Products Researchfish

Researchfish is used globally by funders and universities to track research and evidence impact.

The platform uses technology and algorithms to collect outcomes and outputs of research from the web, external data sources and the researchers themselves.


Who is Researchfish for?

Researchfish helps funders and charities report on research impact beyond academia and inform future funding strategies.

Universities adopt Researchfish to track the outcomes of research funded via various sources and better evaluate and articulate the impact of their whole portfolio.

Researchfish & Interfolio

Researchfish allows centres to report on multiple funding sources and enable granular tracking and data collection.

Researchfish helps us to collect a wealth of information on the outputs and outcomes of our research – it gives us some of the raw data to help us articulate impact and evaluate our research further along that pathway. We’ve used the data collected via Researchfish for many useful analyses, but if I had to pick one to highlight then the sheer scale and breadth of our research collaborations was pretty eye opening.
