Researcher Portal

Find all the resources you need during your Higher Degree by Research in one place!

The Researcher Portal collates all research project resources and information relevant to RMIT researchers in a single space. It is designed to make project data accessible while providing the resources required to conduct research at RMIT.

The Researcher Portal presents an extensive array of knowledge articles, visibility of funding opportunities, access to the Research Ethics Platform (REP), contact information for HDR support services, FAQs pertaining to common issues faced by researchers, and much more. This content is regularly maintained to ensure access to the most current information so you can stay up to date. 

We welcome feedback from Researcher Portal users. If you have suggestions for content or features that would make the research experience at RMIT easier, contact the Portal team via the feedback function within the Help Centre (portal access required).

For more information about the Researcher Portal, you can view FAQs located at the bottom of the dashboard page on the Portal. 

Accessing the portal

The Researcher Portal is available for all researchers, HDR candidates and support staff at RMIT. If you joined RMIT after the launch of the Portal in 2019 you will need to apply for access. You will find instructions for this process below under the following question. 

You will need to complete a Salesforce New User form via ServiceNow and select Researcher Portal as your Salesforce Profile.

If you receive a ‘Single sign-on’ error when attempting to log on to the Portal, it means that you do not yet have access and will need to complete the form above. 

Research Support, available through the Help Centre of the Portal, allows researchers to connect with skilled research support teams that can answer questions about research at RMIT.

To access Support, visit the Researcher Portal Help Centre (portal access required).

Currently, Chrome and Safari are the only browsers that support full functionality.

A mobile phone-friendly version of the Portal will be available soon.

No, external partners and organisations do not currently have access to the Portal. 

If you would like to provide the Portal team with feedback about your experience, or you have an idea for a feature or information should be added, visit the Help Centre at the top right of any Portal page and select the Feedback function.

The Portal does not currently collate data from student and staff IDs (S-numbers and E-numbers) into one view. Any items, including publications, that were conducted and reported in your capacity as an RMIT staff member will only appear once you log in with your staff account. This applies for items in which your involvement was registered under a student ID. The CI of a project can provide more visibility to items by making you a ‘Delegate CI’ in their own Portal view.

If you believe some of your project data being displayed in the Portal is incorrect, please log a service & support incident through the Help Centre in the Portal or contact
