Frequently Asked Questions
How does the Resource Center Work?

Think of the Resource Center as a library stocked with information added by its members. Each registered user has the opportunity to add content or make comments describing his or her experiences with interprofessional resources. Just like writing a review of a product online, members are encouraged to discuss a resource’s usefulness, practical application, benefits and even shortcomings (civil, constructive criticism only, please.) It is searchable by subject, resource type and keyword as well as by individual areas of interest or expertise.

What can I find in the Resource Center?

It’s a comprehensive hub for interprofessional practice and education-related content – ranging from information about programs to articles, archived webinars and much more. We use submitted, peer-reviewed and unpublished literature to build collections that are catalogued by topic, making it easier for people to find information applicable to their needs and interests.

Some of the most popular resources include:

  • Previously-published journal articles
  • Reports from conferences and commissioned papers
  • Measurement instruments and other assessment tools
  • White papers, videos, presentation slides, recorded webinars, audio recordings, case studies and book chapters
  • Learning tools, materials, curricula and much more

If there is something missing, just ask. We’ll do our best to track it down.

Who can contribute to the Resource Center?

Anyone with a registered account can add content and comment on existing content.

What about copyright and intellectual property?

Because the Resource Center is freely available to anyone, all content uploaded to the site must be copyright compliant. If you own the copyright to your work and want to make it openly available, that’s great – the Resource Center will provide a search-engine-optimized access point for your content.

If the copyright is owned by someone else (e.g. a publisher), you’ll need to obtain permission from the copyright holder before uploading that content. An alternate strategy for copyright-protected content previously published in scholarly journals is to link to the PubMed version of the article. Although not all articles indexed by PubMed are open access, community members with institutional subscriptions to restricted content will have access, and those without subscriptions will be offered the option to buy or “rent” the content from the publisher. Even so, you should be sure to obtain all copyright permissions before uploading any content to the site.

Is content on the site moderated?

Yes. The Resource Center is actively reviewed by National Center staff and community moderators to ensure all content posted to the site is appropriate.

Does the Resource Center contain only emerging research?

No. The Resource Center offers a home to both peer-reviewed and grey literature allowing information to be shared freely among users. This allows the National Center to chronicle the 50-year history of interprofessional practice and education, by providing a unique perspective to trends through access to seminal works that have never been digitally available before.
