See on Scoop.itDual impact of research; towards the impactelligent university

Researchfish is a simple to use Research Outcomes System designed to enable a researcher to report once across multiple funders, re-use their data for their own use and; have control on who sees and access’s their data. Researchers can use their Portfolio data to create CV’s . A simple to use one click environment for adding research outcomes to be stored and or attributed to an award. Research outputs are defined into thirteen easily recognised types. A researcher, or one of their delegates, can add, edit and delete entries, and attribute entries to awards they hold or to one of their CV’s held in the Researchfish Portal.


Researchfish e-Val is the interface used by funding organisations to report on the outcomes attributed to them. It has a permissions based interface which is simple to use and a comprehensive reporting capability removing the need for lengthy and expensive data cleaning and analysis. Funding organisations benefit from a greater accuracy of validated data from source, enable accurate real time reporting and drastically reduce the administrative burden of evaluation.
