Research information management systems (RIM) play a crucial role in research reporting, showcasing and decision making. Scholarly communication activities are scattered in various locations within and outside the organisation. It is very much essential to collect all the research artifacts such as faculty who do research, projects, publications, patents and research metrics, etc. According to the All India Survey of Higher Education 2019-2020(AISHE 2020), the Indian higher education system comprises 1043 universities, 42,343 colleges. it is a challenging task for the funding agencies, policymakers to identify the potential organisations and individuals for various multidisciplinary research. To address the current challenges, the Information and Library Network Centre (INFLIBNET) initiated a research information management system called “Indian Research Information Network System(IRINS)” in the year 2017. IRINS has been implemented as a national level research information management system under National Mission on Education through ICT. IRINS supports the academic and R&D organisations in India to aggregate all the research related information and showcases the research progress of the faculty members, department, and organization to the scholarly community. IRINS provided to all the higher education and R&D organisation “software as service”. One of the key components of a research information management system is integration with internal and external systems. IRINS has integrated with an internal data sources such as institutional repositories for interchange the publication metadata. Also, integrated with external sources such as ORCID, Google Scholar, Scopus ID, BASE, Altmetrics, Scite for publications and other metrics.
