Student, Resident, & Faculty Research Projects
Roseman University Librarians can assist with student, resident or faculty research projects in variety ways: as an advising resource or consultant who helps direct researchers in their search, or in the case of an extensive research project librarians can assist as a member of a research team.
Support for Research Projects
Listed below are a number of ways in which librarians can provide support for research projects:
*If a research team requests a librarian to become a member of a research team, the library requests that team leadership agree to the library’s MOU (Memorandum of Understanding) regarding authorship.
- Provide guidance with search terms, strategy, and database selection on a variety of literature searches including, but not limited to, program review, grant proposals, committee work and review articles.
- Advise researchers about the possible publication type of review articles (e.g. scoping review, systematic review, etc.) and thus the scope of the search needed.
- Provide guidance on relevant guidelines and standards for conducting, reporting, and appraising research.
- Provide training and support in bibliographic management software (e.g. EndNote, Zotero, etc.) to organize retrieved citations.
- Librarians will conduct some limited and exploratory searches for the researcher as appropriate.
- Acknowledgement of the librarian in any publication is appreciated
To support faculty and student research aims, the library can assist with evaluating different scholarly communication options.
Designated scholarly communication librarians will:
- Help evaluate journals on their impact factor or other related analytics
- Assist faculty and students with submitting research products into the eCommons at Roseman University (the university’s institutional repository).
- Assist faculty with setting up and managing their online researcher profiles such as an ORCID iD and/or Google Scholar Profile.
