Presentation Abstract

Electronic records are playing an increasing role in research administration. Many institutions are developing electronic business processes to leverage the capabilities of electronic media and computer networks. These efforts are generally categorized as electronic research administration and the presentation will highlight some national trends.

The Office of Research and Sponsored Projects Administration at Arizona State University has been implementing a Research Information System over the last several years.
