The ESRC database of Research Abstracts and Products TELNET ercvax.ed.ac.uk Username: RAPID Password: RAPID RAPID - the ESRC's Research Activity and Publications Information Database - plays a key role in the Council's task of demonstrating the contribution its funds and activities make to scholarship and to an understanding of the economic and social world at large. The database is managed at the University of Edinburgh on one of its mainframe computers, and holds information on research partly or wholly funded by the ESRC and on the various outcomes of this funded activity. RAPID combines information previously issued through the publications "ESRC Research Supported" and the "ESRC Newsletter"; it contains details of ESRC awards current at April 1985 or made since 1986, along with references to several thousands of publications arising from those awards. Entry into RAPID of information on research awards made since 1988 is scheduled for Summer 1992. Thereafter the information on awards will be updated approximately every three months. Inevitably there is a lag between the start of a research award and the publication of results. Similarly, there will be some delay between the date of publication and the entry of the bibliographic description in RAPID.
