reports (gray literature). The database is planned to be updated annually. The ultimate goal of the database is to provide a free online resource for program managers, policy makers, and service providers and others to make critical decisions based on evidence based research. This presentation provides the description of the development, scope, geographic coverage, services of the NPC POPLINE as well as how it target all types of published and unpublished population and reproductive health research conducted in Egypt which covers all the objectives of the first phase of the study. The next phase will include the development of a set of bibliometric indicators to monitor the trend of the population and reproductive health research in Egypt through quantitative and qualitative analysis of the content of the database.
