Mark your calendars for an upcoming webinar titled, “The Growing Use of Research Information Management Systems.”

The trends are shifting where institutions are taking advantage of researcher information management systems and current research information systems. There are many benefits to this. It improves collaboration across institutions or international boundaries and can track productivity or justify resource allocations. With proper deployment of these tools, knowledge can be expanded in a more cost-effective and efficient way.

This 90 minute webinar is offered by the National Federation of Advanced Information Services (NFAIS). Webinar attendees will hear from both public and private sector providers addressing questions like:

  • How such services can support and benefit the researcher’s activities
  • The types of metadata (from providers) necessary to support these systems
  • The kinds of data that can be derived from and combined in these systems
  • The roles of identifiers in the disambiguation of profiles across various platforms
  • The expectations of these services from an institutional standpoint and the role these services play in productivity assessment
  • How faculty/researchers benefit from these types of services and how much of the data input by a researcher is portable

Register here for the December 10, 2015 webinar.
