The annual submission period for UKRI, CRUK, NIHR, NC3R’s, BHF and other funders is 3rd February to 12th March 2020 during which time PIs need to use their Researchfish account to make a return. To help with this process, research outputs can be entered into Symplectic Elements until Thursday 6th February, after which there will be a bulk uploaded to Researchfish.

From Friday 7th February, Symplectic Elements will not be linked to Researchfish and any additional inputs 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 6th February, 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. 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).

Information on how to link grants with publications in Symplectic Elements is available in Moodle and details about the annual submission process on Researchfish can be found on the Research Operations Office website.
