A multi-disciplinary, informal and free-flowing research environment


NubiS is a complete data collection tool developed from the ground up by USC. NubiS runs on any server, pc, laptop or netbook as well as on android tablets or smartphones.

The NubiS system incudes all the traditional modes of data collection like self-administered, face-to-face, and telephone interviewing. NubiS can also collect continuous information from smartphones, tablets or other external devices like accelerometers, GPS devices, bloodpressure meters and other biomedical devices. This information can be combined with survey data and for example used to prompt or ask questions to respondents.

NubiS is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the terms of the GNU Lesser General Public License as published by the Free Software Foundation; either version 2.1 of the License, or (at your option) any later version.

We are currently using NubiS for internal projects only, but the NubiS source code will be made available on github soon.
