Abstract

The Research Information Management in the United States two-part report series provides a first-of-its-kind documentation of RIM practices at US research universities that presents a thorough examination of RIM practices, goals, stakeholders, and system components. Research information management (RIM) is a rapidly growing area of investment in US research universities. While RIM practices are mature in Europe and other locales in support of nationalized reporting requirements, RIM practices at US research universities have taken a different—and characteristically decentralized—course. A complex environment characterized by multiple use cases, stakeholders, and systems has resulted. This report provides a landscape overview of the state of research information management in the United States, makes sense of the complexity, and offers recommendations targeted at University leaders and other institutional decision makers. Part 1—Findings and Recommendations This report provides much-needed context for institutional leaders to examine their own local practices by proposing: - A summary of six discrete RIM use cases - A RIM system framework - Recommendations for RIM stakeholders Part 2—Case Studies  This companion report offers an in-depth narrative of the RIM practices at five US research institutions:- Penn State University- Texas A&M University - Virginia Tech- UCLA- University of Miami
