The Strong Heart Study (SHS) welcomes investigators to propose paper or thesis/dissertation topics that are related to cardiovascular disease and its risk factors using resources that can be provided by the SHS. Please select the following links to learn more about the process to submit a paper or thesis proposal. The Publications and Presentations Committee (P&P) reviews paper/thesis/dissertation proposals at the beginning of each month. The submission deadline is the first day of a month. All submitted proposals are then sent to reviewers for review. It usually takes about two weeks for SHS P&P to receive reviewers’ comments, to summarize reviewers’ comments in a memo, and then to send the memo to authors.
We encourage degree candidates to submit thesis and dissertation proposals that utilize Strong Heart Study data to address research questions related to cardiovascular health outcomes.
