Seventeen years ago, Dr. Andrew Balas was the lead author of the landmark study on the transfer of research evidence from clinical trials to patient care.[1] The widely cited study estimated that it takes an average of 17 years to put new scientific evidence into practice. The future of healthcare knowledge will be built on data—genomic data, environmental sensor-generated data, electronic health records data, patient-generated data, research collected data. As the new NLM Director, Dr. Brennan observed. “The data originating from research projects is becoming as important as the answers those research projects are providing.”
Thus data collection, curation, preservation, and access have become increasingly important to clinical researchers as well as practitioners. The roles that publishers and librarians play in this data-driven world and how they might work together to facilitate faster delivery of applications into clinical research will be the focus of this presentation.

Attendees will be invited to answer questions on how our roles above plays into:
• Where we were 17 years ago and where we are today
• Data curation and preservation
• Evidence-based medicine in the digital world
• Clinical trial results in relation to the journal article
