Researchfish deadline approaching

Published on 01 November 2017

Award-holders who are due to report in December must have updated Researchfish by 1 December 2017.

The majority of our awards report through Researchfish in either May or December. If you're due to report in December, you should have received an email to let you know. We recognise that new awards may have little to report, but please complete your update as fully as you can.

In particular we ask that you:

  • Only report outputs arising from work funded by the specific grant that we have asked you to report on
  • review all sections in Researchfish and complete all those for which you have outputs to report
  • remember to update the ‘Further Information’ found in the 'Further Details' section if you have previously reported on this grant.

You can delegate completion of the report to a member of your research team but you'll need to review and submit the report yourself.

You can also update Researchfish throughout the year, for example with publications. Please let us know of any upcoming publications as soon as possible, because once an article is published it is too late for our press office to prepare a press release.

The information provided in your report is used to demonstrate the impact of the research we fund and the benefits to people with arthritis. It may also be used by our fundraising teams to help raise more money to fund research. Please note that it is a condition of our funding that the award-holder provides information about the outcomes resulting from their funded research on request.

For help using Researchfish visit If you're reporting for the first time, we strongly recommend that you attend one of the online training webinars.
