Community-Based Research (CBR) offers widely recognized benefits to students and to communities. While it can be a work of passion on the part of faculty, it requires great effort without formal or professional recognition. Finding ways to formally recognize and document CBR projects has the potential to increase the benefits to all participants, and thereby create incentives for increased applications of CBR. We present a campus-based project to create an open access annual reviewed digital volume for CBR reports (CBR@CSUCI) designed to recognize and publicize model CBR projects at our campus. Our workshop will describe the rationale for the initiative, and the steps that we have taken to realize it. Specifically, we address the following topics: Rationale for a CBR volume/repository; Finding institutional support on campus; Developing a review process (and specifying how it articulates with RTP processes); Recruiting editors and reviewers; Developing necessary guidelines and materials; Creating a call for submissions, and cultivating submissions; Developing an online system for submission, review, and publication; and Developing a long-term plan for expanding CBR capacity. The workshop will help participants to recognize the potential in such initiatives, and to provide specific tools for implementing it on their own campus.
