Supporting The Research User [A9]


The UK Research Councils and the Arts and Humanities Research Board are running a joint project to deliver electronic submission facilities to researchers and research administrators within universities. In parallel, the concept of a research councils web portal is being developed, to provide joined-up access to a wide range of research council information and services. This workshop will review progress on these developments and explore the issues surrounding the introduction of these new facilities. Areas for discussion include:

  • How will RC services integrate with existing institutional portals?
  • What are the infrastructure issues e.g. browser and operating systems supported?
  • How can potential users become involved in these developments?
