CONVERIS (developed by Avedas) is a Current Research Information System (CRIS) that manages information on research projects, grants, publications, awards, patents, technology offers, and integration in international networks. CONVERIS also supports grant application and project management, including information on cash flows retrieved from finance systems, and it offers tailor made, quality-assured analyses (on research performance, scientific potential, networking and competences) and supports external reporting, marketing and public relations.

cris infrastructure

A Current Research Information System (CRIS) is a database or other information system storing data on current research supported by a funding programme and produced by designated organisations and researchers. CRIS solutions (such as PURE developed by Atira or CONVERIS developed by Avedas) record contracts, projects, publications, study plans and patents related to funded research. Benefits of CRIS solutions include easy access to relevant information and functionality to collect more data to overcome incomplete or inconsistent information.

repository infrastructure
Journal Table of Contents

JournalTOCs is a free, searchable collection of scholarly journal Tables of Contents (TOCs) developed and managed by Heriot-Watt University. JournalTOCs currently includes metadata of TOCs for more than 19,000 journals directly collected from more than 1200 publishers.

repository infrastructure

Publisher and Institutional Repository Usage Statistics 2 (PIRUS2) is a project (led by Mimas) demonstrating technical feasibility to create, record and consolidate usage statistics for individual research articles using data from repositories and publishers. PIRUS2 specifies standards, protocols, infrastructure and an economic model for the recording, reporting and consolidation of online usage statistics.

repository infrastructure

PURE (developed by Atira) is a Current Research Information System (CRIS) that manages information on grant applications, research income, projects, research outputs, research staff, organisational units, and external collaborations. Pure integrates with local systems while also capturing data by work processes that ensure quality and completeness. Pure supports the monitoring of research performance by a broad range of indicators, making forecasts, and benchmarking against world citation averages.

cris infrastructure

Research Outcomes System (ROS) is a web-based system (managed by Research Councils UK) collecting data on the outputs, outcomes and impacts of research including: publications; other research outputs such as new materials, exhibitions and websites; staff development; collaborations and partnerships; communication and dissemination activities; summaries of impact. ROS supports a common approach for gathering quantitative and qualitative evidence of the outcomes and impact of RCUK investments.

repository infrastructure
Symplectic Elements

Symplectic Elements (developed by Symplectic) is an integrated Research Information Management (RIM) system designed to enable academic institutions to collect, contextualise and raise visibility of their research outputs. Symplectic Elements is used by researchers, research managers, repository managers and librarians and integrates with a range of institutional infrastructure including all major repository technologies. It supports automated generation of relevant metadata (eliminating the need to re-enter publication details) and custom reporting.
