RPS: Research Publications Service System

RPS: Research Publications Service

System overview

UCL's Research Publications Service (RPS) is an online database for all UCL's research publications. It allows you to maintain an up to date list of all your research outputs. RPS enables automatic harvesting of publications from publicly available databases such as Web of Knowledge, Scopus, PubMed and arXiv, reducing any need to re-enter bibliographic data. RPS automatically provides data for display publicly both in IRIS and UCL Discovery.
