Sample size and characterization

The sample used in this study consisted of the list of authors of HCPs affiliated with at least one research organization in Spain. Subsequently, this list was normalized by disambiguating the publications mixed up in namesakes and unifying their variants. During this process the nicknames used by the authors to sign their publications were replaced for their full name.
