The National Council of University Research Administrators (NCURA)

NCURA was founded in 1959 and has since become an internationally recognised resource for “professional development, knowledge and leadership in research administration”. The NCURA Annual Meeting facilitates the advancement of research administration through the exchange of knowledge and experiences.

XXXII Annual Charleston Conference

From relatively humble beginnings in 1980, the Charleston Conference has grown into a massive gathering of over 1400 librarians, vendors and publishers. It now serves as an informal annual gathering for individuals from different areas to discuss and debate issues facing the sector.

You can find out more on their website.

The Symplectic vendor showcase was at table 64 throughout the event.

How we can help

Elements has dedicated functionality supporting the needs of both administrators and librarians. If you would like to find out more or arrange a personal meeting with one of our team, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

The automatic search features are a bonus. I really like the way the new entries arrive automatically, and all I have to do is respond to the prompt to approve them. Navigation in the new release is intuitive and friendly. Linking directly to DOIs and full text is convenient and makes it easy to access and share my own research.

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.

[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.

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.
