The Researcher Portal collates all research project resources and information relevant to RMIT researchers into a single space. It is designed to make your research projects easier to conduct while providing you with insight into how you can develop your academic career.
The Portal provides 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 you have access to the most current information available so that you can stay up to date.
As we continue to capture information relevant for HDR Candidates we welcome feedback from our users letting us know what they would like to see added to the Portal. If you have suggestions for content or features that would make the research experience at RMIT easier, contact the Portal team with your ideas through the feedback function within the Help Centre (portal access required).

Accessing the portal
You will need to complete a Salesforce New User form via ServiceNow. Alternatively, you can contact the Service and Support Centre on 9925 8888.
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.
Research Support, available through the Portal, allows researchers to connect with skilled research support teams that can answer any discipline specific questions you may have.
To contact a support team, navigate to the Help Centre at the top right of any Portal page and select the Research Support function.
The Portal does not currently collate data from student and staff ID’s 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.
