One way to disseminate knowledge gained from research is to publish results in peer-reviewed journals. Acceptance by these journals signifies the research methods and interpretation of results are sound and are approved by other researchers in the field. Publishing research in peer-reviewed journals also allows other members of the scientific community an opportunity to verify your results. This process of reproducing results is the foundation of respected scientific work. These journals are accessible to researchers and the public and considered a credible source of information. Below are journal publications of previous work completed by the Community Health Resource Center.
