At our recent workshops we did a quick poll based on some of the entities that RCUK suggested they might want to gather data for.
These entities may change now that the RCUK Outcomes Project is not planning to build a new system but use several existing systems however we expect that they will want to capture information about a large % of these.
DISCLAIMER: This was a quick unscientific poll deliberately copied from an informal exercise carried out at one of the RCUK Outcomes Focus Groups – we did not choose the questions ourselves. Please treat the information with caution but we do think it does give some useful indications. We’d like to run another poll in future with different questions to try and get more useful results.
From a Research Organisation perspective the following were generally voted easy to capture and worthwhile to capture:
