Can we help you comply with RCUK reporting?

February 25, 2010

Yesterday we heard that our application to JISC for investigating how to deliver information to RCUK was successful.  We plan to test out some ePrints reports and screens and make these freely available to other Research Organisations.

Further details will be advertised soon.

Research Councils UK Research Outcome Collection

February 22, 2010

The RCUK Research Outcomes Focus Group is discussing UK Research Organisations views on the practicalities of capturing and reporting Research Outcomes to RCUK.  The key points:

  • The original list of proposed outputs was too large.  A smaller set with clearer definitions might be more manageable and palatable.
  • Some of the proposed measures are not currently collected by RO’s.

At the University of Glasgow we are exploring practical ways that we might return information on the measures proposed.  We will report on our progress in this blog.  One of our key concerns is data synchronisation. We do not want RCUK to hold different data about key University of Glasgow staff activity than the University holds.
