Computerized Research Record
Computerized Research Record (CoRR) is a productivity platform designed to help faculty, staff and service providers manage research projects. CoRR’s integrated request management system allows for entering comments and logging work against a project or service request, communication and collaboration among service providers and the research team, and storage of project-related documents, creating a single comprehensive research record. It is recommended that scientists in The Research Institute at Nationwide Children’s Hospital working on projects funded by CTSA register them in CoRR.
