Fund Your Research, Get It Published

Two free online resources can help medical researchers and students, residents, graduate students, nurses and other healthcare professionals find funding and publishing opportunities.

ScanGrants™ lists grant announcements and funding sources offered by foundations, corporations, businesses, and not-for-profits. It is a good supplement to sites such as, which lists state and federal funding sources.

ScanGrants™ also includes a page on fellowships that currently has well over one hundred opportunities.

Currently, nearly 700 funding opportunities are listed. For example, one recent post highlights early career awards for residents, fellows, and new post-docs to fund projects related to children’s health.

ResearchRaven™ includes professional conferences and calls for papers and posters. It currently lists over 500 conferences and nearly 200 calls for papers/publications.

Both sites are easy to search, and you can subscribe to email alerts and RSS feeds by clinical specialty or topic. They were created by a librarian (of course!) and are operated by the Samaritan Health Services Center for Health Research and Quality.

    Hello, Edward G. Miner Library staff. Thank you so much for the very nice write-up of ResearchRaven and ScanGrants. You have very cogently, helpfully laid out exactly what the Samaritan Health Services’ Center for Health Research and Quality is hoping to accomplish with the two services: to enable scholars in the health and health-related social sciences and medical humanities, nurse researchers and healthcare providers to save time as they search for funding and venues to present their research.

    It is indeed hard for students, clinician-researchers and scholars to locate all the rich material out there on their own. That is why we try to find it, aggregate it, categorize it and render it subscribeable on ResearchRaven and ScanGrants. We also try to create synergies among the disciplines by featuring everything from chemistry to literature and medicine.

    And once they are conducting their research and writing up their papers or preparing conference presentations, how lucky they are to have librarians such as you all to assist them skillfully and patiently at every stage of a frequently daunting, exhausting, bewildering process. Keep up the good work and thank you for the encouragement!

    Hi, Val. Thank you–I certainly think so, but I may be a little biased.

    By the way, your blog is superb. It is one of the best library blogs I have ever come across for any sort of library. The items are of interest, the writing excellent and the overall look handsome. Keep up the good work!
