A recent collaboration between the ResearchMonitor and Manzama teams is set to drastically improve the usefulness of ResearchMonitor’s mobile research solution, ResearchHub. Starting with the iPad app and soon to be included in the iPhone and Android versions, the new functionality allows Manzama email links to open automatically in ResearchHub, thereby benefiting from ResearchMonitor’s password management and usage tracking without requiring users to change their behaviour. This workflow has been a goal since ResearchHub was first launched, as it allows the tool to fit more seamlessly into the mobile research workflow, a major component of which involves accessing content contained in current awareness and news alerts. This integration functionality has only been possible because of the collaborative effort between teams and we look forward to further collaborations with other news and current awareness providers in future.
The result of this integration is that firms using both Manzama and ResearchHub have the option of allowing Manzama articles to open in the ResearchHub app, without anything extra required of the researcher. The benefit to the researcher is that ResearchHub will manage the log in process removing the need to supply usernames and passwords, and from a management perspective the administration team has a clearer understanding of who is accessing the various articles using ResearchMonitor usage reports.
