BRIF (Bioresource Research Impact Factor) is an initiative to create a framework that allows setting up indicators for the use of bioresources and rewarding mechanisms. Bioresources are defined as collections of biological samples with associated data (medical/epidemiological, social), databases independent of physical samples or other collections of biomolecular and bioinformatics research tools.

In addition to BRIF, the CoBRA (Citing of Bioresources in Research Articles) guideline provides guidance for citing bioresources in academic literature: it specifies where and how to cite bioresources in each section of a research article.

Use the CoBRA checklist when writing a scientific article.
