REDCap (Research Electronic Data Capture) is a secure web application developed by Vanderbilt University for building and managing online surveys and databases.
REDCap provides automated export procedures for seamless data downloads to Excel and common statistical packages (SPSS, SAS, Stata, R), as well as a built-in project calendar, a scheduling module, ad hoc reporting tools and advanced features, such as branching logic, file uploading and calculated fields. Its recruitment use is to create screening surveys and e-consents.
REDCap is free to use for all UB researchers, staff and students. It may be accessed by clicking here and may be opened by creating an account using an UBIT name and password.
For an overview of its features and some quick video tutorials of REDCap in action, please see the Training Resources page.
NOTICE: Data collected for the purposes of human subjects research requires review and approval of the project by the IRB. Here is some language to use in the IRB submission to describe how the data is stored in REDCap:
"The University at Buffalo’s REDCap instance is located on UB’s Active Directory network. Access to REDCap data is encrypted and username/password protected. The REDCap management interface is on a private, non-routable network, accessible to system administrators only."
