Symplectic Elements (SE) is a University research information management system. It captures, stores and reuses information about researchers, research outputs (bibliographic and bibliometric), grants, and impact.
It provides data to support assessment, dissemination, open access, and reporting activities, including:
- the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2021
- departmental webpages
- ‘Act on acceptance’
- Researchfish collections
Data is captured from a range of internal and external sources eg CrossRef and PubMed. Users then enrich and curate their own data.
