Efforts of agencies and schools of social work to encourage goals of research and professional writing among their staff and faculty have brought uneven results. A medical center and a graduate school of social work are in the process of implementing a joint research model which encourages practice based research and publication. This paper describes the beginning structures of the model and the questions addressed in the formative process.
