Scientific Publications

Scientific Publications

The experts in our network have had numerous papers published in peer-reviewed academic and scientific journals relating to the Expertise Areas covered by ERN eUROGEN. Publications are grouped below according to their publication date. Those marked with [*] represent publications involving at least two ERN eUROGEN members from at least two different EU/EEA Member States (i.e., those which are eligible for reporting to the European Commission).

Information for clinicians/researchers in our network

When reporting papers as deliverables to the European Commission (EC), we can only include publications that:

  1. are in PubMed-accredited scientific journals,
  2. involve as major contributors at least two healthcare providers (HCPs) from two different Member States within the ERN, and
  3. include an explicit acknowledgement or reference to ERN eUROGEN’s involvement e.g., “This work is generated within the European Reference Network for Rare Urogenital Diseases and Complex Conditions (ERN eUROGEN)” or “This work is supported by the ERN for Rare Urogenital Diseases and Complex Conditions (ERN eUROGEN)”. If the support is not financial, “(non-financially)” can be added in brackets after the word “supported” for additional clarification.
