Aurora and your Researcher Profile

Capture, report, and promote your research using Aurora and Researcher Profiles.

Aurora (University of Adelaide Researcher Outputs, Reporting and Analytics) is the University's web-based system for capturing and reporting research publications, outputs, professional activities and profile information.

Your online Researcher Profile draws upon information from Aurora that has been automatically harvested, or manually entered by yourself. Used in conjunction with Aurora, your Researcher Profile presents your research activities to the public in a visually attractive and accessible way, to enhance HDR student recruitment, research collaborations, and industry and media engagement.
