Conferences on research management and administration organised by EARMA and other domain stakeholders offer a growing set of case studies in areas like research impact and visibility, research data management or Open Science implementation. These evolving areas frequently intersect and interoperate with research information management practices.

In this presentation we will share preliminary findings from a survey jointly administered by euroCRIS and OCLC Research, a leading center for research on the challenges facing libraries in a rapidly changing information technology environment, and we will focus particularly on the interests of research managers and administrators. The goal of the Survey of Research Information Management Practices is to inform the research community about the goals, purposes, and scope of research information management practices, including the creation of institutional registries of research outputs, awards/grants management, academic activity reporting workflows, as well as publicly available researcher expertise profiles. It also examines the institutional stakeholders, workflows, interoperability, and standards in use. The survey aims to gather information on how institutions are currently addressing the challenges and complexities associated to research information management, and is also expected to provide valuable insights into national and regional practices.

This effort builds upon earlier research conducted by euroCRIS and EUNIS in 2016, which examined the use of CRISs and institutional repositories (IRs) among European universities and Research-Performing Organisations (RPOs), as well as their level of technical interoperability. The full survey results will be published by OCLC Research in late spring 2018. Additional information is available at
