CES4Health: A Tool for Enhancing the Impact of Community-Engaged Scholarship

CES4Health Editor gave this presentation as part of the Health Wisconsin Partnership Program's educational webinar series.  Peer-reviewed journal articles are essential for communicating the results of scholarship to academic audiences. However, they are not sufficient for disseminating the results of scholarship developed through community-university partnerships related to teaching, research or knowledge mobilization efforts. Community-engaged scholarship (CES) requires diverse products for dissemination to reach and benefit community members, practitioners and policymakers. These products – such as training manuals, policy briefs, websites, documentaries and instructional DVDs – are usually not peer-reviewed, published or disseminated widely. As a result, their application to communities beyond the one with which they were created is often limited, as is their usefulness in the review, promotion and tenure process.

CES4Health directly addresses these challenges by providing an online mechanism for peer-reviewing, publishing and disseminating diverse products of CES conducted across the globe. In this session, the CES4Health.info editor will (a) describe how and why CES4Health.info was developed; (b) briefly explain the submission and peer review processes and criteria; (c) briefly share user, author and reviewer feedback; and (d) discuss strategies for creating innovative products of CES and packaging them appropriately for submission to CES4Health.info, and (e) lead participants on a virtual tour of the CES4Health site.

By the end of the webinar, viewers will be able to:

  • Consider the appropriateness of CES4Health.info as a possible publication outlet for their products
  • Understand the submission and peer review processes used in CES4Health.info
  • Be able to articulate the benefits of publishing in CES4Health.info in terms of community impact and utility to academic partners

This sixth call in CCPH's educational conference call series "Building Community Capacity for Research," was entitled "The National Community Committee of the CDC Prevention Research Centers Program: Impacting Research Policy & Practice at Local & National Levels."

The call focused on the history, impact and lessons learned of the National Community Committee, a unique and important committee of the CDC Prevention Research Centers (PRC) Program. The NCC is a group of action-oriented people from communities around the country who arepartners in CDC's PRC Program. Since its origins in the late 1990s, the NCC has evolved from a loosely formed advisory body into a catalyst for changing the way that researchers and community members interact to influence practice and policy.

During the call, 4 NCC members presented the story of the NCC, its evolution over time, and examples of how community committees have shaped the conduct and outcomes of prevention research at local and national levels. Call participants learned how community committees or boards can be more than "advisory", and how when reps of these community committees come together, they can support each other in meaningful ways and have a critical voice in the overall structure of a federal grant program.
