University launching new services to benefit researchers
30 Jul 2009
Institutional repository services to store and improve access to published material
New institutional services which will help researchers in their day-to-day work are being launched by the University.
Manchester eScholar, which is being developed and hosted by the John Rylands University Library, will provide a single location for researchers to manage their work and find the work generated by others affiliated with the University.
The simple-to-use services will enable researchers to display and maintain a list of publications on their websites, to cite work using a simple and persistent web address and to manage all forms of their digital scholarly work.
The aim is to sustain and enhance the research reputations of individuals associated with the University and enhance the global research community’s ability to access the University’s research outputs.
The services are also being used as the data source for the Research Profiling Exercise announced in last week’s eUpdate, which will be conducted in the autumn:
Manchester eScholar is currently being populated with information from Schools and Faculties and, when it is complete, researchers will be asked to log in, review and update their information. Instructions on how to do this will be provided in future communications. Help, support and training will be available on request.
