Papers arising from MRC-supported research have been shown to have a significantly higher citation impact than papers resulting from other UK health-related or biological sciences related research. Indeed, papers which have arisen from MRC-supported research have over twice the world average citation impact.

MRC-funded research also generates a greater percentage of highly-cited papers than other UK clinical/health and medically-related research and UK biological sciences research (13 per cent compared to 5.9 and 6.7 per cent respectively) Also, only four per cent of MRC papers published between 2006 and 2011 remain uncited in 2012, compared to 12 per cent of papers generated by other UK clinical/health and medically-related research and 8 per cent of papers generated by UK biological sciences research.
