Let the world discover your institution’s expertise

with public profiles by Symplectic

Public Profiles

Researcher profiles made easy

The Elements Platform automatically (and continuously) collects and harvests your institution’s (or department’s!) research information. Using that data we can then create researcher profiles that populate automatically. You can then empower your faculty and researchers to take charge of their own CVs and public profiles ultimately saving you time, effort and frustration.

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.
