Reporting

Lundbeckfonden’s vision is to create a better life through new knowledge. Therefore, it is a natural step to document the value and effect of the research we fund. The overarching aim is to ensure that our grants benefit both the research and society in general.

Reporting is done in two separate steps through the application system of the Lundbeck Foundation (LANAS) and through Researchfish. If you are required to report via Researchfish, you will receive an e-mail informing you about how to proceed. From 2019 grant winners will be notified in their award letter. 

  1. Annual reporting of research and other relevant activities in Researchfish®. 

All grant holders will receive an invitation by e-mail to Researchfish, a web-based system for collecting outputs, outcomes and impact. We require that you register all results and activities that you evaluate are relevant to your grant. Reporting in Researchfish is an easier and more structured way to capture your activities. 

Keep your account updated throughout the year and submit to us once yearly. The submission window is from December 1st to January 15th.  Entries in Researchfish are not valid unless submitted, so please make sure they are.

As a part of reporting data in Researchfish we require grant holders to register an ORCID®, a personal digital identifier (https://orcid.org/). ORCID ensures that bibliometric data is attributed to the right researcher and that your work is recognized. 

For grants less than or equal to 2 years: Annual reporting in researchfish is required for 3 years after the project ends. For grants more than 2 years: Annual reporting in researchfish is required for 5 years after the project ends. This is critical as the impact and effect of research can and often happen over time. 

  1. Annual project year reporting in LANAS. 
  1. Provide a brief written status report describing the current situation of the project, and any unexpected deviations from or issues with the project plan no later than three months after the end of each project year. 
  2. Provide financial accounts and/ or a revised budget no later than three months after the end of each project year. 

We recommend that you watch the videos provided by Researchfish (https://app.researchfish.com/help-videos). This is the fastest way to learn about the specific aspects of the system. In addition to the instructions in the system, there is an online help function with FAQs, context-dependent support functionality and live chat from 9 am to 5 pm (UK time), Monday to Friday. Researchfish also regularly schedules webinars, and we would advise new users to sign up to these short, free sessions. Here you can access Researchfish’s user manual.

If you experience problems with the Researchfish system (for example, login or technical problems), please contact support@researchfish.co.uk

You are welcome to send any other questions regarding your grants and reporting to the Lundbeck Foundation to application@lundbeckfonden.com.

14. ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS 

SUPERVISING AND MENTORING

The development of students and junior researchers through supervision and mentoring activities have important ramifications and impact for the establishment of good research environments. Mentorships are personal developmental relationships where a more experienced and knowledgeable person guides a less experienced person.

MOBILITY

The Foundation wishes to encourage and support national and international collaboration and mobility between researchers through sharing experience and ideas. Mobility in this regard is stays in other labs. 

Q: Why Researchfish®?

A: Researchfish has been tested and used successfully for several years and has an excellent track record. The use of Researchfish will allow us to conduct a more systematic and uniform data collection improving our ability to assess the impact of the research that is funded by the foundation. Furthermore, it leaves less room for reporting errors, hereby reducing the burden on the researchers.

For an overview of Researchfish’s functionality, please visit Researchfish website: https://www.researchfish.com/

Q: Will it be mandatory to use Researchfish for reporting on Lundbeckfonden grants?

A: Yes, the submission of data through Researchfish is one part of the mandatory reporting expected by Lundbeck Foundation grantees. If a researcher fails to comply with the reporting in Researchfish and LANAS the foundation may withhold or withdraw funding, and new applications from this researcher will not be reviewed. 

Q: What will change?

A: The changes for the researchers when reporting to Lundbeckfonden will be minimal. You will have two deadlines for reporting- one for Researchfish (December 1st to January 15th) and one for the status update and financial accounts which is no later than three months after the end of each project year. Once you have submitted your research outcomes, and your status report and accounts have been accepted by the Foundation, you will receive the next installment of the grant, unless it is an end of grant report.

Q: When will the changes come into effect?

A: We will implement the changes from December 1st 2018. Prior to this, you will receive a notification with instructions on how to login for the first time and use the system.

Q: When shall I report in Researchfish?

A: The submission window is open from December 1st and closes on January 15th. You can enter data at any time after you have registered an account upon receiving the invitation from Researchfish. Submission can only take place during the submission window. 

Q: Why do you require ORCID®?

A: We require ORCID, which is a personal digital identifier (https://orcid.org/) to ensure that bibliometric data is attributed to the right researcher and that your work is recognized. By registering your ORCID in researchfish you can either add publications from your ORCID record to Researchfish or you can add publications in researchfish which then will update your ORCID record automatically. 

Q: Can any preparatory work be done to prepare data for input?

A: Yes, you can make sure your ORCID is updated or you can find ‘Digital Object Identifiers’ (DOIs) for your publications and enter them into Researchfish if you choose to update your ORCID that way. The system allows you to bulk upload 200 journal article entries at a time simply by listing their DOIs (or PubMed IDs). Moreover, outputs only need to be entered once in your personal portfolio and can then be attributed to multiple or single funders (grants) by a drag and drop process. 

You can also start entering data into your personal portfolio as soon as you receive your Researchfish invitation and register for an account. 

Q: Is there anything I can do to learn more about the services of Researchfish?

A: You might want to have a look at the video and FAQs under the ‘Help’ section of the Researchfish website. You can also attend the webinars as advertised on the Researchfish website. 

Q: How do I know if I have submitted my data in Researchfish?

A: In the section “Awards I am responsible for” the color of your award entry will have changed from red to green if you have submitted your data successfully. You will also receive an e-mail from Researchfish confirming your submission. 

Q: I have submitted but I have forgotten to add something to my award, can I update my award and re-submit?

A: Yes, you can update and re-submit your award until January 15th, which is the last day of the submission window.

Q: Can anyone help me register data in Reserachfish?

A: Yes, you have the opportunity to add team member(s) to your award(s) that can help you enter data in Researchfish. This is particularly useful for alliances and larger grants. See the user guide for more information: https://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/rfuserguidedownloads/RF-userguide.pdf

Requirements for LF funded researchers

Lundbeck Foundation funded researchers- postdocs, fellows, principal investigators, and where appropriate students- are required to provide an annual update on outputs and outcomes that stem from their research funded by the Lundbeck Foundation. They are required to have a Researchfish account and to use the Researchfish online system to provide annual updates during the period of the grants and for three to five years after their grants- depending on the size and timeframe of the grant- have ended as the outcomes and impact of research can and often happen over time. The purpose is to ensure that activities and outcomes of the grant are documented systematically in Researchfish.

New or recent grant recipients may not have any outputs or outcomes to report in their first annual submission. In this case, grant recipients may submit no or relatively few outputs and outcomes. 

Researchers can record and attribute research outcomes to grants at any time. During the annual submission period for the Lundbeck Foundation- December 1st to January 15th– a ‘SUBMIT TO RESEARCHFISH’ button is enabled for each award. 

By clicking the Researchfish submit-button the researcher formally confirms that the currently attributed outcomes represent a full and up-to-date record of the outcomes as a result of the grant. 

By submitting data in Researchfish the researcher is agreeing that the information is truthful, accurate and as complete as possible. If, when using the information, the Lundbeck Foundation raiser concerns over the accuracy or completeness of the submission then these will be raised with the researcher, and sanctions may be applied retrospectively. Researchers are required to maintain an active email address in the Researchfish system to allow that they can be contacted directly and given appropriate advance notice of the scheduled submission period. 

To consolidate specific evaluations the Lundbeck Foundation may require an update to a grant outside the annual submission period. Affected researchers will be notified of these requirements. 

Grant holders with grants running for two years or less will have to provide annual updates three years after their awards have ended. Grant holders with grants running for more than two years will have to provide updates five years after their awards have ended. Lundbeck Foundation travel grant winners do not currently have to report in Researchfish. Researchers have the opportunity to discuss with the Lundbeck Foundation when they expect no further outcomes from their grant and then ‘complete’ their grant in Researchfish. 

Sanctions.

If the required annual reporting by a grant holder in Researchfish and LANAS (short status report and financial accounts) is not submitted on time- the Lundbeck Foundation may apply the following sanctions:

      • New applications from a researcher (either as a principal investigator or a co-investigator) who has failed to comply with the annual reporting may be deemed ineligible for review. 
      • If a grant is still active further grant instalments may be withheld. 

Exceptions. 

As part of the general terms and conditions of accepting funding from the Lundbeck Foundation submissions are expected annually, even when there are no outcomes to report. In some circumstances this will not be possible, due to e.g. parental leave, sick leave, etc. Grant holders have a responsibility to keep their research organization and the Lundbeck Foundation informed of any such changes. 

What we do with the data.

Submitted outcomes data are analysed and used to report to the committees, the board and the authorities on the impact of the Lundbeck Foundation’s support in research. The annual submission of data enables the foundation to use the most up-to-date for impact reports and for information for stake holders and strategic partners. 

It is vital that researchers return information to us on the outcomes from their funded projects so we can understand the short and long term impact that the research is having, demonstrating the contribution to society and to the economy. Systematically collected research outputs and outcomes will provide strong evidence-based support for continued funding of research. 

Data submitted to the Lundbeck Foundation through Researchfish will also be available in an aggregated format through the Foundation’s homepage, raising the visibility of research to the public and potential collaborators. 

The Lundbeck Foundation’s Principles of Use for information submitted via Researchfish.

The Lundbeck Foundation has a Principles of Use statement. All Lundbeck Foundation-funded researchers are required to provide an annual update on outcomes and outputs that result from their Lundbeck Foundation grants. The data will be used to enhance and strengthen evidence and accountability, as well as, to inform strategic decision-making and to evaluate progress and impact. 

Please ensure that submitted data is appropriate for use in the public domain e.g. it is not defamatory; personal information about named individuals is not provided; it does not contain commercially sensitive information; etc. 

To collect data on outcomes the Lundbeck Foundation uses an online system, Researchfish. For further details see Lundbeck Foundation Compliance policy and the Lundbeck Foundation’s General Terms and Conditions for Research Grants. 

Researchfish is used by a large number of research funders, in Denmark it includes the Lundbeck Foundation, the Novo Nordisk Foundation, the Danish Cancer Society, and the Velux Foundations. Over 100,000 researchers from 70 countries currently use the system to report to their funding sources. Researchfish enables foundations and research organisations to keep systematic track of results and outputs from their grants, and enables researchers to register their work.

These principles of use relate to research funded by the Lundbeck Foundation and outline what types of data are collected in Researchfish. In addition, they provide information on how the data is used by the Lundbeck Foundation and what is likely to be published. 

Data collected via Researchfish. 

The Lundbeck Foundation uses Researchfish to collect data on outputs and outcomes. This includes both qualitative and quantitative information such as publications, collaborations, methods, and influence on policy. 

The Researchfish system presents a Common Question Set and an Additional Question Set. Guidance on completing the questions can be found throughout the Researchfish system. You are advised to ensure that you do not disclose data that is commercially sensitive, personal, that might be considered confidential or is defamatory. If you are unsure, please contact your university research support offices or administration for further guidance. 

How the Lundbeck Foundation will use data submitted via Researchfish.

The data you submit to Researchfish will be used to support the objectives outlined in the introduction above, and will include some data being published in the form of analyses and evaluations undertaken by the Lundbeck Foundation. In addition, some of the information you provide may be published on the Lundbeck Foundation website. This is to ensure that the outcomes of the Lundbeck Foundation’s funded research are accessible to the research community, stake holders, policy makers, and the public. Please be aware that any text you submit to Researchfish may be quoted, in full or in parts and attributed to researchers and grants. 

These principles of use apply only if the Lundbeck Foundation will use and publish data collected via Researchfish. By submitting data to Researchfish you consent to this use, and to the publication and dissemination of outcomes. 

Publishing information on the Lundbeck Foundation website.

The Lundbeck Foundation website provides data on Lundbeck Foundation funded grants, this includes:

  • The names of investigators and research organizations
  • The project title
  • The total value of the grant(s)
  • The research outcomes and outputs

The website is publicly available. 

Personal data held by Researchfish.

The Researchfish system holds information about grants which is drawn from the Lundbeck Foundation research management systems. This will include a limited amount of personal data, including your e-mail contact details and the name of the research organisation holding the award (which may be your employer). This information is managed in line with the principles on the Danish Act on Data Protection and used together with the data on research outcomes you enter in Researchfish to:

  • Operate the Researchfish system- including notifying you of changes to the system, system, downtime, and deadlines for submission of outcome information
  • Manage the Lundbeck Foundation Researchfish compliance policy. 

Researchfish provide the facility for you to update your e-mail contact details only for the purposes of interacting with the Researchfish system. You can request the amendment of any other details displayed in the system by contacting the Lundbeck Foundation. If you wish to change the e-mail address that the Lundbeck Foundation uses to contact you, you must update your details in LANAS. 

Data about research outcomes you enter into the “My Portfolio” section of Researchfish is accessible only to you and anyone you identify via the delegate or team member function. This data can only be accessed by the Lundbeck Foundation when you (or your delegate/ team member) have allocated the outcome to an award(s) for which you have reporting responsibility and is only made available to research organizations when you have formally submitted. 

As the data you submit to the Lundbeck Foundation via Researchfish may be published, you should avoid specifically identifying individuals involved in the work, unless the information is already in the public domain (such as the names of co-authors listed on publications). 

You are also advised to ensure that you do not disclose data that is commercially sensitive, that might be considered confidential in some other way or is defamatory. Any such disclosure or the consequences thereof will not be the responsibility of the Lundbeck Foundation. 

By agreeing to these principles of use and by submitting data into the system, you have explicitly consented to your data being processed by us and stored in the Researchfish system and associated internal systems at the Lundbeck Foundation. 

Information requests. 

The Lundbeck Foundation aims to be transparent about how we conduct our business through our publications, websites and discussions in person. Should we receive any requests for information on outcomes and outputs within the Researchfish system that are not already publicly available, the Lundbeck Foundation will aim to contact you and your research organization as soon as possible to determine whether the information should not be publicly available. We will take your views into considering how to respond to such a request. However, the final decision on whether to disclose or withhold any information will rest with the Lundbeck Foundation. 

Standards for responsible research practice.

In order to apply and to be eligible for grants from the Lundbeck Foundation, applicants must confirm that they comply with the Lundbeck Foundation’s General Terms and Conditions for Research Grants. This includes compliance with Responsible Research and Innovation, cf. EU’s HORIZON 2020.  

Status and final grant report.

The information submitted via Researchfish should not be duplicated in the short status or final report, which together with financial accounts, must be submitted according to the project year. Separate reporting processes may be in place for some grant instruments, and the affected researchers/ projects will be notified of this. 

Contact.

If you have any questions about these principles, please contact application@lundbeckfoundation.com.
