In late 2006, both the University of Melbourne and the University of Queensland produced public research portals based on administrative data from central administrative systems, including Human Resources, Finance, Research, and Student Systems. The purpose of these portals is to publicly communicate the research of each researcher, and in the case of UQ, the research profile of each research group and organisational unit. The intended audience for the research portal include the media, industry, potential graduate students, and other researchers.
|About the presenters:||Ken Richardson is the Executive Officer (Research) at The University of Queensland. He has worked in research management for the past ten years following a shorter career in librarianship. Many of his roles during that period have focused on effectively tracking research activity and delivering data, indicators and information relevant to performance tracking, strategic planning, external promotion and statutory reporting.|
