Before a research output can appear on the ResearchNow Portal it needs to go through an internal verification process. When a research output has been entered into the system and is ready to be verified it has a Status of “For validation”, which indicates that it is ready to be verified internally. The ResearchNow Support team is responsible for verifying the research output for accuracy and completeness.
After the research output is verified to the extent that it can appear on the ResearchNow Portal, the ResearchNow Support team sets its Status to “Validated”. After validation, the research output appears on the ResearchNow Portal. Once a research output is Validated you will no longer be able to edit it.
