Researcher Database

1. APU Researcher Database

APU has developed a researcher database that allows our researchers (APU faculty) to publicize their research activities within Japan and across the world. Making our latest research results and research projects public is useful for developing partnerships with industry, promoting human resource exchange, and advancing collaborative research projects.
The contents of the Researcher Database are not only displayed on APU’s homepage, but also made available to the Japan Science and Technology Agency’s (JST) researchmap. A more detailed explanation of researchmap can be found below. Please refer to it for more information.
Be sure to update your profile regularly so that more of the general public can know about your research activities!

2. Target

APU Full-time Faculty Researchers
*Full-time Faculty includes Professors, Associate Professors, Assistant Professors (including Fixed-term Faculty, Specially-Appointed Faculty), Tenured Senior Lecturers, and Lecturers.

4. Researcher's information is updated on the researchmap Homepage.

4.Providing Information to researchmap

Every year, APU has provided data from the Researcher Database to the Japan Science and Technology Agency’s (JST) Directory Database of Research and Development Activities (ReaD). In November of 2011, ReaD merged with the National Institute of Informatics’ (NII) Researchmap database to form ReaD&Researchmap. In April of 2014, ReaD&Researchmap underwent a name change to become researchmap. JST holds responsibility for administering the database, as before, and the university continues to provide new data to researchmap once or twice a year. Those who do not want to send information to researchmap should contact the Research Office.
