Tips to optimise your Researchfish submission

Consider the following when working on your Researchfish submission:

  • Connect your Researchfish account to your ORCID account to enable data to be harvested from ORCID ready to attribute in Researchfish
  • Use persistent unique identifiers for your outcomes
  • Read funder specific guidance
  • Aim to provide a well-rounded overview of what the award has produced
  • Utilise more than one category of information and consider all the areas of impact which have come from your award
  • Answer any additional questions which have been assigned to your award by your funder
  • Add outcomes at any point throughout the year, not just in the submission period
