Online Information Resources
In an effort to encourage and expand the development and use of quality disability research, the NCDDR provides access to relevant online resources. These resources include existing providers such as the Campbell Collaboration (C2) and the Cochrane Collaboration.
The Campbell Library provides access to Campbell Reviews for researchers, policymakers, practitioners, and members of the public.
The NCDDR provided online access for NIDRR-funded researchers to The Cochrane Library. The Cochrane Collaboration produces and disseminates systematic reviews of healthcare interventions and promotes the search for evidence in the form of clinical trials and other studies of interventions.
NCDDR staff have developed a searchable Directory of Journals and Authors Guidelines to facilitate publication in the disability and rehabilitation research field.
NCDDR's FOCUS Technical Brief series addresses such concepts as appraising the quality of systematic reviews, sharing and building knowledge, having an impact with rehabilitation results, and translating knowledge from the research setting into real-world applications.
The Library of Knowledge Translation Resources (KT Library) is designed to provide information to NIDRR grantees and interested members of the public about a wide spectrum of knowledge translation and evidence-based resources. Offerings in the KT library include reporting checklists, evidence-based guidelines, online training in evidence-based research and systematic reviews, among other categories of information.
Developed to gather systematic reviews of research studies on disability and rehabilitation topics in one place, the NCDDR Registry of Systematic Reviews of Disability and Rehabilitation Research provides significant, germane resources to researchers, service providers, and persons with disabilities and their families.
The Reporting of Research resources from the NCDDR includes a listing of checklists.
Webcasts on knowledge translation topics are produced to enrich the awareness of and stimulate discussions regarding KT related concepts. Archived topics include overviews to systematic review procedures, effective outreach activities, and how to use The Cochrane Library.
