Doing Research at MUSC
Long-term functionality will evolve as users become proficient and offer input. Development of comparative capability for college specific dashboards is underway as well. In addition, with the implementation of the new COEUS Awards Management System, information on awards will be tracked through its lifecycle to its expenditures more effectively, providing a true relational view of proposals, awards, and expenditures.
Data used for the Research Metrics Dashboard are pulled from institutional systems of record: Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP); Grants and Contracts Accounting (GCA); and Space Allocation and Management System (SAMWA)/Colleague databases.
- University wide summary and trend analysis data/graphs
- College summary and trend analysis data/graphs
- Department summary data
- Division summary data
- Principal Investigator data
- Any major data element can be grouped and summary data displayed, i.e.: GCR Number, Application Type, Fund Source, Fund Use, NIH Agency, NIH Type.
Access is based on role and unit, e.g., college deans have access to all data within their respective college; department chairs access to department specific data, etc.
To request access please email Loretta Lynch-Reichert in the Office of the Associate Provost for Research: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Research Metrics Dashboard is a collaboration between the Offices of the Associate Provost for Research and the Office of the Chief Information Officer.
