PUBLICATIONS DATABASE - PROFESSIONAL ACTIVITIES

This new module within the publications database allows all academic staff to enter and record information about all their external research activities (e.g. membership of funding panels, external committees, awards and prizes, journal editorship, conference organisation, invited talks, external visits) and external engagement/impact-related activities they are involved in against specific headings.

It is envisaged that this will include a log of external engagement and other impact-related activities, thus providing the capability to capture and maintain a record of such activities which can be used, along with other information in Symplectic, to feed into academic staff annual research reviews, as well as assisting preparations for the next REF.  The information in this module would have been helpful for constructing REF5 narratives and particularly for impact case studies (providing evidence) and drafting impact templates.
