Digital Science is very pleased to sponsor CRIS 2022 on May 12-14, and will have representatives from both Symplectic and Dimensions on-site throughout the event in Dubrovnik. If you’d like to set up time to meet with us, please get in touch.
CRIS 2022 is organised by euroCRIS in cooperation with the Ministry of Science and Education of the Republic of Croatia (MSE) and with the help of University Computing Centre, University of Zagreb (SRCE).
CRIS 2022 is the fifteen edition in a biennial series of conferences devoted to improving the availability of and access to research information systems across Europe. The target audience includes managers of research-performing and/or funding institutions, evaluators, librarians, ICT experts, as well as policy makers. euroCRIS is a non-profit professional association of CRIS experts and custodian of the Common European Research Information Format (CERIF).
“Respondents were asked to indicate their level of satisfaction with their current RIM system, with options ranging from very satisfied to not at all satisfied… Elements from Symplectic has the highest satisfaction rate at 91%.”
In order to examine how research institutions worldwide are applying research information management (RIM) practices, OCLC Research partnered with euroCRIS to conduct a web-based survey…yielding 381 responses from 44 countries, demonstrating the global nature of research information management activities.
The report details the complexity of RIM practices and examines how commercial and open-source platforms are becoming widely implemented across regions, coexisting with a large number of region-specific solutions as well as locally developed systems. It also considers the urgent need for system-to-system interoperability—with both internal and external systems—and demonstrates how the use of identifiers, standards, and protocols are perceived as most valuable when they can also facilitate interoperability.
