researchfish is an online facility that enables research funders and Research Organisations to track the impacts of their investments, and researchers to log the outputs, outcomes and impacts of their work.
It is currently used by over 100 funders in the UK, North America and Europe to gather information from researchers about the outcomes from their work. All seven UK Research Councils use researchfish.
RCUK is actively working with Researchfish Ltd to implement better interoperability with the research information systems used by Research Organisations (ROs) by Autumn 2015. Further information about the progress of the interoperability project can be found here
Use of researchfish data in publications 2009-2016 is available here .
For a full overview of researchfish’s functionality, please see the researchfish website.
NB: Other funders may differ from the Research Councils in how they use researchfish e.g. they may have different submission periods or compliance requirements. Award holders who are required to submit outcomes to other funders should therefore approach them directly for further guidance.
