IRIS displays researcher information from University core systems: HR, Banner, KRISTAL and Symplectic. The researcher information relates to HR, Outputs, Supervised students, Doctoral degrees, Grants, Impact, Professional activities, etc.
An AAM (Annual Academic Meeting) and a Researcher report containing the information can be downloaded.
The system is also used to nominate and review outputs as part of the annual review exercise.
It serves to record impact and the associated evidence/collaboration (IRIS supported the University’s REF2021 submission).
All staff in academic or research roles (classified in the SAP HR system as “ACAD” or “RESE”) automatically have access to IRIS.
Users with this basic role can only view their own information in IRIS, but can nominate outputs for review and record and edit examples of impact. An editable Annual Academic Meeting report can be downloaded, which is pre-populated with some information from IRIS.
Additional administrator roles cover the operation of the internal outputs review process (including the creation of reviewers), the University Annual (external) Outputs Review and the management of impact records. In addition, Heads of School for example have access to information for all staff in their School.
IRIS is not available to non-University members.
