Due to the coronavirus outbreak, the IRIS team will be working remotely for the near future. We are reachable through email and phone, as listed on our staff page.
IRIS is… a national consortium of research universities organized around an IRS-approved data repository. We develop data for research and reporting to understand, explain and improve the public value of research and higher education.
Provide and Use the Data
IRIS provides member institutions with university-specific reports based on their data, highlighting the impacts of their research efforts and investments.
Refine the Data
IRIS creates a secure data enclave for the research community by collecting, integrating, warehousing, and making large-scale data accessible to researchers.
Leverage the Data
IRIS provides policy makers with credible data on the value of research to address pressing social science and policy questions.
“…Efforts to synthesize data would benefit from the empirical infrastructure built since 2015 by the Institute for Research on Innovation and Science (IRIS), which provides a platform for linking university administrative records with U.S. Census data, as well as administrative data with other databases, including patents and publications… Given the promising nature of the IRIS system, the committee strongly urges that research institutions join the IRIS initiative.”

“IRIS data allow observational experiments that can directly test this people-centric model by tracking how scientific training affects career trajectories and returns to industry. Preliminary IRIS data indicate, for example, that a science doctorate improves a person’s chances of entering a high-tech industry, which will result in higher wages and greater productivity.”
—MICHAEL EINSTEIN, “ASSESSMENT: ACADEMIC RETURN,” NATURE 5 MAY 2016, VOL 533, p. S21
“My congressional representative asked me about output measures of Ohio State research. Was that research making an impact and how did we measure it? … I find the IRIS data increasingly useful for discussions about the value of research.”
—CAROLINE C. WHITACRE, VP FOR RESEARCH, OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY
“AAU universities conduct a majority of the federally funded university research, contributing to U.S. economic competitiveness, health, and national security. Now, with the help of IRIS, universities can better understand and demonstrate the impacts of research to their students, local community, and nation.”
– MARY SUE COLEMAN, PRESIDENT, ASSOCIATION OF AMERICAN UNIVERSITIES
