Introduction to Research and Scholarly Activities in Psychiatry at OHSU

Sharing knowledge you have gained is a lifelong activity for health professionals. The OHSU Library is here to support you as you prepare to present or publish on sentinel cases, quality improvement projects, research, or other scholarly activities wherever you are learning and practicing. This guide introduces questions and related resources that you will likely navigate as you plan to share your knowledge.

Please let us know if you have questions that are not addressed by this guide--we are happy to meet with you or engage others who can help us address your questions or improve the guide.
