Managing your research group information in KI RIMS

Your research group page on ki.se partially retrieves its information from KI RIMS. On this page you will find instructions on how to handle that information.

The basic information displayed on the group’s page on ki.se is retrieved from KI RIMS. Editorial material can be added to the web publishing system (Drupal). In KI RIMS, you can choose which members to display on the web, select publications, and connect grants to the group. You can also tag the group with keywords and give other people different administrative rights.

Tip! Prepare the work by ensuring that all members of the group have claimed their publications and grants in KI RIMS.

Getting started

To edit your group’s information, log in to KI RIMS

Click on the menu (three horizontal lines) at the top left of the page. In the System Admin tab, select Group Management and click on Manage Groups.

If you know what the group is called in the organization tree, you can search for the name in the search field under Find a group. Or you can find your group via Group hierarchy and click on it.

The page you will come to is called Group details. It is divided into the following modules:

  • Membership: This lists the members who belong to your group. The information is retrieved from Primula.
  • Group record: Here you enter the name and the preamble/overview that the group should have on the ki.se page. You can also determine which members should be displayed under the Members tab by hiding or adding members.
  • Related groups: This shows the group’s location in the organization tree. The information is retrieved from IDAC and cannot be changed in KI RIMS. If something is wrong, contact your department's IDAC administrator.
  • Relationships: Here you select which grants should be displayed on your group’s page on ki.se, as well as which publications you want to appear under the Selected publications heading on the Publications tab. You can also specify whether the group has a specific contact person.
  • Labels: Here you add research subject tags/keywords for increased visibility on the web.

IMPORTANT! Please refrain from modifying the settings of the group located in the top module (indicated by a box and a cross in the image below). Altering these settings may impact the visibility of your page on the site and cause some information to be hidden.

Description of research area / name of unit

In this field you can enter the descriptive name of the group (for example: Clinical Cancer Epidemiology).

Group leader name and type of group

Enter the name of the group leader and the type of group (for example: Kalle Karlsson’s research group/lab/team).

Alternative names

If the group also has an alternative name or an acronym, you can add it here. Alternative names are not visible on ki.se but are used by search engines.

Preamble/Overview text

The preamble is a short summary that will be displayed at the top of the page. It helps the reader understand what the page is about and helps search engines find your group. Max 500 characters. For searchability and user-friendliness, all pages on ki.se, including research groups, should have an preamble. Make sure to not use a semicolon (;) in your text. 

Naming of research groups

The name of the group always constitutes the title of a research group’s page on ki.se. On KI’s website, the name of a research group should contain three components: a descriptive name/research focus (i.e., what the group works with); type of group (research group, group, team, lab, unit, or similar), and the group leader’s name (which can be omitted if necessary).

Examples:

  • Clinical Cancer Epidemiology – Research Group (lab/team) Kalle Karlsson
  • Clinical Cancer Epidemiology – Kalle Karlsson’s Group (research group/lab/team)
  • Research Group in Clinical Cancer Epidemiology
  • Clinical Cancer Epidemiology – Research Group

Check with your institution to ensure consistent naming. We recommend that the name of the group consists of a total of 60-80 characters.

Group leader and members

Group ledare / PI

Click on edit and search again. Tips for finding the person:

  • Check the person's personal profile page on ki.se and copy the name from there.
  • Multiple last names? Try with a hyphen or only one of the last names. 
  • Does the name have special characters? Try writing the name in a simplified version. For example: ñ = n, é=e, ü=u.
  • Several people with the same name? Test each one until you find the right one.

If you still can’t find the person, contact KI RIMS support.

Members outside formal group

Add other people with connections to your group. For example, alumni, students, and staff from other groups/units. These will be displayed on your group page under the heading Other people with connections to the group on the Staff and Contact tab.

Here you can hide people who are organizationally part of your group but whom you do not want to list as members on your page on ki.se. Be careful to link to the right person as you do when linking the group leader. (see above)

Label with research subjects

At the bottom of the page Group details, you will find the module Labels, which handles research subject tags or keywords. Labels are important for visitors to the web to be able to search and find information about KI’s research. 

To add labels, click on Edit, start typing in the field to get suggestions and choose one or more options that suit the group. You can choose labels from MeSH and from the Swedish standard for research subjects from SCB/UKÄ. 

Labels from the Swedish standard for research subjects from SCB/UKÄ are required to be included in the list of all research groups at KI, which will soon be published on ki.se. Choose at least one, max five such SCB/UKÄ research subjects when adding labels to your group. Try to choose labels with as much subject diversity as possible within the areas where you are active. 

Click on Save when you are done.

What happens when you are done in KI RIMS?

If you already have a group page on ki.se and have only edited the group’s information in KI RIMS, your changes will take effect shortly. 

If you don’t yet have a group page on ki.se, you can now contact the web editor at your department so that they can create a complete page in the web publishing system (Drupal) and then publish it on ki.se.

In the web publishing system it is possible to add pictures, texts and other additional content. As a group leader you are always responsible for the material published on your group’s page, however the web editor can help you to add it. 

If any information is incorrect or missing in KI RIMS

Only groups that are in Primula’s organizational tree are in KI RIMS. If your group is missing, contact your institution. If any information in the organizational tree or members of the group is incorrect, contact your department's IDAC administrator.

Can non-group leaders edit KI RIMS research group information?

The right to edit the information about a research group in KI RIMS is automatically assigned to the group leader. If someone who is not the head of a group needs this role, they will soon be able to apply for that authorization via IDAC.
