eRC: Overview


eResearch Central is a central location where researchers and their staff can access the University's electronic documents and forms associated with research, sponsored projects, and research-related compliance. eResearch Central includes:

  • single point-of-access to documents at all stages of the preparation and review process; and
  • system-generated. notifications about research-related University tasks that need to be completed, via a personalized list of required documents that are due in the near future.

In the initial release of eResearch Central, researchers and their staff will be able to complete, track, and receive automated reminders about Institutional Review Board (IRB) and Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) continuing reviews and IACUC 3-year renewals.

eResearch Central's functionality will grow over time, phasing in the ability to complete and track other research-related University forms and to allow sharing of data among University research-related databases. Such integration will streamline processes for researchers and their staff and for those who manage research compliance.
