The Integrated Research Information System (IRIS) project was started in 2012 to put in place a comprehensive and integrated system to serve the University’s growing needs in the area of research management and administration, and to increase the productivity of researchers and administrative staff through automation and tools. The project was initiated by Office of Integrated Information Technology Services (IITS) with the participation of the SMU Libraries and the Office of Research & Tech Transfer.

The project was awarded to Clarivate Analytics (previously Thomson Reuters) using the platform called Converis.

The first module to be launched is Publications, which replaces the in-house system called Research Publications System (RPS).

The IRIS Research Publications module was available as beta release on 4 October 2015 and went live on 4 January 2016 on version 5.5. IRIS is currently on version 6 of Converis.
