Andrea M. Ketchum has published "The Research Life Cycle and the Health Sciences Librarian: Responding to Change in Scholarly Communication" in the Journal of the Medical Library Association.
Here's an excerpt:
With so many areas within the librarian’s scope of expertise, it is not surprising that some medical libraries employ research life cycle analysis for strategic planning. Using a localized model, librarians can map resources and services to research tasks or needs specific to their institutions, highlighting the capabilities of their librarians to better attract and serve researchers. . . .
The clinical research life cycle, however, is more complex. A model must incorporate additional components for clinical studies and account for longer time frames, especially for multifaceted clinical trials or multicenter studies.
