A ResearchNow data administrator has the authority to add and modify research outputs within ResearchNow, regardless of the affiliated college. Additionally, they can create, maintain, and verify metadata about any research output.
The core responsibility of a data administrator involves active participation in the verification of workflow for each research output. This entails thorough validation of the research output metadata against the published or authorised version, subsequently facilitating its display on the ResearchNow Portal, where it becomes visible on the respective researcher's profile.
Furthermore, data administrators play a pivotal role in rectifying metadata related to research outputs. This includes tasks such as rectifying attribution inaccuracies, consolidating duplicate entities, and adjusting publication visibility through open access mechanisms. It is important to note that the capability to edit verified outputs is restricted exclusively to data administrators.
