Research, Grants & Publications
Staff and postgraduate students who are involved in research have access to various systems that can help them manage their funding and publications.
MIS, KRISTAL and QlikView
KRISTAL is a 'one-stop-shop' for research proposal creation and grant management covering both pre and post-award. It also handles European awards and co-location awards spanning more than one academic unit.
Management Information System (MIS) reports using the QlikView Tool allow academic investigators and research staff to review and analyse their portfolio of grants. They include data from grants (held in KRISTAL) and budgetary information (from SAP). These are available through KRISTAL or through the QlikView access point.
Please contact your Faculty Research Innovation Office to gain authorisation and schedule any training required.

The Publications system is the University's central repository for recording publications and professional activities carried out by University members of staff and postgraduates. One of the principal uses of the system is to provide data for the University's submission to the HEFCE Research Excellence Framework, the new process for assessing the quality of research in UK higher education institutions.
The Publications system also allows the uploading of texts that are in the process of being published or have been published, into a system called White Rose Research Online (WRRO).
WRRO houses research outputs from the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York. The repository aims to:
- promote the impact of research output from the White Rose Consortium partners
- make research easy to find through Google and other general and academic search service
- provide a long term home for research outputs
- bring research to new audiences, inside and outside academia
- add to the growing, worldwide body of openly available scholarly content

Help guides are available from within the system, however if you feel it would be helpful to have some training, the trainer is Yunas Mohammed and he can be contacted on 0113 34 33622 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
