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 (or just "OpenAIR") 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". RGU staff can also find further information on RGyoU.

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 refer to the RGyoU pages or get in touch with RGU's general Worktribe support team instead.

To register for a "Worktribe Outputs" training session, contact the Publications Team with the details of the specific session you'd like to attend.

PLEASE NOTE! You must attend an introductory "Getting Started with Worktribe" session before you are able to attend a "Workribe Outputs" session. This is because the "Getting Started" session provides you with access to Worktribe and also gives you a basic understanding of how to use the system. Contact RGU's general Worktribe support team for more details of available "Getting Started" sessions.

Worktribe Outputs Training: Administrators and Support Staff

The Publications Team also provide reporting-focused sessions for support staff. These sessions occur twice a year, in June and December. If you would like to find out more about these sessions, please contact the Publications Team directly.
