New University of Bristol
Research Information System
Lack of integration of research information across our current University systems
Significant gaps have been identified in the research information currently being captured
IRIS the University’s publication management system was no longer fit for purpose
We need a system to support the development of the University’s REF submission
A system is required to reduce manual data entry and minimise duplication of effort
A system is required to support reporting on research information at all levels in the institution.Why do we need a Research Information System at the University of Bristol?
And will allow us to collect:
PurePortal = Pure information publically available for searching and browsing
Browse across the University organisation hierarchy, research groups, content type
Method by which full text will be made available (replacing ROSE) and publications metadata available (replacing IRIS)
Will make content available for Google and similar search engines including making content available for Google Scholar
Content is inter-related
Content is entirely driven by information in Pure and therefore no manual re-entry of information is required
Example external view of a publication on the PurePortal
The full text is available
Potential to have ‘Amazon-like’ features such as ‘publications by the same authors’
Ability to browse to look at an internal author personal page
Able to browse to look at information by organisations that are associated to the publication e.g. Schools, research groups
Future potential to link pieces of content- the example here shows the publication linked to a seminar
