How will data get into the Professional Activities Module?

A member of staff in the Library will be assisting for three months with the population of professional activities for a selection of SGUL’s researchers.
Due to the time constraints of this project the library will focus on populating the activities for 90 researchers. Following the completion of the project
(31st July 2014), responsibility to maintain your professional activities in the CRIS will be handed over to researchers. All researchers with an active
profile in the CRIS may start to populate their Professional Activity profiles. A brief guide will soon be available. Please contact the CRIS Support &
Development Team via if you would like a copy.”


What are the benefits of using the Professional Activities Module?


· It is possible to export the data entered as lists (file formats currently available are Word, pdf and csv).

· Keeping your professional activities up to date will help the institution better understand the research expertise and experience of researchers, and
enable the production of reports on these aspects of activity.
