What is RPS?

UCL's Research Publications Service (RPS) is a system designed to help researchers manage their publications, professional and teaching activities. Data from RPS populates UCL Profiles, UCL's public profiles service. RPS captures researcher’s publications from a range of sources such as Scopus, Web of Science, and CrossRef. Researchers can add records for publications manually, and can import publications lists. UCL researchers upload their manuscripts in RPS, which are then made open access in UCL’s repository, UCL Discovery.
Videos demonstrating how to claim and upload publications are available on our Managing publications in RPS and Getting started with RPS: checklist webpages. It is important that researchers maintain their list of publications, regularly review suggestions for publications and claim or reject them, and upload accepted manuscripts to comply with the REF open access policy.

What is UCL Profiles? 

Profiles is the new public layer which has been added to RPS. UCL researchers should follow the steps on the Profiles Getting Started page to set up their public profile by adding information about appointments, qualifications, research, teaching and other activities.
