Publications Database

Welcome to the new Schulich Peer-Reviewed Publication Database!

The database is currently in beta-testing and will be updated with more features as time goes on. In the meantime, stakeholders are free to explore our faculty’s numerous works. The left-hand panel affords the ability to search by the following:

  • Faculty Member’s Name;
  • Area of Expertise;
  • Whether the Publication is Open-Access (free for public download);
  • Journal Name; and
  • Date Range.

At present, the database covers publications from 2012 to 2020, but will extend further back in the future. In addition to listing publications, the database includes two types of impact metrics: Altmetrics and Plum. The database will be updated annually with most recent publications from our faculty.

If you have any questions or input, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Abstract Objective: To examine whether regional practice patterns impact racial/ethnic differences in intensity of end‐of‐life care for cancer decedents. Data Sources The linked Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER)‐Medicare database. Study Design: We classified hospital referral regions (HRRs) based on mean 6‐month end‐of‐life care expenditures, which represented regional practice patterns. Using hierarchical generalized linear models, we examined racial/ethnic differences in the intensity of end‐of‐life care across levels of HRR expenditures. Principal Findings: There was greater variation in intensity of end‐of‐life care among Hispanics, Asians, and whites in high‐expenditure HRRs than in low‐expenditure HRRs. Conclusions Local practice patterns may influence racial/ethnic differences in end‐of‐life care.
