Other Services for Researchers

The Office of Research Initiatives is always on the hunt to identify new resources to help researchers! Here are a few of our other projects we're working on.


Duke has acquired licenses for access to the anti-plagiarism software, iThenticate, for faculty and certain staff/trainees. Access to the software varies by school, so if you have questions about gaining access, please contact researchinitiatives@duke.edu.

Lending Library

Our Research Navigators service allows us to understand the needs of Duke researchers on a system-wide scale. In response to an unmet need identified by our team we have acquired a set of encrypted digital voice recorders which are currently available at no cost.*
