Over the years, many of us submit abstracts and present posters at CPNP and other professional meetings. Our goal is to share our scientific findings with our colleagues and we often start this process with a poster presentation with the intention of using a poster/abstract as a stepping stone towards publishing a manuscript. Unfortunately, time begins to slip away, responsibilities add up, new projects begin, and time to write and submit the manuscript for publication disappears.

Madelyn Wessel, University of Virginia, has compiled an excellent list of copyright resources available on the web, and she has given us permission to redistribute it to CPNP members. As you work with existing research and generate your own copyrighted content, it is important to understand how it works.
One essential copyright issue is that having access to a document does not mean the same thing as having unrestricted permission to reuse or redistribute.

This document is meant to assist CPNP members who are interested in research and scholarly activity, particularly those with less experience in such activities. It may also be of use to more experienced investigators who are interested in enhancing their productivity through working with others or assisting in the development of new investigators.

Research Portfolio Online Reporting Tool Expenditures and Results (RePORTER) is a searchable database of federally funded biomedical research projects conducted at universities, hospitals, and other research institutions. The database, maintained by the Office of Extramural Research at the National Institutes of Health, includes projects funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services (SAMHSA), Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDCP), Agency for Health Care Research and Quality (AHRQ), and Office of Assistant Secretary of Health (OASH). Users, including the public, can use the RePORTER interface to search for scientific concepts, emerging trends and techniques, or identify specific projects and/or investigators.
