Professional Development Opportunities

The 2018 Professional Development Calendar is available:

Library Lowdown

Advanced Features of CRO

This month’s topic is about CRO, and some of its more advanced features.

Once you go into your profile you can click on the Network tab to create graphical representations to demonstrate your links with collaborators, Research Organisations, and External Research units.

You can even create a map of the countries where your collaborators are from.

Individual researchers can enhance the data contained in these graphic representations by adding further information to your CRO profile, and your research outputs.  The accuracy of the map is dependent on the data in the individual research outputs. This extra data can then be used to demonstrate engagement and impact.
