Contributing to Open Access: Center for Behavioral Intervention Technologies


CBITS LogoIt’s International Open Access Week! Every October libraries, societies, publishers, and authors around the world promote openness as a pathway to knowledge equity and a tool to address the inequalities that shape societies. This year’s theme is Community over Commercialization  designed to encourage “a candid conversation about which approaches to open scholarship prioritize the best interests of the public and the academic community—and which do not.” This Open Access Week we are excited to highlight some of the contributions being made to Open Access here at Feinberg.

Center for Behavioral Intervention Technologies

The Center for Behavioral Intervention Technologies (CBITs) brings together a multidisciplinary team of professional to conduct research on digital mental health (DMH) technologies and provide training and resources to assist researchers and clinicians on implementing these technologies in their practice. 

The CBITs IRB Materials currently live in Feinberg’s institutional repository, Prism, and exist to document and provide future guidance for research projects. Regarding their decision to upload these materials to Prism, they say: 

CBITs values contributing materials to PRISM and making them available to the community of digital mental health researchers. With a varied and growing group of experts in many areas needed to advance the field, sharing knowledge improves the speed and impact of research done in the digital mental health space.

Prism is an institutional repository for Feinberg School of Medicine and is available for all community members to upload and share their scholarly outputs. It may be accessed here . The Prism Galter Guide provides more information and guidance on how to use the institutional repository to raise the profile of your research.
