The O’Neill report published in 2016 analyses different aspects and provides an extrapolation of the consequences. An increasing number of stakeholders are recognizing the fact that such a large and complex problem requires multiple approaches tackling it from different angles and perspectives – the One Health approach.

METRICS

PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
