PhysioNet-Related Publications

The new PhysioNet website is available at: We welcome your feedback.

You can find thousands of publications that cite or mention PhysioNet or its major components using this Google Scholar search. (This search excludes most publications authored or coauthored by investigators affiliated with PhysioNet; for a search that includes those publications, try this link instead.)

In this section of PhysioNet, you will find pointers to a few of these papers that have made use of data or software available from PhysioNet. In some cases, the authors of these papers have contributed the data or software on which their studies are based to PhysioBank and PhysioToolkit. If you make use of these materials, include a citation of the original publication(s) in which they were described, as given below.

If you have data or software that may be of interest to other users of PhysioNet, and a related publication, please consider contributing a copy of your publication and its supporting data or software to the Publications pages. We also encourage contributions of publications that make use of existing PhysioBank data or PhysioToolkit software. Such contributions can be fully indexed on PhysioNet, making it easier for interested readers to find them.

These listings also include links to external sites where it is possible to read abstracts (and in some cases, full texts) of PhysioNet-related publications that are not available here. The texts of these publications are not indexed here; following a "Link to:" any of them will open the text in another browser window. In some cases, access to publications on external sites may be restricted to subscribers; PhysioNet has no control over this. Publishers of external sites may move or remove materials on their sites; please let us know if you discover a broken link to an external site.

Please note that this list is not limited to publications from the Research Resource for Complex Physiologic Signals. A more extensive list of recent publications by investigators affiliated with the Resource is available here.
