Australasian Research Management Society (ARMS) 2022

Shaping the Next Normal: New Horizons in Research Management

Wednesday 7 – Friday 9 September 2022

Symplectic is thrilled to be silver partner sponsor for the upcoming Australasian Research Management Society (ARMS) Virtual Conference.

Research management is still a relatively new and evolving field; this evolution has been accelerated due to the global impact of COVID-19 on how we live, work and conduct research. This year’s ARMS conference theme embraces this change and fosters discussions about what the future will look like and the changes in practice that are happening or need to happen to effectively support the research endeavour now and in the future. The theme includes four sub-themes that focus on the key aspects of an excellent and impactful research, science and innovation sector: Research Priorities, Research Funding Challenges & Opportunities, Research Workforce, and Research Infrastructure.

While this year’s event will be delivered in a virtual platform, an in-person Welcome Reception will be scheduled in the evening (for approx. 2 hours) the day prior to the virtual conference, on Tuesday 6 September 2022. Multiple Welcome Receptions are expected to be held across most Chapters of ARMS. The Symplectic team will be on-site at one of the Welcome Receptions – location TBD.


With this partnership, we have the opportunity to position ourselves as
a world leader in the development of the scholarly ecosystem.

Keith Webster, Dean of University Libraries, Carnegie Mellon

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.

“Faculty need only spend perhaps less than an hour a year to prepare and submit their annual reports.”

"Leveraging the interoperability between Symplectic Elements and DSpace has increased policy-driven institutional repository deposits by over 350%."

Elements elegantly connected our multi-university system providing a
single source of truth throughout OIEx.

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.

Floris van der Leest, Victoria University, Melbourne, Australia

[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.
