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.

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.
