Research Outputs System (ROS)
ROS is UNSW's system for capturing and reporting research publications and outputs. This has replaced the Research Publications (ResPubs) system and includes all data previously entered into ResPubs.
ROS is designed to help reduce the time and effort spent on managing publication and research outputs across the University and offers a number of functionalities to support researchers at UNSW:
- Streamlined, and in many cases automated, publications data entry
- Impact measurements, including H-indexes, citation counts and Altmetrics
- Easy export options that may assist in the creation of publication lists for CVs, grants and promotion applications
- Collecting and collating data for HERDC and other research assessment exercises
- Uploading accurate publication information to the UNSW Research Gateway.
ROS was launched 19 September 2013. Training is being rolled out across UNSW throughout the rest of 2013. Contact your Faculty Outreach Librarian for details.
