Research Information Management Systems (RIMS)

The University is a member of the South African Universities and Science Councils Consortium which participates in the NRF project for establishing a Research Information Management System (RIMS). RIMS is a web-based tool that captures statistical data and produces reports on institutional research inputs and outputs.

The system consists of the following research management modules:

  • Expertise Management
  • Grants and Contracts
  • Human Studies
  • Animal Studies and Facilities
  • Clinical Trials
  • Intellectual Property
  • Environmental Safety

RIMS will in future play an important role in research management, providing advanced data collection and provision for the institutions of higher learning. The official link to the RIMS Information Website is https://info.rims.ac.za (Please note that UNIZULU does not maintain this website).

RIMS will play an important role in research management with advanced data collection and provision for the institutions of higher learning in South Africa.
