Faculty Activity Reporting (FAR) data entry and collection is available as of Wednesday 3/21. Full-Time faculty are expected to complete their FAR based on the schedule provided by their department and college. For high level due dates please see the myElements Timeline.
Faculty will receive ongoing support to ensure their transition to myElements is a smooth process. Academic Technology, in collaboration with the UNH Library, will provide scalable, responsive, high-quality support for faculty to access myElements. This includes self-directed and trainer/librarian support.
myElements is a research information system. It automatically collects information related to research and scholarship using open data sources and licensed library databases. myElements also connects to other UNH systems to collect personnel, grant, and teaching information.
generates a profile for a faculty member that is automatically and continuously updated with the latest publications and information on citations of their work. Faculty will be able to generate a bio sketch for NIH (we expect NSF format to be available soon) without copying, pasting, and typing in citations. will also provide publications data to the UNH Scholars’ Repository, which is the UNH Library's central location for collecting and promoting scholarship and creative work by UNH faculty, students, staff, institutes, and programs. While profiles are not open to the public, the data will eventually help populate a researcher networking platform called VIVO (and faculty can decide what profile information to have published). To see what this looks like you can visit Duke’s VIVO site.
At any time an individual (with appropriate access) will be able to view all the published books and articles written by faculty over the past month, year, or five years. They will be able to see all of the grant activity of their faculty, and gather/present all of the rich information about the research profile of their department, college, center, or institute including up to date measures of impact (like citations and altmetric scores).
