Resource Management

REDCap Logo

REDCap (Research Electronic Data Capture) is a secure web application for building and managing online surveys and databases. REDCap provides audit trails for tracking data manipulation and user activity, as well as automated export procedures for seamless data downloads to Excel, PDF, and common statistical packages (SPSS, SAS, Stata, R). Visit the main REDCap site or UMMS' REDCap login.

For REDCap support, UMMS maintains a REDCap Wiki.



MyNCBI remembers your search history for six months; lets you set up search alerts so you always know when something new has been published on your subject; and integrates with citation managers like RefWorks or EndNote. It can also help you keep track of your own publications with MyBibliography.


Publishing and Presenting

Getting your work published

Consider submitting your capstone project to journals or conferences. The American Medical Student Research Journal specifically publishes work by medical students.

Designing a scientific poster

The Lamar Soutter Library offers classes and consultations for creating scientific posters by request.
