Cathy Jordan, PhD, LP, Editor, CES4Health.info led an educational webinar entitled CES4Health.info: A tool for enhancing the impact of community-engaged scholarship. 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products -- such as training manuals, policy briefs, websites, documentaries and instructional DVDs -- are usually not peer-reviewed, published or disseminated widely.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.info 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.
Learning Objectives: By the end of the session, participants 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.
