New functionality in the ARC Research Management System (RMS) – Research Outputs
From early November, the ARC’s Research Management System (RMS) will allow researchers to list research outputs against a user’s RMS profile. Through this, the ARC aims to reduce the burden of repeated manual entry of research outputs during the grant application process. Researchers will be able to auto-populate their research output data into their ARC RMS person profiles and in populating application forms first for Discovery Projects 2020 (i.e. this functionality will not be available for Laureate Fellowships FL19, Future Fellowships FT19, ITRP Hubs IH19 or Centres IC19, or Linkage Projects LP18).
Research Output Data within the RMS Person Profile
Research output data can be added to the RMS ‘Person Profile’ through any of the following methods:
- Link an RMS account with an ORCID account and import the research outputs from the Works section of the user’s ORCID profile
- Upload a BibTex file to RMS and perform a bulk upload of the research outputs contained within it
- Use a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) to automatically harvest research output metadata and create a research output record
- Manually create an individual record per research output within the RMS user profile
Once the data is entered into a researchers RMS person profile, it can be used to auto-populate grant applications without having to manually create and update documents each time a researcher submits an application.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) and a user guide with Instructions for adding Research Outputs to your RMS Profile is available at this ARC webpage: RMS Auto-population of Research Outputs
