Research@Oxford provides a system to identify current researchers and research information from across the University classified by subject and organisational structure. The online application uses the Discovery module produced by the Symplectic developers at Digital Science to repurpose the data collected within Oxford’s Symplectic Elements. Users of Research@Oxford search by free text or keywords without needing prior knowledge about the University’s structure. Oxford researchers curate the information displayed in Research@Oxford and maximize the discoverability of their research activities by editing their Elements account: adding biographical information, tagging their profile with labels/key words, claiming publications and grants, and adding professional activities.

Research@Oxford went live internally on 6 February and this session will be an introduction to the system.

What you will need:

You will need to provide your own computer ideally with the Microsoft Teams desktop app installed, otherwise with a browser (must be Chrome or Edge). You will need a speaker and microphone for listening and speaking. You need to be online with a reliable internet connection.’

Notice of recording:

Each live online training session will be recorded for accessibility and inclusivity reasons and will be shared with all attendees after the session. It may also be put onto Canvas (Oxford University’s virtual learning environment) to enable other Oxford University members with SSO to view it.
