We are creating a unified UKRI website that brings together the existing research council, Innovate UK and Research England websites.

The researchfish® question set for MRC researchers

In September 2014, the five remaining research councils joined the MRC and STFC in using researchfish® to collect information on the outputs and impact of their research. To accommodate the addition of these extra research disciplines, some changes have been made to the question set. The majority of these changes are to the guidance and help text, however there are a few additional questions asking for more detail, for example, on the type of further funding and the purpose of an engagement activity. There will continue to be small changes to the question set text to improve clarity.  MRC funded researchers, when logged in, will find these changes documented in the ‘Documentation’ section of the researchfish® website ‘Help and Support page’.

The question set and links to webinars about researchfish® procedures are publically available on the researchfish® website.


Note: It is necessary to register an email address to access this information – this is because the question set is an evolving document and it is important to be able to notify interested persons of changes as and when they occur.


For MRC-specific queries relating to the question set, please contact the MRC Evaluation Team.
