Research Information Management Systems Brief

Why Read This Research

Research information management systems (RIMS) allow institutions to auto-harvest and aggregate faculty research information and data on scholarly activities into a single system of record. Sources of data collection can include internal institutional repositories and external sources, such as common citation services. RIMS functionality typically includes faculty tools to facilitate the collaboration and publication of research, automated population of faculty profiles and faculty management of their curriculum vitae, and compliance tracking across policies, as well as research analytics, benchmarking, and metrics tools.
