  • Benchmarking

Benefits of registering your research

A research register provides the scholarly community with current awareness of pre-publication information and those involved in various research activities with the potential for further networking. It provides the industrial and corporate communities with early information on new areas for application and development. It also allows the researcher to "stake a claim" on a particular area of research.

Why electronic?

Delivered via the Internet, a research register has functional possibilities not achievable in print format - e.g. it can be "live" in content (i.e. updated on a continuous basis); it can be linked to other forms of content and databases; it is capable of advanced searching but is also browsable; and it is easily accessible.
