How Elements is being used at Australasian institutions

Our APAC User Meeting was held virtually this year, with some of our clients kindly demonstrating how Elements is being used at their institutions to streamline research data management and administration, derive powerful new insights, and showcase the real-world impact of their work. You can catch up on client showcases below.


Public Profiles

Liz Martyn (Research Advisor) & Mary Cosson (Research Data Manager) of Lincoln University discusses how they worked with the Symplectic team to make a Public Profiles hub that showcased Lincoln’s research work, and Helen Slaney (Senior Coordinator Scholarly Publications) at LaTrobe University takes us through LaTrobe’s outreach programme to engage researchers and faculty in filling in their public profiles.



Hosting Services 

Tatiana Vizcaino (Process & Development Analyst, University of Technology Sydney), talks about migrating to a hosted instance of Elements.



Rachel Chidlow, Research Services Manager at University of Auckland, describes the process of upgrading while on a hosted instance of Elements.



Many thanks to all speakers for their time!


We’ll have more client showcases next week at the Symplectic EMEA User Group, which there is still time for you to sign up for.

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.

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.
