Symplectic Elements Product Update: Release v6.3

Our latest release introduces an array of new functionality to improve and expand our new Research Funding Solution, the Reporting Hub, and the Discovery Module. It also includes many other smaller improvements developed in response to feedback and feature requests from our community.

Coming up in June is our Asia Pacific Virtual Showcase, including an overview of our upcoming 2021-2022 roadmap, which you can sign up for here. We are looking forward to announcing dates for our EMEA and NA user meetings soon.

We’re delighted that two clients have already signed-up to be early adopters of the new Research Funding Solution, which builds upon the tried-and-tested functionality of Elements to give institutions one centralised space to easily manage both research information and funding workflows. In this release, we have continued to expand our new suite of pre-award functionality to help streamline internal review & approval processes and make them more transparent by allowing all stakeholders – applicants, reviewers, and administrators – to track the progress of their proposal through the review workflow. We have also improved the management of organisational metadata by introducing a new GRID integration and added a number of new reports.

We have also made a number of other improvements to the Reporting Hub and introduced three new stock reports, including a new version of the NIH Biosketch developed in response to the recent 2021/2022 NIH public access policy update.

In the Discovery Module, we have introduced new labels-based filters to help organisations further tailor the Discovery Module search experience to align with the focus of their organisation so that visitors to the site can identify the perfect co-investigator or collaborator.


Elements elegantly connected our multi-university system providing a
single source of truth throughout OIEx.

Tim Cain, The Ohio Innovation Exchange (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.
