Flinders Research NewsResearchNow – Flinders’ new research management system
ResearchNow is the University’s new research management system. It includes powerful tools for automatic publication harvesting, researcher profile promotion and research metrics collection and reporting.
In this issue of Inspiring Research we’re profiling ResearchNow, to introduce you, our Flinders’ research community, to this new system and provide you with key information.
How will it help me?
Your profile and publication data will be professionally presented and easily discoverable via the public ResearchNowPortal.
The system makes it easy for you to check and update your profile and publication data.
Links to Scopus make it easy to download detailed research output records.
ResearchNow will promote your research through improved discovery of publications and researcher profiles.
How will it help Flinders?
Your updated publication data will improve the overall quality and completeness of our research data.
The improved data quality and completeness combined with the enhanced reporting capability will contribute to the University’s competitive research rankings, such as ERA.
When is it coming?
The full University roll out will start in August 2019.
A full pilot with the College of Science & Engineering will begin in July 2019.
Training in how to use ResearchNow, including where and how to access support will be provided to all Flinders’ researchers and research support staff.
Researchers in the College of Science and Engineering can now register and enrol for ResearchNow at ienrol - research.
We endeavor to fully support your ResearchNow experience and journey with ongoing communications, comprehensive training opportunities and assistance. Please keep an eye out for further information about ResearchNow.
What can we expect in the future?
A next release, focusing on Applications, Projects and Grants, is scheduled for the end of this year.
“The new system is an important step forward for the University, so I seek your full cooperation in familiarising yourself with ResearchNow."
