Identify a Collaborator

The BERD Methods Core helps investigators navigate the quantitative or qualitative resources at Duke to identify the appropriate methodologist(s) for their research.

There are three ways to find the appropriate resource for collaboration:

  1. Assisted navigation: Complete the BERD request form. We will search the network of quantitative and qualitative resources at Duke to identify if there is an appropriate and available methodologist for the request.
  2. Self-navigation: Visit myRESEARCHpath to learn more about quantitative and qualitative resources at Duke and to find contact information for potential methodologist collaborators.
  3. Attend BERD office hours if you need further guidance.

Visit myRESEARCHpath to learn more about the resources below and to find contact information.

If appropriate collaborators cannot be identified through existing resources, BERD can also help you build long-term partnerships with teams of methodologists. The following is a list of partnerships that have been developed between the Duke BERD and Departments, Centers, and Institutes at Duke.
