NIH Free Resource Anthology

The Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (OBSSR) at the National Institutes of Health created a free resource designed to house all current, quality behavioral and social science research. Created with the help of New England Research Institutes, e-Source demonstrates how social science research applies to public health initiatives, trains future scientists, and enhances the biomedical research field.

e-Source consists of five major sections:

Setting the Scene introduces major concepts of behavioral and social science research.

Describing How discusses methodologies to explain how something could occur.

Explaining Why describes using qualitative methods to try to answer the question of why something is happening.

What Works discusses evaluation.

Emerging Issues highlights challenges in behavioral and social science research.

e-Source is available on the Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research website:
