Behavior change interventions: The potential of ontologies for advancing science and practice

Kai R. Larsen recently published a paper in "Journal of Behavioral Medicine" co-authored by Susan Michie, Eric Hekler, and Jean Yi. A central goal of behavioral medicine is the creation of evidence-based interventions for promoting behavior change. Scientific knowledge about behavior change could be more effectively accumulated using "ontologies." In information science, an ontology is a systematic method for articulating a "controlled vocabulary" of agreed-upon terms and their inter-relationships.

Human Behavior Project research team assists in NIH report on GEM website

Team members at the Human Behavior Project completed a report for NIH that evaluated the GEM (Grid-Enabled Measures Database) website for possible improvements. GEM is a tool for researchers to share and discover related research information. Evaluation focused on suggestions that would encourage users to share information about constructs and measures that will increase the ability to detect construct synonymy and similarity. More information about the goals of GEM can be found here.
