Health Services Research
The National Information Center on Health Services Research and Health Care Technology (NICHSR) is a part of the National Institutes of Health and the National Library of Medicine. Its mission is to improve the collection, storage, analysis, retrieval and dissemination of health services research. NICHSR works to ensure that important health services research (HSR) and public health information and tools are readily available to the HSR and public health communities.
NICHSR supports the HSR and public health communities through its portals, HSR Information Central and PHPartners.org, as well as its databases. Specifically, HSRInfo Central now includes a special HSR Topic Page on Domestic Violence, to assist researchers, policy makers and practitioners by identifying new and important datasets, guidelines, tools, news and links to PubMed searches and other resources; site is updated regularly. PHPartners.org is a similar web portal, targeted at the information needs of the public health workforce.
HSRProj is a database of HSR and public health projects funded by public and private organizations that enables users to learn what is in the research pipeline prior to publication, to see who is funding and conducting that research, and to examine how such research investments have changed over time. HSRR is a database describing instruments, datasets and software that are used in health services research. To foster reuse of useful resources, a PubMed search is included with the dataset or instrument description to show how the resource has been used or cited.

Intro text: PubMed Central (PMC) is a free archive of full-text, biomedical and life sciences journal articles at the U.S. National Institutes of Health’s National Library of Medicine (NIH/NLM). In keeping with NLM’s legislative mandate to collect and preserve the biomedical literature, PMC serves as a digital counterpart to NLM’s extensive print journal collection. Launched in February 2000, PMC was developed and is managed by NLM’s National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI).
Here is a list of journal articles on domestic violence that can be accessed through PMC. The articles detail research that explores the impact of domestic violence on well-being, the efficacy of prevention and response strategies, and ways to improve care for people in situations of abuse.
