Many practitioners will undertake research at some point during their career or will focus on a specific area of medicine and may wish to share their views and experiences by informing other medical professionals of their findings. Having peer-reviewed publications can be very important for career progression and it is particularly encouraged for newly qualified doctors.

Scientific literature, in the form of text books, medical manuals, research papers and articles, can either be written by a single author or by a collaborative team, all of whom can be credited as an author.

In The PPR the practitioner can enter details of any publications they have authored or co-authored, demonstrating their expertise in their chosen field(s) of medicine.
