Genetic Counseling Literature Repository

The Research, Quality, and Outcomes (RQO) Committee is pleased to share the digital Genetic Counseling Literature Repository (GCLR), a searchable, PMID-linked, database completely within NSGC’s website. The NSGC GCLR is a resource to identify articles that: 1) document the value and quality of genetic counseling services and 2) describe clinical and research outcomes relevant to genetic counseling patients. This resource includes peer-reviewed scientific literature and select editorials identified via a structured search protocol, conducted monthly by members of the RQO Committee. The design of the repository will facilitate user queries based on annotations determined by the GCLR Subcommittee. The GCLR will support the NSGC Research Consortium and be available to the NSGC membership.

Repository submission and maintenance

The RQO Committee continuously updates the Repository and welcomes relevant articles. If you would like to submit an article that you think should appear in the Repository, please complete the Repository Submission Form. The RQO GCLR Subcommittee will review the submission and determine eligibility. 

The GCLR Subcommittee is eager to hear from you on how it can improve this resource to fit your needs. Feel free to email if you have questions or have feedback on the Genetic Counseling Literature Repository.
