Mergers and acquisitions, major drug patent expiries and an average drug development time of 10 to 15 years are leading to shrinking information centres and increased expectation of end user research.

However, conversely, current awareness and specialised industry research is the cornerstone of new drug development, potentially helping to drastically reduce the cost of drug development and its speed to market.

If information teams can redefine themselves as experts at the more complex and strategic end of their organisations' research needs they should be assured of their place for many years to come. 

What is it that pharma info teams get from Jinfo?

Jinfo's customers in the pharmaceutical, life sciences and STM sectors benefit from access to specific coverage of sources and technology products directly related to areas such as discovery, patents, visualisation tools and pharma content products. 

On top of that is the value piece - access to strategic articles and reports helping those responsible for managing and developing information services to take their teams forward. This includes our recent original research where we shed unique light on information services and provided the data, analysis and models to empower our customers to benchmark their own services against a competitor set. 

Here's just a sample of the original research, market landscapes, product reviews and articles available to Jinfo Subscribers:
