REDCap (Research Electronic Data Capture)

REDCap (Research Electronic Data Capture) is a browser-based, metadata-driven software solution and workflow methodology for designing clinical and translational research databases. REDCap was developed by an informatics team at Vanderbilt University (Nashville, Tennessee). Nowadays it is widely used in the academic research community: the REDCap Consortium is a collaborative, international network of more than 3500 institutional partners in over 130 countries, with almost 1,000,000 total end-users employing the software for more than 700,000 ongoing research studies.

Although REDCap software is available at no charge to institutional partners it is not open-source software:

  • REDCap is restricted in use, permitted only for non-commercial research purposes.
  • REDCap is also restricted in redistribution because Vanderbilt is the only entity that can distribute it.
  • All derived works – such as innovations or programmatic features added on by the user – are essentially owned by Vanderbilt.
  • Remember to cite REDCap in your study manuscripts.


  • Server hosting, backup and maintenance are provided by UEF Bioinformatics Center and UEF IT Services.
  • Accessible from university intranet only!
  • Accessible from outside of UEF intranet using VPN or Citrix Receiver
