In order to address the challenges pointed out by the RAE, a Roadmap for Research was created and it includes measures to improve TUT’s publication activity. At the same time, the importance of publications in the national allocation of research funding has grown.
TUT Library has been in a key role in the management of publication activities since the beginning of the 1990’s. At the moment, the library is managing the procurement of a new current research information system (CRIS). The CRIS will increase the visibility of TUT’s academic activities by linking research outputs to projects and groups. The research outputs will be better presented in the context of research areas. Also in order to enhance the visibility and impact of TUT research outputs, the library is boosting open access publishing and encouraging research data management through national storage service.
In order to support the development of TUT’s publication activities, the library created an information package called “Publication activities analyses”. The aim of the package is to give tools and support to the departments and researchers to develop their publishing activities and research skills related to promoting research outputs. Additionally, new web pages which are organized according to the life cycle of the research process presenting the library’s research support services were launched.
