Annual Renewals are about to commence
Annual Renewals for universities will commence in April with CURF Contact Officers receiving an email detailing the requirements and completion date.
Organisations can expect an email from the Microdata Access Strategies Section confirming their current list of CURFs and Individual Users to date in the coming months.
Annual CURF Renewals have a number of benefits for you, our users, and for the ABS. For the ABS, they provide feedback on client use of microdata in ways that guide the ongoing improvement of our services. They also help our subject matter areas to plane for future CURF releases.
For you, they allow the ABS to list your published output on its web site, potentially increasing your readership in the process. And, of course, you are the final beneficiaries of our improved services.
As well, for both you and the ABS, Renewals give us confidence that your CURF related activities continue to comply with the conditions placed on CURF access.
So that we might add your output to our website, Renewals ask individual users to report the outcomes of their CURF use, including ongoing work and published journal articles, papers, conference submissions, etc.
When details of final outputs are available, the ABS compiles a list of Published Research using CURF Microdata. This information also assists ABS subject-matter areas in planning future CURFs. Please refer to the following section for more information.
Annual CURF Renewals are a mandatory requirement for access to CURFs. If you require any assistance with the Annual Renewal process please contact <firstname.lastname@example.org>
