Worktribe Outputs

Learn how to add your outputs to RGU's research information system

What is Worktribe Outputs?

Worktribe is a research information system - a database that holds information about researchers, research grants, projects, outputs and impact. Worktribe Outputs is the system module that deals specifically with research outputs, such as journal articles, book chapters, conference papers and research data.

There are two main purposes for the Worktribe Outputs database:

  • To keep a complete record of all the outputs created by researchers (both staff and students) associated with the university.

  • To help the Publications Team support researchers who need to comply with the Open Access policies of certain funding bodies and the REF.

The Worktribe platform is used both as RGU's research information system and also as its repository, though the repository part is usually referred to as OpenAIR@RGU instead. The main Worktribe system is accessible only to certain RGU staff, but OpenAIR is publicly accessible. You can find more information about the repository in our OpenAir guide.

Using Worktribe Outputs

RGU staff who have been given access to Worktribe can use this link to log on to the system. Online guides for using the system are available through the main menu, by going to "Help" and then selecting "Help Topics".

Support for adding or handling outputs on Worktribe (and OpenAIR) is provided by the Publications Team. If you have questions regarding other parts of the system, such as your personal profile or how to handle projects, please get in touch with RGU's general Worktribe support team instead.

Worktribe Outputs Training

Training for Worktribe Outputs for academic staff and research students is provided on a monthly basis by the Publications Team. All sessions are delivered via Teams. If you would like to register to attend a session, you should:

  1. Ensure that you have first attended a "Getting Started With Worktribe" session, which is when you are set up with access to Worktribe. These sessions are run by RGU's general Worktribe support team. Contact them directly to find out more about when these sessions are scheduled.
  2. Contact the Publications Team with the details of the specific session for which you'd like to register. We can then sort out your registration for you and will send you a link to the Teams meeting.

You are welcome to attend these Outputs training sessions as many times as you'd like - just contact the Publications Team as above to indicate that you'd like to register for a refresher.
