Nexus and Research Portfolio Manager (RPM)
Nexus will replace the RPM system as of 06/07/2015 for web profile management. RPM will remain active to allow staff to compare their data between RPM and Nexus.
The Nexus system has been built specifically for the management of your online web profile. Through Nexus you can create a biography and record as little or as much detail of your academic career as you like. The Nexus system will then automatically present this information via the University web site to the world in a stylish and consistent format. To minimise data entry, Nexus consolidates data from a number of University systems, such as HR, NURO, NOVA, NUSTAR and RIMS. In addition to aggregating data, Nexus also provides the ability for you to delegate responsibility of your profile to other University staff via the impersonation functions (http://dotnet.newcastle.edu.au/Nexus/Impersonation/Index)
Please feel free to explore Nexus by navigating through the top menu. If you would like personalised support or have a quick question, contact email@example.com.
Nexus is not just for University staff, it can also be used by RHD students to build online profiles.
Please note: We recommend using Mozilla Firefox when accessing Nexus. Performance issues and errors may be experienced when using older versions of Internet Explorer
Nexus Quick Reference Guides
The Nexus Quick Start User Guide provides a quick reference to developing your web profile by identifying linking the sections of your web profile with the pages where the data is maintained in Nexus.
Other user guides and support documents will be added when they become available.
If you still have questions about Nexus, please contact the Research Performance and Systems Unit.
