Bournemouth Research, Information and Networking (BRIAN)



BRIAN (Bournemouth Research Information And Networking) is BU’s publication management system.

Staff can manage their research outputs on BRIAN, as well as other information such as biography, academic group, memberships, website and social media links, plus many more options. Information input to BRIAN will be displayed in the BU staff profile web pages.

BRIAN enables a single point of data entry which will enable research information to be used in multiple places. It will also enable BU to meet Research Excellence Framework (REF) requirements by improving administrative efficiency and data accuracy.

All academic staff automatically have a login and you can access it with your normal university username and password (you don’t need to add staff\ in front of your username). 

Available to: Staff
