Symplectic, a provider of research information management software and services, has launched an addition to its flagship product, Elements.
The firm says the new module will allow Symplectic’s clients to design, share and report on internal and external research assessments, streamlining what were traditionally time-intensive, paper-based activities.
The new module repurposes data the system has previously captured on their behalf – either from public, private or licenced data sources. This removes the need for the repetitive manual form-filling common in other researcher assessment and faculty reporting systems.
Jonathan Breeze, CEO of Symplectic, said: 'All of our institutional and funder clients are being asked to demonstrate the quality and impact of their research. Our new Assessment module has been designed so that those questions can be answered without increasing administrative burden on researchers. We’re confident our clients around the world will make great use of our latest functionality.'
Alongside the Assessment Module, the latest version of Elements also includes a completely redesigned user interface, offering an intuitive experience to researchers and faculty, the company says.
Key interface enhancements include:
- Simplified system navigation;
- Greater visibility of the researcher profile; and
- A new carousel with direct links to a prioritised list of tasks.
Symplectic is part of the Digital Science group of companies.
