IRINS- Indian Research Information Network System

INFLIBNET Center, Gandhinagar has recently launched a web based Research Information Management Service known as “IRINS” to facilitate academic, R & D organizations to collect, curate and showcase the scholarly communication activities of their faculty, scientists and scholars to provide an opportunity to create a scholarly network amongst them. Recently IRINS project, Phase-I has been approved by MHRD under National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT).

The major features of this project are as follows:

1. Work as common platform across all academic and research institutes in Indian HEIs sector.
2. Serve as a research tool to project performance of individual, departments and schools/institutes on various bibliometric parameters.
3. Supports integration of existing research management system viz. HR system, course/grant management system, IR, Open/commercial citation databases and academic identity such as ORCID ID, Scopus ID, Google Scholar ID, Researcher ID etc.
4. It can facilitate flow of information on research carried out by individual faculty, researchers within an institute or across institutions and its departments/schools.
5. It can be used as an instrument for policy makers and Government to identify expertise available, thrust areas of research, research gaps and define their policies on research funding accordingly
