Journals Library

The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) is the world’s first health research funder to publish comprehensive accounts of its funded research within its own publicly and permanently available journals. Through the NIHR Journals Library, you can see the projects being funded as well as the final published journal reports.


The NIHR Journals Library comprises a suite of five open access journals providing an important and permanent archive of research funded by the National Institute for Health Research. Read more about our journals.

Research Projects

The NIHR funds valuable independent research for health and social care decision makers. While some of the research programmes share common themes and complement each other, they each have different specialist funding remits and are managed by different centres on behalf of the NIHR.

 The NIHR Journals Library provides information relating to its research throughout the life of each project, on individual research pages. These pages also provide access to the published research in the NIHR’s open access, peer reviewed series of journals, comprising Efficacy and Mechanism Evaluation, Health Services and Delivery Research, Health Technology Assessment, Public Health Research and Programme Grants for Applied Research.
