Under this new policy, all NIH grant applications that collect data will be required to submit a data management and sharing plan (DMSP) with their application. RSpace facilitates compliance through:

✔  Integrations with Dataverse and Figshare, enabling direct deposit of datasets from RSpace to these repositories

 Upcoming integrations with Zenodo and Dryad

 An integration between RSpace and DMPTool, offering a DMPTool → RSpace → Dataverse/Figshare workflow, enabling full compliance with the NIH Policy: see video below

What our customers say about us

“I wanted to get away from paper notebooks, which are hard to search, hard to copy, and easy to lose. Plus, I was tired of printing out my results and taping them into binders or notebooks, especially since most of it was digital to begin with.”

Matthew Nicotra

University of Pittsburgh

"We’re planning to expand use of RSpace after our next round of investment — it’s an added plus that RSpace is an enterprise product with the security we need to scale as we grow."

Isaac Stoner

CEO and Founder, Octagon Therapeutics

“When I moved to the MRC Laboratory for Molecular Biology, RSpace was a core component of the infrastructure I put in place for my new lab here. Lab members found it easy to get started with RSpace, and it conveniently helps us to record, share and track our research data. I can’t imagine running a lab without it!”

Emmanuel Derivery

MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Cambridge University  

“We were using a different ELN before and decided to switch. We liked the flexibility of the program and the friendliness of RSpace. Customer service has been really good.”

Monica Lopez Lugo

Baylor College of Medicine

"We have been collaborating with Research Space since 2012 and see the company as a reliable and responsive partner. We believe that RSpace has a bright future because it was the first ELN to inter-operate with and add value to other components of a modern research data management infrastructure."

Harald Kusch

Department of Medical Informatics, University of Goettingen  

"Just as important as the product is the support we have received from Rob Day. He and his team are extremely responsive and have helped to solve technical issues and explain usage options in a timely way."

Asael Herman

VP R&D, Emendo Biotherapeutics
