Symplectic Elements at Griffith!

Griffith University successfully launched new software Symplectic Elements 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, or simply to get familiar with it. A quick start guide is available as well as detailed user guides and support.
