Section I. Funding Opportunity Description

The National Library of Medicine (NLM) awards Grants for Scholarly Works in Biomedicine and Health for the preparation of book-length manuscripts and other works of academic and/or public health policy value to U.S. health professionals, public health officials, biomedical researchers, and historians of the health sciences. Grants are awarded for major critical reviews, state-of-the-art summaries, historical studies, and other useful organizations of knowledge in clinical medicine, public health, biomedical research, and the informatics/information sciences relating to them. The work of academic and/or public health policy value may be prepared for publication in print or electronic media, or both.

Scholars in biomedical fields face competing demands for their time, including requirements for clinical care services, grant-related research and administrative duties. Scholarly work draws upon original sources that may reside in archives, databases, libraries or human experts around the world, in many different languages and formats. The work of scholarship – discovery, thoughtful analysis, synthesis and lucid presentation of findings from such materials – requires protected time and support for incidental costs, including materials, staff assistance, and travel. The NLM Grant for Scholarly Works in Biomedicine and Health is intended to help defray such expenses.

NLM Grants for Scholarly Works can be used to support several types of projects of academic and/or public health policy value, including but not limited to:

  • Works focusing on the history or philosophy of medicine, public health and the life sciences, the development of medical research and health services, bioethics, and studies on the interrelationship of medicine and society
  • Works focusing on the history or philosophy of biomedical informatics, computational biology, health information sciences, health communications, or health sciences librarianship
  • Analytical and comprehensive critical reviews which identify the present status of research and practice in various health-related fields, addressing advances which have been made, problems requiring examination, and emerging trends
