Lab and Research Website Hosting

Research and laboratory websites are essential tools for the research community at UNH. Various website hosting services are available through UNH, depending on the data, the contributors, and the nature of the lab or research.

Purpose and Audience

Research and laboratory websites serve as tools for publishing, sharing and collecting research information related to work being done at UNH. The audience for these sites is the UNH community, affiliated researchers and institutions, scientific communities and the general public.

Individual Research or Laboratories

If a website represents an individual's research or laboratory, then that website should be hosted at MyPages, a free website-building tool available to members of the UNH community. MyPages websites can have multiple UNH site editors for easier upkeep, and ongoing training is available.

University Research Center or Laboratory

If the website represents the work of a recognized research center or laboratory that will continue to exist regardless of the presence of any individual, then that website should be part of the  appropriate entity’s website (e.g. college) to which it belongs.. For more information or for interdisciplinary centers, please contact Web and Mobile Development (WMD).

Special Data Representation Needs

Special data handling, such as data management, gathering, or visualization can be supported by the Research Computing Center (RCC). To request a research website with special data representation needs, please contact RCC.

Multi-institute Websites

Researchers that require websites representing multiple institute research groups or consortiums can request a multi-institute site from the Research Computing Center.

Support

For support or questions about research or lab sites, please contact WMD.

Training

Anyone working on a myPages or unh.edu website is welcome to attend the open walk-in training and help sessions that Academic Technology offers. For a schedule of the training sessions and walk-in times, see the Academic Technology training calendar.

Responsibility for Content

Websites created by members of the University community acting as official representatives of the University of New Hampshire must comply with all relevant laws, University policies, and this standard. See specific standards for more information.

Violations

Although UNH AT does not monitor or regularly review website content, it reserves the right to remove at any time any content that it considers to violate this standard or any other UNH policies.

If inappropriate or inaccurate content is discovered, UNH WMD will contact the site owner to discuss the issue. If the site or content owner cannot be contacted or is no longer at UNH, that content will be administered by WMD and can be removed if deemed inaccurate or inappropriate. When content is obviously unacceptable, UNH WMD will immediately remove the content prior to contacting the site owner. Unacceptable entries also may cause site access to be suspended.

Reports regarding inappropriate content may be sent to WMD.
