Research Consultations

We can plan personalized meetings for graduate students to simply chat about projects. We can act as a sounding board for ideas, provide general feedback on research design and help plan out the next steps. If you are looking for help with a specific research skill or software, we can give our own expertise, schedule an expert for you, or arrange a collaboration.

CO-AUTHORSHIP POLICY: If sections of a manuscript are drafted, co-authorship is requested. Please note, drafting of a manuscript includes developing new ideas or writing new sections to its content in a meaningful and constructive way that goes beyond editing services. To utilize time adequately on the projects, CEDaR prefers to contribute to the design and data analysis components of the study rather writing up the explanations. Acknowledgement is appreciated if data analysis is performed for a manuscript. Moreover, CEDaR would enthusiastically be a part of new projects at its development stage through generating new ideas with students and faculty. If the ideas are valued, acknowledgement to the effort is expected in a successfully completed project.


*We ask you to give us at least two weeks to complete any project under these services.
