Publication date: 2009
A free, online database of current HSR projects. HSRProj contains descriptions on more than 6,000 ongoing health services research projects funded by government and state agencies, foundations, and private organizations.
The HSRProj (Health Services Research Projects in Progress) database provides information about grants and contracts in health services research that are still in progress. Search HSRProj to find research in the pipeline.
Accessible for free, HSRProj is a database of ongoing health services research. It is also accessible as part of the "Other Collections" category of resources in the National Library of Medicine (NLM) Internet Gateway. The National Information Center on Health Services Research and Health Care Technology (NICHSR) coordinates its continued development for NLM.
Records include both grants and contracts awarded by major public and private funding agencies and foundations. Individuals can retrieve names of organizations that are either conducting or sponsoring research, principal investigator contact information, beginning and end dates of a project, and information about study design and methodology.
Records are indexed with NLM’s Medical Subject Headings (MeSH®). Project abstracts are included whenever possible.
By listing ongoing and recently completed projects, HSRProj can provide researchers and policymakers with a vital link to information that is not readily available from other sources.
HSRProj is a joint effort of the AcademyHealth and the Cecil G. Sheps Center at the University of North Carolina with funding from the NLM. The National Information Center on Health Services Research and Health Care Technology (NICHSR) coordinates its continued development for NLM.
