We are pleased to announce Oklahoma State University has selected Symplectic Elements as their research information management platform. Seeking a more holistic understanding of research across the university the team at Oklahoma State plan to use Elements to:

  • Aggregate and deduplicate publications
  • Include humanities in their assessment exercises
  • Easily import and export data
  • Retain data ownership
  • Develop custom assessment templates
  • Create custom modules at the department/college level

In an age of public knowledge and interdisciplinary research... it is really important
to make ourselves available. We need something that can make that information come
to the surface easily but also in a way that people can browse and search.

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.

Caleb Smith, Senior Strategy Manager for Research Intelligence & Analytics, University of Michigan

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

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.

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.
