Support for staff
The following webpages and links are mainly focused on internal services to support researchers at Nottingham Trent University.
- Vitae website: Vitae champions the personal, professional and career development of doctoral researchers and research staff.
- Researcher training and career development (NTU Intranet): A set of resources for NTU researchers, this page is internal only and requires an NTU login to access.
- Concordat at NTU: We support the principles of the Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers.
Please see the Publications Strategy and Publication Good Practice Guidelines: Standard Outputs for information on publication.
Once an output is published, please visit PubSub to record your output so it will be available on NTU's Institutional (IRep), which is an open-access database that contains information about research projects and publications that NTU staff are working on. PubSub is easy to use and the guidelines provide information on how to use it, and how to access it off-campus. If you have any questions please contact your Research Support Librarian.
Research Councils UK Funded Research and Open Access
Our guide on open access and funded research provides information on the RCUK Policy on Open Access and the NTU open-access fund. You should aim to complete the NTU open-access fund form before submitting your paper to a journal.
Following consultation with your Research Support Librarian, you will then need to submit the form to your School Research Committee. The NTU Open Access Publishing Process Flowchart may assist you when considering how to make your work open access.
RCUK Submission Period on Researchfish®
The Research Councils are now using a single, harmonised system for the collection of information on the outcomes of Research Council-funded research. This is a system called Researchfish®.
Grant holders can enter information into Researchfish® at any time, and continue to do so even after their grant has ended. The Research Councils are now following, however, a common annual timetable for grant holders to confirm that the information in the system is complete and up to date, and the next data-gathering period will be 6 February 2017 to 16 March 2017 at 4pm. Non-compliant researchers will lose eligibility to apply for further awards from any Research Council and any current awards will have their payments withheld until such time as the PI becomes compliant.
All current Je-S registered students are now included in Researchfish®. The details of students related to RCUK grants have been taken from the Je-S student data portal. Students are asked to complete and submit their return themselves as it is their data. However, a sanctions policy for students has not been agreed.

Scopus is a large and continually updated abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed academic content in the fields of Life Sciences (4,000+ titles), Physical Sciences (7,000+), Health Sciences (6,000+) and Social Sciences and Humanities (5,000+). Scopus provides a range of tools to track trends, patterns, and citation and research impact. On-campus access is direct; off-campus access requires University username and password.
There are opportunities for our undergraduate students to get involved in the University's research activity. The SPUR programme gives students the chance to assist in research projects during the summer vacation.
