Research Institutions

With the REF and its international equivalents, being able to fully measure and report impact across all the research carried out by your organisation is now critical. Researchfish enables understanding and impact reporting on over 100K research awards giving a true representation of the value of your organisation. Ensure compliance with your funders’ requests, report to donors and governors, and attract prospective students.

Why Choose Us?

Many institutions are adopting Researchfish to enable analysis and reporting across a wide dataset of outputs reported by their researchers, giving the variety of evidence needed to build case studies of impact for the Research Excellence Framework (REF).

Subscribing to Researchfish, enables Research Institutions to view all awards held by their researchers and gives the same visibility as funders to monitor required submissions by researchers at their organisation as well as:

  • Access to the full reporting suite, including the new one-click reports, which can be exported, customised with branding and gives visibility of the research activity within your Institution.


  • Access to the Nodes functionality to enable department level reporting, which can be used to segment an organisation into sub units, for separate access and administration.


  • Ability to access and compare data within your Institute to enable benchmarking.


  • Access to an enriched dataset of outputs, which includes a range of Open Access metadata on publications.


  • Access to the Application Program Interface (API), which is designed for users to export or download and map the information held in Researchfish to a grant management system, to work with peer review and funding applications.


Our members

Since first launched in 2012, the number of institutions using Researchfish has grown substantially with most of the main research focused institutions now subscribing members, including the University of Nottingham, University of Oxford, Imperial College London, University College London and University of Cambridge and the full list can be seen here.

Researchfish has made CEBD consider and standardise how they record outcomes of their research. 

"We ask our researchers to add outputs to Researchfish as they happen during the year rather than waiting until near the deadline. When we are preparing things, such as our bi-annual report: or grant applications and need examples of past achievements or particular output types e.g. engagement activities or influence on policy or Intellectual Property, we can see what outputs have been reported in Researchfish against these sections”.
