A Box Research Lab Folder offers research groups in need of centralized data storage for research collaboration many unique features and benefits:
To any Purdue research group requiring data storage space for research collaboration.
Easily accessible through your web browser, and facilitates easy sharing with collaborators within Purdue and without.
A Box Research Lab folder facilitates joint work on shared files across your research group, avoiding the need for numerous copies of datasets across individuals' private storage. It is an ideal place to store a project's data and documents. A Lab Folder can store unlimited data, with a maximum size of a single file up to 15 GB.
Access management is under your direct control, within the bounds of the appropriate data use agreements, IRB protocols, or technology control plans.
All data kept in the Box Research Lab Folder remains owned by the research group's lead faculty. Files kept in the project's lab folder remain with the research group, unaffected by turnover, and could head off potentially difficult disputes. Data is also retained and protected in alignment with the appropriate data security standards governing your research projects.
A Box Research Lab Folder is never subject to purging.
Box Research Lab Folders are built on Purdue's centrally-managed Box.com service, which is a highly-available, secure cloud storage platform.
Box Research Lab Folders are not designed to align with the NIST SP 800-171 standard, and are not approved for storing L3 projects requiring HIPAA-aligned storage. Please request a REED Folder for sensitive or restricted research data.
