NLM Grant for Scholarly Works in Biomedicine and Health
The National Library of Medicine (NLM) awards Grants for Scholarly Works in Biomedicine and Health for the preparation of book-length manuscripts and other scholarly works of value to U.S. health professionals, public health officials, biomedical researchers, and historians of the health sciences. Grants are awarded for major critical reviews, state-of-the-art summaries, historical studies, and other useful organizations of knowledge in clinical medicine, public health, biomedical research, and the informatics/information sciences relating to them. The scholarly work may be prepared for publication in print or electronic media, or both.
NLM Grants for Scholarly Works can be used to support several types of scholarly projects, including but not limited to:
- Scholarly works in the history or philosophy of medicine, public health and the life sciences, the development of medical research and health services, bioethics, and studies on the interrelationship of medicine and society
- Scholarly works in the history or philosophy of biomedical informatics, computational biology, health information sciences, health communications, or health sciences librarianship
- Analytical and comprehensive critical reviews which identify the present status of research and practice in various health-related fields, addressing advances which have been made, problems requiring examination, and emerging trends
Researchers are encouraged to explore the depth and breadth of NLM’s historical collections, which include materials on medical informatics and medical librarianship, veterinary medicine, homeopathy and alternative medicine, nursing and midwifery, modern genetics, mental health and human psychosocial development, tropical medicine and epidemiology, acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, war and medicine, and many other topics.
