Information about the Research Information System
The research information system (RIS) will manage the research information based on the research-activities of the academic research staff currently, centrally and clearly. Data is entered once into the RIS and can be used multiple times, for example on websites, project proposals or reports. This avoids double data storage and the associated additional work Additionally to the legal obligations for documentation of research activities, it increases the positive reputation of the university.
The improved findability of information supports everyone: Researchers looking for partners, companies for the allocation of research-projects, the public by transparency and general information on their university.
Research information is requested by different interest groups. Exemplary, some of them are listed in the following table:
|Research-results, projects and activities||Generation of reports||Finding of partners||
|Finding of research partners||
The RIS is based on the "Core-research dataset" (CERIF data model), but also allows subject-specific classifications. The existing IT-Systems of the university are connected to the RIS as data-suppliers, as well as publicly accessible, external data sources.
A differentiated role/rights model enables the distribution of tasks in the RIS. For the creation, maintenance and evaluation of research information, the users have access - according to their status - to information in current and valid form. The researchers themselves control the data and publication rights for different user groups in this system.
The software PURE of the danish software-producer Atira (meanwhile belonging to Elsevier) appeared to be the best solution for the university Hamburg. PURE uses a standardised, future-proof data structure according to european CERIF standard (Common European Research Information Format) and is continually developed further. Numerous interfaces enable the integration of existing systems and databases. PURE is an approved, university specific solution that already has been installed more than 85 times in the North-European region.
