Leverage the power of Symplectic Elements as a Research Information Management System to automatically populate public profiles that showcase your greatest assets: the expertise and experience of your researchers and faculty.

Public Profiles 39

Promote what you do best
We repurpose the rich and often unique data already collected within Elements to populate fully-rounded profiles that showcase what you do best.

Our enhanced profiles bring together biographical information, linked publications, grants, and professional & teaching activities, allowing researchers to showcase the full scope of their scholarly activities and expertise within a clean and intuitive search & discovery interface that highlights your organisation’s brand.

Public Profiles 27

Make your expertise accessible and engaging

The Discovery module is accessibility compliant and built with mobile-responsive design in mind, ensuring that your public profiles are available to the widest audience when and wherever they need it. Easy embedding of video and media content within profiles helps bring research to life.

Public Profiles 82

Enable collaboration and innovation
Researchers can easily signal on their profile what they are available for, be it project work, mentorship, supervision, or collaboration, making it simple to find the right people to drive your research forward. Users can
search by name, keyword, tags and titles, and profiles are designed with SEO in mind.

And our interactive Collaboration Network visualisation lets users easily view and navigate connections and relationships across institutional networks, helping users to identify potential collaborators, mentorship opportunities, or peer reviewers.

The Elements Platform 6

Automated harvesting

The real power of Elements lies in its ability to continuously harvest data from the widest range of sources in the industry, giving users a view of your researchers and faculty that is in depth, in context, and up to date.

Researchers can use their public profiles not only to exhibit their publications, but also demonstrate impact and expertise through items such as citation counts and bibliometrics, leadership and teaching activities, and even streaming media such as lectures, presentations or panels.

Public Profiles 76

Enable innovation and drive R&D

Maximise the usage of high-value facilities by creating profiles for institutional equipment, technology and services. These profiles can include custom fields (such as availability, settings or location), and be linked to other records (such as people who have been trained on it, or research outcomes that have been made possible through it).

Going beyond standard profiles gives you the tools to open up potential new revenue sources and to foster meaningful connections and collaborations with industry partners and other research organisations.

It is critical to our state’s economy that we utilise every aspect of our knowledge
and innovation talent across the public and private sectors. We’re incredibly proud
of what we’ve created with OIEx − better connecting the experts and resources at our
state research universities to the industries that can utilise them to push their breakthrough ideas to fruition.
