Symplectic Elements at Griffith!

Griffith University successfully launched Symplectic Elements in 2019 to collect and manage research outputs. Symplectic Elements replaced the Research Outputs Management module in RIMS.

Academic staff have access to the new system to add, check or manage their research outputs linking to their ORCID and other identifiers. Research outputs are displayed in the Griffith Experts profiles (eligibitly criteria for a public profile apply).
