The resources vary, including newspaper articles, journal articles, books and book chapters, conference and funding opportunities, and websites, to name a few. Sources such as Implementation Science, British Medical Journal, Journal of Rural Health, Translational Behavioral Medicine, and the New York Times are featured. The Resource Library is updated monthly to include new publications and other opportunities.

How are the search results generated?

Search results are based on the criteria you as the user choose. You can start a search by selecting at least one resource type. To narrow your search, choose multiple resource types, narrow the date range, and/or enter one or multiple keywords. Once you have entered your criteria, select the Search button.

The search will list your results by resource type and year. If you entered a keyword, that word will be in the title, abstract, resource type, or author. It is recommended to have at least one keyword in your search to narrow your results.
