We are developing a digital repository in partnership with Academic Research Development. It will store the outputs of publicly funded research projects and make them available to an external audience.
It brings together the output of the University’s research activity in one place and at the same time helps raise internal awareness of what we do in research.
The repository will give researchers worldwide access to our research output, which helps promote citation and will foster collaboration via the publication alert functionality of the system.
It is called ResearchOnline @ GCU, http://researchonline.gcu.ac.uk/ and was formally launched on 2nd February 2011.
In the coming months academic staff will be asked to submit details of their research publications that have appeared since RAE2008 for inclusion in the repository
The University research committee will use peer reviewed quality research publications deposited in the repository as part of the planning leading up to the submission to the UK Research Excellence Framework in 2014.
We have more detailed information on bibliometrics, including journal citation data, h-index and other metrics in the digital Footprint section of PILOT. You will need to log in to GCU Learn to use this. Any feedback on the module is welcome, contact Marion Kelt (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Make sure your publications are included
To be sure of consideration in the REF mock exercise, staff should ensure that their publications are submitted to the Library by contacting your librarian or email to email@example.com.
Personalised staff pages
Staff can set up a personalized “select works” page for their outputs including professional and other non-academic publications. See an example of a select works page on the research online pages.
