The Jisc-funded UK Research Information Shared Service (UKRISS) project investigated the reporting of research information across the UK HE sector and assessed the feasibility of a national infrastructure based on CERIF with the objective of increasing the efficiency, productivity and reporting quality across the sector. A core reporting profile was developed that would enable harmonised reporting on RCUK-funded research, taking into account the HE-BCI survey as well as REF reporting elements. In this paper we describe the UKRISS modelling approach and provide some insight into the UKRISS reporting objects to support understanding of their formal CERIF representations, i.e. the selection of underlying CERIF entities; the challenges with managing objects and aggregations in CERIF. Example data extracts demonstrate the work.
