Research Administration Listserv (RESADM-L)

HRI provides free access to the Research Administration Discussion List, which allows industry professionals from universities, hospitals, and government and non-profit research labs to share information and field questions for their peers.

Focused on research grant administration, the Research Administration Discussion List  features such topics as grant funding, grant submission, regulatory compliance, project budgeting, educational opportunities, and technology.

After sending your email, you will receive a response from the ListServ. Reply to this email (leaving the subject line intact!) and just enter in the word “OK” as the first line of the body of the email.  Based on your email client, you may also have a weblink in the body of the email you could alternatively click to confirm rather than sending your “OK” email. You will then immediately start to recieve all emails sent to the list. If you don’t get this confirmation email, check your Junk/Spam folder, and check with your IT department. We are unable to assist you in troubleshooting your organization’s email filters.

To send a message to the list, email the list at RESADM-L@LISTS.HRINET.ORG; remember that your email is forwarded verbatim to the entire list!  You will receive an email to confirm your list post before it will be sent to the list membership.  No confirmation, no distribution.  It protects the list from SPAM.
