Research & Scholarship Category (R&S) - The R&S Category includes service providers that support research and scholarly activities such as virtual organizations and campus-based collaboration services. There are currently 79 InCommon Service Providers in the category. Participating Identity Providers agree to release a small set of attributes to the category. Each time a vetted Service Provider is added to the category, that SP receives the appropriate attributes.
