ComPADRE regularly engages in focused research to improve its collections, appearance, performance, and usability.
For instance, trial features are sometime made available to a random sampling of anonymous users and usage statistics analyzed.
When intended for publication, such research projects are approved by an Institutional Review Board governed by Title 45 Part 46 of the Code of Federal Regulations.
At this time, we are collecting information on the research projects we have conducted since 2001 that have resulted in publication. We expect to have this information collected and posted by November 1, 2009.
From September 21, 2009 forward, approved research projects will be described on this page at least 30 days prior to the research.
If you have any questions, please contact us.
