Research Data Management

The Office of Research Integrity (ORI) provides centralized support, education, and policy development to facilitate and promote the responsible and ethical acquisition, use, sharing and maintenance of research data at Brown. ORI partners with the research community to assist with the implementation of strategic initiatives involving the use of research data, helping to build new models of data sharing and related processes to enable Brown to achieve its research collaboration and growth objectives. 

For questions concerning research data use, retention, and management, please contact us at [email protected].
