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. 

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

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.

Floris van der Leest, Victoria University, Melbourne, Australia

[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.
