Guidance on Data Access, Presentations, and Publications

Guidance Document

In Spring 2019, the IEPA Research Committee finalized their "Guidance on Data Access, Presentation & Publication Related to IEPA Programming and Research."  

This document is intended to:

  • Encourage Interprofessional Educators and Practitioners Association (IEPA) Associates to routinely seek academic publication and presentation opportunities related to their involvement in interprofessional education (IPE) programming
  • Support expectations for interprofessional collaborative publication which outline individual member responsibility and accountability
  • Facilitate collaboration and encourage participation of an interprofessional team in all appropriate opportunities
  • Establish uniform procedures which facilitate submissions while minimizing overlap and ensuring dissemination of findings to appropriate audiences
  • Coordinate reporting of IPE-related publications/presentations for inclusion in IEPA reports, including listing on the IEPA website
