Join us for a Live Demo on the Updated Research in Ministry® (RIM®)

ATLA has released an updated and new instance of Research in Ministry® (RIM®), the database for sharing and searching abstracts of papers and projects. The new database now allows authors, librarians, department chairs, and others to include new abstracts in RIM through a self-submission system. ATLA will no longer be entering these on behalf of participating institutions.

RIM indexes the bibliographic data and abstracts for projects and theses from a variety of graduate programs including Doctor of Ministry (DMin), Doctor of Missiology (DMiss), and Doctor of Educational Ministry (DEdMin), and with the new release, other related graduate programs. RIM is a searchable database with entries for authors, titles, advisors, schools, and ATLA subject headings.

We Invite Your Feedback on Research in Ministry® (RIM®)

ATLA’s free database Research in Ministry® (RIM®) offers users abstracts of projects and theses from over one hundred Doctor of Ministry (DMin), Doctor of Missiology (DMiss), and Doctor of Educational Ministry (DEdMin) programs accredited by the Association of Theological Schools. Currently, users can search for abstracts included in RIM by keyword and view records that include the thesis or project title, the names of authors and advisors, as well as ATLA subject headings.

ATLA is preparing to migrate the RIM database to a new platform, which will offer users improved function and the addition of new features.
