Welcome to REDCap!

REDCap is a secure, web-based application for building and managing online surveys and databases. Using REDCap's stream-lined process for rapidly developing projects, you may create and design projects using 1) the online method from your web browser using the Online Designer; and/or 2) the offline method by constructing a 'data dictionary' template file in Microsoft Excel, which can be later uploaded into REDCap. Both surveys and databases (or a mixture of the two) can be built using these methods.

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.

If you would like to view some quick video tutorials of REDCap in action and an overview of its features, please see the Training Resources page.You can enter data and explore the sample databases, if you like, in order to get the feel of REDCap before you begin to build your first project.

REDCap is a resource of the Center for Clinical and Translational Science and Training provided to researchers affiliated with the University of Cincinnati Academic Health Center. When you are ready to create a project, go to CCTST > Research Central > Request Consultation, fill out the form, and under 'Consultation services requested (select all that apply):' select 'REDCap' to get started with training and support.
