The Research Support System (RSS) is a web-based information system which allows staff and research postgraduates to maintain and update their public research profiles.

Profiles can include information on:

  • Research interests
  • Research projects
  • Research publications

Research publications can also be uploaded directly to the institutional repository, TARA, through this system. The system provides a central source for this information within the University thus allowing researchers to maximise their impact while saving time.

Getting started

For more information about using the Research Support System, please join the Blackboard course Research Support System and TARA training. Staff and students can self-enrol by searching for module code "rss_tara".

Further information, tutorial videos and support details can be found on the Library RSS web pages.
