REL Midwest conducts short-term research and development according to needs-based data, as well as long-term studies using randomized controlled trials. Reports that result from short-term projects are available as two ongoing Web-based series—Issues & Answers and REL Technical Briefs. Both undergo external peer review to ensure that they meet IES standards for scientifically based research before being published. To browse and download reports that result from projects of all the RELs, visit the IES website.
