Repository staff investigate copyright permissions and upload works on your behalf. RO@M includes conference papers, creative works, technical reports and exceptional student work submitted by faculty on a student’s behalf.

Statistical consultation

The Department of Mathematics & Statistics can ensure that the data you gather supports your research goals. What is an ideal sample size for the research study you’re proposing? Which methods should you use for proper data analysis? How should the statistical results be interpreted? Consulting statistics experts to support your research enhances your credibility as a serious researcher.

Survey consultation

Does your project require a large survey to gather feedback or opinions? The Office of Research Services provides faculty peer support with large survey administration and questionnaire design; this can help increase your response rates, improve questionnaire design and survey administration, and streamline reporting on survey methodology. Consultations may be offered on a one-on-one basis or via occasional workshops..
Note that survey consultations focus on large survey design, not on general research advice that is offered by ORS.
