Research & Scholarship Category Definition

The three traditional dimensions of the academic endeavor are: research and scholarship, instruction, and service. Candidates for the R&S Category are low-risk Service Providers that support research and scholarship as an essential component. For example, a service providing tools for both multi-institutional research collaboration and instruction is eligible as a candidate for the R&S Category. However, because of the risk involved, a Service Provider that engages subjects in experiments that require specific oversight is not eligible for the R&S Category.

DIFF showing Modifications from the current published wording:

The three traditional dimensions of the academic endeavor are: research and scholarship, instruction, and service. Candidates for the R&S Category are low-risk Service Providers that support research and scholarship as an essential component. are specifically intended to support some aspect of inter-institutional research and scholarship; SPs aimed to enable instruction or service do not qualify for this category, even if they are intended for use by academics. Likewise, SPs that provide generalized services that have been or might be adopted for use in support of research and scholarship activities, but whose primary purpose is not research and scholarship, are not included in the R&S Category. They may have other uses, but they must have a primary focus on research and scholarship. For example, a service providing tools for both multi-institutional research collaboration and instruction is eligible as a candidate for the R&S Category. However, because of the risk involved, SPs a Service Provider that engages their subjects in experiments that require specific oversight are is not eligible for the R&S Category.
