Current research systems

ֱ Research Data Manager (ֱRDM) allows all ֱ researchers to store and share active research data safely and securely with internal and external collaborators. ֱRDM is also the university's thesis submission and tracking service, and integrates with the university research repository eSpace.
MyResearch Ethics delivers digital workflows for tasks associated with obtaining ethics approval for human and animal research. The system is now used for submitting and evaluation of everything from new applications to annual reporting.
Impact Tracker is an easy-to-use platform to help plan, capture, and report on research impact and engagement. The platform helps researchers to collect, store, and organise evidence of all types of impact and engagement activities. Impact Tracker projects can be created inside Impact Tracker or via ֱRDM.
Digital Research Notebooks (DRN) are provisioned through ֱ Research Data Manager (ֱRDM), and offer a mobile, connected and secure alternative to paper-based notebooks. DRN can be used to document all aspects of research.
The Research Infrastructure Management System (RIMS) is a centralised platform for researchers to locate infrastructure and services at a range of facilities and laboratories across several ֱ locations. The RIMS platform provides a common entry point, and a consistent method for booking use of instruments and ordering related consumables and services.
