Websites

Advice on the production of specialist research websites, purchasing domain names and other website topics.

If you need a new website, in the first instance you should always get in contact with the University's Digital Communications team.

Research IT can help with the production of specialist research websites.

Specialist research websites

Research IT have produced many specialist research websites, including repositories and collections.

Research group / project websites

Many research group / project websites are accommodated within the supported University Content Management System - T4 Site Manager - often as part of the existing School / Faculty website or as part of an approved University Research Centre (URC) website. Contact your Faculty Web Officer in the first instance.

Check that your research group / project is represented in Pure, the University of Bristol's research information system that powers the Explore Bristol Research web site.

If a research group / project requires a bespoke website, then if there is a budget for website development, then do contact us to see how Research IT can help.

Publishing research data

Most research funders and many academic publishers now have mandates requiring research data to be properly managed and, where possible, shared. The Research Data Service provide detailed advice on how to publish and share research data.

Researcher homepages

Check that you have updated / written your research profile in Pure, the University of Bristol's research information system that powers the Explore Bristol Research web site and People Profiler pages within Schools.

While there is no University wide solution for providing researcher homepages, local School or Department level servers may exist, so do check with your Zonal IT team.
