Contribution Management

Lyterati's comprehensive taxonomy tracks faculty accomplishments in the areas of research, teaching and service. This hierarchy allows for seamless reporting, automatic populating of web profiles, and quick and easy faculty activity reporting. Use Lyterati's default taxonomy or configure it to meet your specific needs.

Contribution Management

Lyterati serves as a single platform to manage faculty achievements. We start by bringing in faculty data from ERPs through our integrated Data Loader. Our baseline integrations allow for data to come from a variety of enterprise systems such as a student information system, human resources system, grants management system, and evaluation systems.


The Lyterati "Taxonomy" contains a diverse array of categories, headings, and types. Categories provide the broadest level of classification and include Personal Information, Research Contributions, Teaching, and Service. Each category is further subdivided into headings. Within each heading, types provide one final layer of distinction to group similar contributions together. For instance, the Research category consists of headings such as Articles, Book Chapters, Conferences & Talks, etc. Within each heading, types provide one final layer of distinction to group similar contributions together. 

Faculty can import new publications with Lyterati's built-in import tool from sources such as PubMed, Google Scholar, Web of Science and files in BibTeX files, and CSV formats. Each contribution has a URL field and a link to upload documents and audio/video files.

Localize the Taxonomy

Lyterati's taxonomy is built for your institution. We work with you to create the categories, headings, and types to organize faculty contributions.

Lyterati makes entering new contributions easy. Data can be captured as a citation from a CV or entered in individual data fields. For certain headings, Lyterati's parse feature can take a standard citation and fill appropriate data fields.

Data Integration

Faculty data can be integrated from a variety of university ERPs as frequently as needed. Built-in validations help you manage data quality.

Faculty have many convenient ways to import publication data from PubMed, Google Scholar, DOI, Web of Science, and any database that supports CSV or BibTeX. Data can also be loaded using template files.

Seamless Integration

Lyterati's taxonomy is at the core of managing contributions. Data added in the Taxonomy can be pulled into Faculty Annual Reports, Promotion & Tenure dossiers, and a variety of other administrative processes. 

Lyterati's built-in reporting feature allows administrators to report on any contributions. These contributions feed faculty web profiles and support institutional analytics.

Lyterati CV Maker

Lyterati's built-in CV Maker allows faculty to view and download a summary of their information in Lyterati in a CV-like report. Departmental administrators can modify the base template and create new templates for various purposes required by their unit. Faculty can choose what information is included in their CV, the order of contributions, and formatting details.

The CV Maker allows for control over the fonts, sizing, line spacing, bullets, numbers, indentation, and CV header. Contributions can be ordered by a specified field such as End Year or Start Year. Contributions can be grouped by type and the CV can be run for a particular time period.


CVs can be downloaded as a Word document or as a PDF file.
