Founded in 1999, Interfolio operates the first-ever Faculty Information System for higher education institutions, the widely used Dossier product for individual scholars, and the Researchfish impact assessment platform for funders and research organizations. Having served millions of academics over more than twenty years, Interfolio believes that scholars are the group most central to the success of higher education. Whether serving as researchers, instructors, clinical practitioners, administrators, or other roles, faculty are the core of the academic mission. They constitute a critical and unique force that needs its own resources.
Interfolio Dossier is a free, confidential online platform for scholars to collect and curate scholarly materials, request and receive confidential letters of recommendation, and prepare for upcoming evaluations. Your Dossier never expires and we will store your documents indefinitely. Dossier provides you with one centralized account to collect and manage confidential letters of recommendation and other materials you will need for review, funding opportunities, admission to graduate school, jobs in higher education, and other academic and professional opportunities.

If you are a Dossier Deliver user, we will quality-check letters for you within 4 business days of their arrival in your account.
