REDCap Overview

Queen Mary University of London has been a REDCap consortium partner for a number of years. We host REDCap servers to support the development of research projects as well as production ready environments.

REDCap is part of the Data Safe Haven and is specifically geared to support data capture for clinical research studies.


If you are collecting data for the purposes of human subjects research, review and approval of the project is required by your Institutional Review Board.

REDCap is a mature, secure web 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:

  • the online method from your web browser using the Online Designer; and/or
  • 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 there are any userguides that you would like adding to support your research project, please let us know here.
