QCIF releases new ReDBox Research Activity Portal

A free online resource allowing data managers and institutions to quickly and easily register a research activity and generate a Research Activity ID (RAiD) is now available.

The Research Activity Portal (RAP) produces a RAiD, a persistent identifier used to connect researchers, data, infrastructure and services to research projects.

RAP also provides export functions for institutional reporting and customised forms to support an institution’s own data management requirements.

RAP is available at and is free for any institution to access.

As part of a major revitalisation and modernisation of the ReDBox platform, QCIF’s Engineering Services team has collaborated with the University of Queensland Data Life Cycle Framework (DLCF) project to create RAP.

RAP is the first complete cloud deployment of the open-source ReDBox DLC, the new ReDBox research data management platform, which is due for full release in 2018.

An update of ReDBox 1.9 to support RAiDs for existing ReDBox implementations will be available in December 2017.
