Research & Scholarship Support at JMU


As James Madison University’s central research administration office, Research & Scholarship broadly supports the scholarly endeavors of the JMU community, but relies on collaborative relationships across the institution to implement programs, administer policies, and develop creative solutions to challenges impacting researchers.  The development of this document serves as just one small example of collaboration among areas of the university seeking to support research administration, specifically JMU Libraries, JMU Information Technology, and the Office of Research & Scholarship.

The draft outline included in this document is intended to promote further conversation at JMU about support resources for research and scholarship at JMU.  It is not intended to be a comprehensive or detailed public description of research and scholarship resources at JMU.  Emphasis is on centrally provided resources, services, and technology.  It does not cover all types of research and scholarship resources at JMU, with the most notable exclusion being faculty and other human resources.  It is not about research and scholarship support in general – e.g. faculty release time, research assistants and GAs, access to research funding, etc.  Instead, it is intended to provide a top-level taxonomy of infrastructure and material resources along with pointers to campus agencies and services that are available to researchers and scholars at JMU. In order to enable use of this document as a Launchpad for exploration of research and scholarship resources at JMU, URLs that link to additional information are provided when available.
