Devica Samsunder, from AIAMC-member organization Baptist Health South Florida, will demonstrate how the Medical Library actively supports the organization’s mission of research discovery and impact via its repository, Scholarly CommonsDevica will share two success stories as examples. In her first example, the library team supported residents in the GME section of the Pharmacy program to upload their publications to the IR. These papers generated over 3,000 downloads from 93 countries and 400 institutions. Devica’s second success story highlights the Nursing & Health Sciences Research Journal, a peer-reviewed publication featuring research, evidence-based practice projects, performance improvement, case studies, literature reviews and letters to the Editor. Having launched in 2018 and published 18 papers, the journal has quickly gained a global audience with over 7,000 downloads and is indexed in both CINHAL and DOAJ.

The backbone of Baptist Health’s Scholarly Commons is Digital Commons, a cloud-hosted repository platform with professional-grade journal publishing tools and built for discovery on the open web. Manisha Wolak from the Digital Commons team will share an overview of the platform’s reporting features, including on-demand readership statistics, interactive download maps, and PlumX Metrics integration that let you know exactly where your health system’s scholarship is having the greatest impact in real-time.

The webinar will conclude with an opportunity for questions and answers.
