Citing REDCap?

Please cite the publication below in study manuscripts using REDCap for data collection and management. We recommend the following boilerplate language:

Study data were collected and managed using REDCap electronic data capture tools hosted at [YOUR INSTITUTION].1REDCap (Research Electronic Data Capture) is a secure, web-based application designed to support data capture for research studies, providing 1) an intuitive interface for validated data entry; 2) audit trails for tracking data manipulation and export procedures; 3) automated export procedures for seamless data downloads to common statistical packages; and 4) procedures for importing data from external sources.

Is REDCap Open Source Software?

No. While REDCap is available at no charge to consortium partners, and the application is built using some Open Source components, the REDCap application is not Open Source. Vanderbilt University retains control over new functionality, bug fixes, and the release process.

What is REDCap’s Downtime Schedule?

LSUHSC REDCap Admin performs monthly upgrades to the REDCap servers. REDCap will have a very brief downtime between 8:30am and 9:00am on the first Friday of every month. Typically, the downtime will last less than 30 minutes. If REDCap ever needs to be taken offline outside of this regular schedule, users will be notified via email ahead of time. If this time conflicts with your project, please contact REDCap staff.
