Sussex Research Online
SRO was launched in February 2012. It contains publication data imported from various sources on campus, including the previous publication system which was accessed through Sussex Direct.
It is the source of publication information on campus, and feeds information to other campus services such as web profiles for academics and reporting for the REF2014.
Researchers at Sussex will need to ensure new research outputs (articles, books, book chapters, conference papers, etc) are added to SRO. It's easy to add new records to the system and staff based in the Library will check the information before making it live.
