Request for Box Research Data Storage
The Box Research Data Storage is utilized to store research data and other confidential information in a separate folder from personal folders. The Box Research Data Storage folder system has special security settings to further secure the data from unauthorized access, and allows for longer retention periods. It will be necessary for the Principal Investigator (PI) or folder owner to utilize their UNL account and email to access Box Research Data Storage. Because a PI or folder owner may require more than one research folder with different collaborators, the name of the folder will be the Research Reference Number (or IRB #, sponsored agreement number, contract number). In order to be able to define the restrictions and requirements necessary for the data, it is required for the PI or folder owner to select the types of data that will be stored in the folder and the purpose for the data storage. Once the folder is setup, the PI or folder owner will receive an email.
For the PI or folder owner, once logged into Box, a new folder will be displayed named “Restricted-“. For collaborators, once logged into Box, they will see a folder name that is the number entered in the Research Reference Number field.
- In order to request access a new or additional folder, the PI or folder owner will need to fill out the “Request a new research Box folder” request form.
- If you need to add collaborators to an existing folder, select “Request to add collaborators to an existing research Box folder”
