Faculty research support

Information Service's primary mission is to act as a first-stop reference for faculty seeking specialized research tools.

PubMed Central. Information Services personnel will upload MPRC scholar articles to PubMed Central and manage compliance as needed.

Working Papers Program. We actively seek out interdisciplinary working papers from MPRC Faculty Associates and upload them to our Population Working Papers repository.

Research tools. We maintain lists of population-related journals and provides links to researchers looking for back issues or seeking submission guidelines.

Multi-media aids / data-viz. Our personnel are trained and equipped to assist in the devlopment of multimedia and data visualization products to aid faculty in their job of communicating their findings in the most effective way possible.

Media relations. Staff generate press releases and coordinate media contacts related to research conducted on Center projects.

Front-end web services for MPRC faculty. Information Services regularly supports faculty requests for specialized web services to support research responsibilities. These services range from discrete subsites supporting a specific project, to conference coordination pages, to storage and access of datasets and papers for student or public access.
