A centre of expertise in digital information managementwww.ukoln.ac.ukCRIS adoption in UK HE• Symplectic ‘publications’ product launched in 2005– CERIF compliant data model in 2009• 1st UK Pure system - mid 2009 (St Andrews/Aberdeen)• 1st UK CONVERIS system - beginning 2010 (Cranfield)• Intensive CRIS procurement in 2011, slowed down since…– eg between May and October 2011 UK Pure users grew from 7 to 17– 2 new Pure users since March 2012• Now 57 CERIF CRIS users in UK= 33.7% adoption of CERIF in higher education institutions(was 30.7% in March 2012)• Although eg in Russell Group – large majority have CRIS• Also - Research in View (TR), Dspace CRIS...

  • 10. A centre of expertise in digital information managementwww.ukoln.ac.ukManaging research data• Next most immediate issue– under discussion but many putting off decisions until after REF• Difficult to address – large, disparate datasets for differentsubject areas– “don’t know what to do”– “too many variations in research data for a single template”– “academics using range of external data archives”• Pure user group drafting list of required fields• Some concern whether CERIF is keeping up with demands• Bath developing standalone pilot data registry in EPrints – tolink with Pure in longer term (Strathclyde also consideringEPrints, with Pure as catalogue)• Another looking at Dspace
