Time for an Annual Mailing List Subscription Check-up with the Research Listserv

On March 1, 2017, the Office of Research Services (ORS) and the Research Information Technology Department launched the Research Listserv for research related mailings throughout the Mount Sinai Health System.

For the last year, it has served as a primary source of research related information for the Mount Sinai Health System (MSHS), sending out nearly 450 emails to our more than 4000 subscribers from throughout the system, many of whom may be unaware of their power to customize their subscription preferences according to their interests and roles in research.

Two of the Research Listserv’s founding goals were to provide choice to users and to limit duplicate blast emails. Therefore, it sends mailings out according to topic and subject, selections that can be made by a user at any time within the MSHS firewall by entering their email address under Research Listserv on the Getting Started page of the Research Web Portal. If a subscriber picks every list below, they can expect to get a broad range of announcements without duplication of individual mailings. Below are the lists from which subscribers can choose:

It is vital that new research hires and any research personnel who are not getting these emails visit the Getting Started page on the Research Portal where they can find the Research Listserv box and enter their email address to join. Important research related announcements are made by the Dean’s Office as needed, and so please pass the word along. Once new members click on “Save Changes,” they are subscribed and will receive a confirmation email summarizing their selections.

Please feel free to open a ticket with the ORS Research 411 Portal’s Communications Support form for assistance with subscribing,  if you have questions about the Research Listserv, or if you have a message that you need to send to the research community.
