Effective Research Management with Elements & Figshare

In this webinar, we cover how using Symplectic Elements as a research information management system, integrated with Figshare for Institutions as a research repository, drives a holistic approach to research management. Together, Elements and Figshare provide a complete solution for collecting, storing, showcasing and reporting on all research outputs and scholarly activities, with a focus on open access compliance and engagement.

Find out how:

  • Institutions can structure and connect scholarly information throughout the research lifecycle by reducing administrative burden, deriving powerful new insights, maximizing data reuse, and showcasing the real-world impact of research.
  • Elements uses intelligent data harvesting to continuously identify and match research outputs from Figshare and other data sources.
  • Bidirectional integration between Elements and Figshare streamlines open access workflows to drive engagement and meet institutional goals.
  • Public profiles showcase successes and drives innovation and collaboration within or outside your organization.

I cannot overstate how pleased we have been.
We have to have confidence to work with a partner
for at least 5 years on a project of this size.

The University measures the individual research activity of academic staff. This Measure of Research Activity (MoRA) requires the collection of publication data from faculty. Symplectic Elements supports this beautifully.

[Elements] will help to bring transparency to the richness of thought showcased within non-traditional publications, providing a more holistic representation of faculties’ scholarly work.

Caleb Smith, University of Michigan

Feedback to date has been extremely positive from all levels across the University, with individual academics and colleagues actively promoting the ease of use of the system.
