Title Supporting the Research Process with a CRIS
Abstract The ever-increasing volume of research output requires recording in CRISs. Current CRISs commonly demand re-input of data at various times. This practice does not scale and the effort threshold to input all this metadata is too great and end-users are protesting leading to incomplete, inconsistent and poor-quality data. We propose that three simple measures can overcome these problems. Taking the research process: recording data concerning research at the earliest opportunity in a CERIF(Common European Research Information Format)-CRIS, re-using the data by using the linking relations of CERIF rather than re-inputting and utilising the logic-properties of CERIF to constrain data values to improve quality.
