The CASRAI community is as diverse as the research/scholarly management and communications life-cycle. The following types of roles at stakeholder organizations will have key perspectives and roles to play in keeping with their respective roles in the shared management and communications of research and scholarship. Note: there are many variations of role titles across different jurisdictions and corporate structures; please keep the role-intent in mind when reading.
Staff at research-performing organizations are the primary stewards and drivers of the CASRAI mission. It is this category of stakeholder that most 'feel the pain' of undue administrative burden and ineffective policies on measuring research impact.
This functional area of the organization (or its equivalent) would be especially affected by reductions in admin burden and improvements to impact measurement.
