Research and Creative Outputs


  • InfoEd is an international research information management system (RIMS) focusing on the sharing, transfer and archiving of research information. 
  • All research outputs (publications) of the NWU to be submitted to the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) annually are captured in the InfoEd system.  A designated research officer in each faculty/entity/school has access to InfoEd and is responsible for recording the research output of the faculty/entity/school.
