Define Parameters & Protocols

What is your idea? What data will you need to gather? How will you know when you’ve gathered the right data? Do you need to create protocols for specific governing agencies? Are protocols needed for consistency in gathering or analyzing the data? Do you need help figuring out where to start with your research? UW-Madison Research Guides is a starting point that provides resources for various research topics.

The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Education (VCRGE) provides the PI Portal, a dashboard and on-ramp for all research administration and compliance.

Governing and Oversight Agencies

Depending on your idea and the data you need to gather, you may need to work with the following resources to ensure compliance with laws or regulations. Different resources address the necessary protocol when conducting research involving human or animal subjects to protect the interests and safety of all parties involved.

The Federal Agency Public Access Compliance Guide provides access to a curated list of Federal Agency Plans and Policies to ensure necessary compliance.

Human and Animal Subjects

Export Controls and Safety

Research Design

The Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (ICTR) Biostatistics and Research Design Resource (BARD) assists with design of clinical research including sample size and power calculations as well as general methodology.

To obtain real-life feedback on recruitment strategies, consent forms, data collection instruments, increase the diversity of project participants, and more, contact the Wisconsin Network for Research Support (WINRS).

The UW-Madison Libraries Research Guides provide information and references that are intended to help researchers that are new to a subject get started on their research.

Establish Data Management Plan

A Research Project Data Management Plan (DMP) describes how to collect, format, describe, organize, store, access, attribute, and preserve your data throughout your project. It is a requirement for several federal funding agencies and can also be used to describe data compliance to any relevant rules or guidelines like HIPPA.

A DMP can be of continued value throughout the project to help quickly bring new lab members on board with any project.

RDS and DMPTool

Research Data Services (RDS) offers consultations on writing a data management plan (DMP) necessary for grant applications. DMPs require Principal Investigator (PIs) to describe what data will be generated, how it will be organized and shared during the course of the project, and how it will be made publicly accessible after research is complete. They also offer guidance on how to use DMPTool, which provides templates for the individual DMPs required by most federal grants.

Plan Computing Environment

What hardware and software are currently available? What Operating System and specialized software is needed? Who needs access and from where?

Software

The Software Overview on this site and Wikipedia’s Software Comparison Charts provide starting points for finding software and training to meet your needs.

If custom software must be created, DoIT Training, Lynda.com, and Software Carpentry are available for various programming languages and environments. Once the first version of your new software is written, Morgridge’s Software Assurance Marketplace (SWAMP) provides a no-cost, high-performance, centralized cloud computing platform to help you regularly test its security.

Compute Systems and Services

Depending on the size and amount of compute tasks you’ll need to carry out, there are many options to choose from, and your project may need more than one.

Personal Workstations (Desktops, Laptops, etc.)

If the typical computation tasks you’ll perform when working with your data will only take minutes to hours to complete, a personal workstation will probably be work for your needs. The DoIT Tech Store can provide desktop/laptop quotes, purchases, support, but your local IT staff may offer specific assistance or preferences.

Large-Scale Computing

Large-scale computing is available for any amount of computing that is too “big” or would take to long on your personal workstation. Depending on the scale of the work you plan to accomplish, there are multiple option on- and off-campus.

If you are unsure sure which type of “large” computing you’ll need, the Advanced Computing Initiative (ACI) and the Center for High Throughput Computing (CHTC) provide Research Computing Facilitators to assist you. They also help connect researchers to CloudLab, an infrastructure for research on the future of cloud computing.

Your local organization may have additional training or support.

DoIT Virtual Servers

Draft & Submit Proposal

Once you have formulated your project and have a vision for its execution, you will need to apply for grant funding. Your Grant Administrator will help guide you through the process of drafting and submitting a grant proposal, including budget preparation, forms completion, and routing for campus approvals.

Finding Funding

There are many resources and databases to assist you in finding potential funding opportunities.

  • Research and Sponsored Programs (RSP) provides links to many of the most commonly-used search engines, including institutional membership to some subscription-based services at Finding Funding.
  • The Grants Information Collection (GIC), located in the Memorial Library, provides direct access to various funding databases. Their mission is to provide access to information essential to successful educational, research, and nonprofit grant-seeking, and by collecting literature in the areas of philanthropy, fundraising, and nonprofit management.

For additional guidance or assistance, consult your grant administrator.

Routing Your Submission

All grant proposals at UW-Madison must be routed for approval from the division and Research & Sponsored Programs. Your grant administrator can guide you through the necessary steps to obtain those approvals and respond to any requests from either office. RSP provides administrative support for sponsored projects, as well as institutional signature for proposals and funding agreements, and maintains the following resources:

  • ECRT: Effort Reporting Tool
  • WISPER: electronic routing form for applications and agreements
  • Cayuse: web-based system for submission of applications via grants.gov
  • WISDM: Wisconsin Data Mart for PeopleSoft Financials
  • Finding Funding

Overhead costs for each employee type vary due in part to the benefits they receive. These rates are available from RSP and the Office of Human Resources (OHR).

Essential information from the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Education (VCRGE) includes:

The VCRGE office also provides the PI Portal, a dashboard and on-ramp for research administration and compliance to navigate many of the resources listed above.
