Title: PURE: The new GCU Current Research Information System (CRIS)

PURE The new GCU Current Research Information
System (CRIS)
Professor John Marshall Director Academic
Research Development

ENHANCING THE RESEARCH ENVIRONMENT AT GCU
CONTEXT University Research Committee UK
Research Excellence Framework (REF2014) Current
Research Information System (CRIS) Research
Online_at_GCU our digital publication research
repository Improving research quality peer
review and mentoring Caledonian Research
Excellence Development Opportunities (CREDO -
researcher staff development) Understanding and
capturing research impact arising from research
excellence (REF)
3
WHAT WILL WE USE A CRIS FOR ? The focus is on
integrating academic research information in one
place. The same system will be used by Schools
and the University, providing access to a
consistent agreed data set facilitating a better
understanding of GCU research activity based on
up to date information A consistent format for
information capture and reporting will allow the
University to prepare and model its submission
for REF2014 and interface easily with the new REF
IT system .
4
CRIS and REF There is a critical and ongoing
requirement to identify emerging areas of
research excellence (3 and 4 levels) as the
funding consequent on REF2014 will depend on it
(quality is key) It is likely that there will be
more joint submissions to REF2014 in Scotland
we must be able to share information with other
institutional partners where it is in our
interest to do so. Ensuring that reports to SFC,
HESA, RCUK etc reflect current research activity
and its impact

PURE Current Research Information
System Supplier Atira (Denmark)
PURE evolved out of HE in Denmark Atira staff
understand research needs (see
http//atira.dk/en/pure/) It provides a
single research system interface to researchers
who can input their academic information directly
and use it as an integrated resource
6
Key features of PURE Software for research PURE
can fully address CRIS technical and IT legacy
issues relating to UK HEI research activity It
can automatically bring together relevant
supporting data from other GCU IT systems in a
way that is useful to researchers (and already
implemented at other HEIs reduced risk) It is
scaleable and can cope easily with our
present and longer term research volume It has
a REF module for automatic submission to
REF2014

PURE GCU Project Implementation plan June 2011
Scope views of existing IT resources to allow
developer to frame project detail to implement
University CRIS specification Create project
team led by ARD with key representative academic
research stakeholders (and professional support
group staff as appropriate to modules) Regular
communication with Schools and other academic
groups on progress/input/feedback and training.
Implementation in Summer/Autumn 2011 Use to
prepare for REF2014.

Any questions? Exercise What
features/reports would you like to see in PURE?
Discuss in groups and come up with ways in
which better access to information in PURE could
help you in the development of your research
activity Discuss for 20 minutes and report back
