In the poorly studied field of physician suicide, various fac-tors can contribute to misinformation or information distor-tion, which in turn can influence evidence-based policies and prevention of suicide in this unique population. Here, we report on the use of nanopublications as a scientific publishing approach to establish a citation network of claims drawn from a variety of media concerning the rate of suicide of US physicians. Our work integrates these vari-ous claims and enables the verification of non-authoritative assertions, thereby better equipping researchers and to advance evidence-based knowledge and make informed statements in the advocacy of physician suicide prevention.
