Academic Information Management System (AIMS): Home

What is AIMS?

The Academic Information Management System (AIMS) of the CUHK is an one-stop platform for managing research information, and it is integrated with the University's administrative systems for data exchange. AIMS also provides an institutional repository, CUHK Research Portal to make the University's research outputs publicly accessible. The Publication Module of AIMS, together with the Research Portal, was launched in  Dec 2016 and the research output records inputted to the previous Online Publication Input System (OPIS) were migrated to AIMS.

This Library Guide focuses on how to input research output records to the Publication Module of AIMS. To learn more about AIMS, please visit its website.
