Research information systems are used to track and evaluate faculty and researcher activity. Drawing primarily from publication data, these systems show relationships between people, fields of study, and institutions. They also illustrate areas of study and emerging interdisciplinary potential.  Universities and other research institutions are increasing relying on this information to inform promotion and tenure decisions, productivity analytics, research benchmarking, expertise identification, as well as collaboration and research networking.

This ARCS workshop will present an overview of the strengths and features of several public facing research information management systems, such as VIVO, Pure, and Harvard Profiles. Use cases will be employed to demonstrate different ways of using these tools, such as generating meaningful data visualizations and producing impact metrics. The workshop will include a hands-on component, allowing the participants to interact with APIs for different projects.

The workshop will also include a section on how well structured data in research information management systems can help identify funding sources, collaborators, media appearances, and other opportunities. The session will emphasize the role of librarians and strategies for leveraging their unique expertise. Finally, attendees will participate in developing a communications strategy to articulate the messages shared with researchers and other stakeholders on campus.
