The annual submission period for UKRI, NIHR, BHF and other funders is 1st February to 11th March 2021 during which time PIs need to use their Researchfish account to submit a return on their research outputs. To help with this process, links from grants to research outputs can be entered into Symplectic Elements until Friday 15th January 2021, after which there will be a bulk uploaded to Researchfish. 

From 15th January, Symplectic Elements will not be linked to Researchfish and any additional links, and the outputs themselves, will need to be made into Researchfish directly during the submission period. Therefore please encourage PIs to include their research outputs in Symplectic Elements by 15th January, as this will help them during the submission period as their data will have been preloaded into Researchfish when they have to submit their return. Details about how to link grants with publications can be found on the Moodle site.

Note that the research outputs being uploaded from Symplectic Elements to Researchfish are journal articles, conference proceedings and data sets where they have a unique identifier (i.e. DOI). Links established during the Open Access process are now passed to Researchfish continuously through the year and will be prepopulated already in Researchfish for PIs.
