The Research Support team at Kellogg enables and accelerates the academic research being pursued by our faculty and PhD students. We bring expertise from a wide variety of professional disciplines to help solve problems that can arise throughout the life cycle of a research project. Below are some of our main services areas.



We manage the subscriptions for approximately 100 commercial research datasets. In addition to helping with data purchases, we can also join you for conversations with companies or other organizations who are interested in sharing their data for academic research. Our team can develop data management and security plans, as well as work flows for extracting and working with these outside data sources.



Kellogg researchers have access to many high-performance research computing and storage systems - both Linux and Windows based. Research Support helps to design the solutions that our IT partners offer. We also guide researchers in finding the right computing solutions for their work and making the most of these resources.



Kellogg offers many resources for researchers who want to conduct behavioral experiments. Our subject pools contain university students and Chicagoland community members, and we also have a robust online pool that we manage through Mechanical Turk. Kellogg offers lab facilities in the Jacobs Center and at Wieboldt Hall. We also have a team of Research Fellows who can help with the design, the execution, or the analysis of your experiments.

Research Support offers computational consulting services, where we offer programming support and advice on how to use our portfolio of computational systems effectively. We have a developer who can assist on front-end design and development of web-based tools and applications for data collection. We also provide manuscript editing services through a combination of in-house and out-sourced professional editors.
