Can I Find Information about Research in Progress?

Posted by on March 20th, 2018 Posted in: Blog, NLM Resources, Training


What if I told you there’s a way to search for information about research that’s in progress before results are available in published format?  I know. I know. You must be thinking…there’s no way!

But, there is!

Enter the National Library of Medicine’s Health Services Research Projects in Progress (HSRProj) database.

HSRProj houses more than 32,000 ongoing and recently completed health services, system, and policy research projects and has added 1,000 new projects since the start of 2018.

Interested in learning more? You can visit the HSRProj website or consider taking NNLM’s 2-hour self-paced course Online Resources to Support Evidence-Based Practice on Population Health: An introduction to MedlinePlus, PubMed, and HSRproj. The course includes a tutorial on HSRProj and how it ties into MedlinePlus and PubMed!
