Intelligent data harvesting

Intelligent data harvesting means Elements is always working for you in the background, continuously identifying and matching research outputs from a wide range of sources including Figshare for Institutions to automatically populate and update records in Elements. 

Credit where credit’s due

Increase the discoverability of publications, researchers, and institutional impact, building a comprehensive view of all research outputs that ensures nothing goes unnoticed. With Figshare’s support for hundreds of file formats, including non-traditional outputs such as videos, graphs and presentations, data can be visualised to bring research to life.

Symplectic and Figshare are both part of Digital Science, allowing our product and implementation teams to collaborate seamlessly and ensuring a joined-up experience for our clients that utilises common technologies and processes.

Drive open access engagement

Elements identifies suitable research outputs which are not yet openly available, and lets researchers easily deposit them to Figshare directly from Elements with the push of a button. Not only does Elements make it simple for your researchers to deposit files to your institutional repository, it also offers reporting tools and dashboards allowing administrators to identify work that should be made openly available, monitor open access engagement and compliance, and take actions on researchers’ behalf. 

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.

We wanted to create a single, multi-university resource that provides
enhanced visibility into expertise, equipment and research
support services and available IP.

Tim Cain, Ohio Innovation Exchange

This tool connects our scholarly and research expertise with audiences like media,
prospective graduate students, and academic collaborators, while simultaneously
helping faculty keep track of the very important work they do. It is a game-changer for U of T.

The deeply integrated environment we now have will greatly enhance
our ability to manage the range of repository activities and strengthen
our position in preparing for any future research assessment exercises.

Digital Development Manager, University of Sussex

It helps keep us organised and keeps everything in one place.

I think the most important feature Symplectic Elements came with was interoperability
The fact that it had that flow through profiles to the repository was really, really valuable for us.
