Office of Grants and Scientific Publications (OGSP)
In support of UAMS' vision of becoming an internationally recognized health sciences center, the mission of OGSP is to
- Serve the UAMS research community as a scientific writing and editorial resource, with the goal of enhancing investigators' chances of obtaining extramural grant funding or publishing in peer-reviewed journals
- Teach UAMS researchers grantsmanship and proposal development through mentoring, workshops, and presentations
- Seek to continually improve the office's services by appropriate data gathering and analysis aimed at refining efficacious methods
- Improve the health of Arkansans by working as part of the UAMS community to develop educational and outreach materials and by assisting in policy development
What We Do and Whom We Serve
In fulfilling this mission, OGSP offers editorial services for many types of writing projects. Our top priority is to help investigators succeed in the highly competitive process of securing extramural grant funding. We also focus on manuscripts for peer-reviewed journals, progress reports, and other types of scientific communications.
OGSP serves faculty investigators in all UAMS colleges, as well as organizations that partner with UAMS in research. Our team of seasoned editors can offer a mentoring experience in NIH grantsmanship, particularly to those applying for their first grants, but also as to experienced researchers facing an increasingly competitive funding environment. OGSP editors also provide guidance to scientists in developing manuscripts for peer-reviewed publication.
We invite you to further browse the OGSP website. The Services page explains more fully the extent of our editorial expertise, and the Staff page offers brief information on OGSP’s administration and experience of our editors. And please do visit the Resources page ; we think you will find much worthwhile there.
How to Obtain Services
To receive assistance, contact OGSP to discuss needed services and deadlines. Please note that several months' notice may be required for scheduling large, multidisciplinary projects, especially for standard NIH deadlines.
Requests for assistance are evaluated and prioritized by the Associate Director of OGSP and institutional leaders on the basis of scientific merit, institutional priority, and funding or publication potential.
In most cases, costs for OGSP services are covered through administrative contracts rather than charging individual investigators; arrangements for payment for services will be discussed when services are requested.
