| The UQ reSEARCHers Philosophy|
The integrity and timelines of information on a web-site such as this is of paramount importance. Data in UQ reSEARCHers is compared against and updated from the University's corporate information systems daily. These data links also avoid data double-entry and ensure that the maintenance effort required is kept to a minimum. For example, the member lists of Schools' and Research Centres' will be updated daily from the personnel system, as will individuals' contact details. Publications and research projects will be automatically published as soon as they are entered into the Office of Research and Postgraduate Studies database. Updates to School and Centre data (eg new Head, location or contact) and structural changes within the University will be captured by a data feed from the UQorg database.
Access to data from the corporate information systems does not restrict the freedom of individuals or their Heads to customise their public profile. All researchers are able to augment the centrally-fed information, or to suppress any detail which they do not wish to see on their web site. A robust administrative interface allows Heads of Schools and Centre Directors to implement as much or as little editorial control as they choose.
The user interface provides multiple communication mechanisms including a comprehensive search engine, browse lists, downloads of print-formatted documents, etc.
Visitors to UQ reSEARCHers can also subscribe to the site and be kept informed about new developments at UQ in their specific areas of interest.
Primary target groups with distinct and definable needs have been identified: corporate, industry and government clients; potential research collaborators; potential postgraduate students; contacts within the media. Other user groups include potential employers/employees for our postgraduate students; internal UQ users/administrators; other research institutions; the general public.
