Getting to grips with Researchfish

The deadline for Researchfish submissions – 14 March – is fast approaching. Jaxom Champion, the Department of Medicine’s Research Support Officer, breaks down the essential info that you need to know.

What is Researchfish?

Researchfish is the system used by a number of our funders to gather data about the outputs, outcomes and impacts of research, usually for up to five years after a grant has ended. This allows funders to demonstrate the achievements of research that they are funding. It also aims to make the reporting process as easy as possible for researchers by ensuring that multiple funders are incorporated within the system.

Researchfish can be updated at any point during the year, with most funders requesting a snapshot report once a year. The deadline for the majority of our funders for this year is Thursday 14 March.

What do I need to do?

If you have not already been contacted by Researchfish and the Imperial team, then you will not be required to make a submission. If you are unsure, please get in touch using the contact details below.

If you have been emailed, please log on to update your research outputs and submit your return. We would encourage you to do this as soon as possible to allow for time to update your awards and ensure that relevant outputs can be included.
