Service Updates

The Publications Team have finished migrating our internal records to the Worktribe research information system and are now focusing on tidying these before we begin rolling out training for researchers on how to use the new system. Meanwhile, we are continuing to work on migrating our repository records to Worktribe as well. We apologise for any inconvenience caused during this transition period and we will continue to keep you updated of our progress. If you have any questions, please contact the Publications Team.


The repository currently contains 3,465 links between Schools and outputs (some records are linked to multiple Schools and therefore included in this figure more than once). Some examples of recent additions to the repository include the following outputs:
