EM RESEARCH

Our Vision

The UHN Emergency Medicine Research Program supports multiple innovative and collaborative projects across a diverse group of research themes including clinical emergency medicine, addiction medicine and health equity, education, global health, health service delivery, injury prevention, palliative care, and quality assurance.  The UHN EM Assistant Director of Research (ADR) and the Research Committee provide support and oversight for research projects that involve patients, staff, trainees, and resources of the UHN Emergency Departments.

We nurture and mentor clinicians and researchers in training, we collaborate and innovate as a synergistic, multi-interest team, and we focus on improving emergency medicine and public health at local, national and global levels.

New website & checklist for identifying deceptive publishers

Deceptive publishers, also known as “predatory journals”, are for-profit entities that purport to publish high quality academic research, but do not follow scholarly publishing best practices. Sending your manuscript to one of these low-quality publications can cost you money and prevent your research from being widely disseminated.
The University of Toronto Libraries and the Division of the Vice-President, Research & Innovation have collaborated on a new website and checklist to assist in identifying some of the typical practices used by deceptive publishers so you can avoid submitting manuscripts to these journals.

**Caution: Publications in predatory journals will not be eligible for publication awards or reimbursement of publication fees from UHN EM Research.
