The ANU Research Information Enterprise System (ARIES) is used to manage the research activities and outputs across the university.
The system has several modules, including Contracts/Grants, Publications, Animal Ethics, Human Ethics, Reporting and ERA.
If you are an administrator, you will need to apply for access to the relevant module. In some cases, you will need to undertake training and receive your manager's approval before access is given.
Complete one of the following registration forms:
ARIES - New Investigator or Author registration
ARIES - New administrative user registration for Grants/Publications module
ANU research data request
ANU request for a new Funds Provider or Scheme
Grants administrators and publication officers should register their interest with RSD by completing and submitting the form ARIES - New administrative user registration for Grants/Publications module.
Additionally, the following links provide video tutorials of some ARIES grant administrator functions. (log in using your HORUS/ARIES password)

If your research involves animals, you must receive approval from the The Australian National University's Animal Experimentation Ethics Committee (AEEC) before you can commence. Please contact our Research Integrity team if you have any queries.
User profile does not exist
Administrative staff receiving the message "That user profile/account does not exist in ARIES" should also use the registration form, available on the ARIES page. This will ensure they add their contact details so that they can be informed when the account has been created.
The form should be complete, including University Id (obtainable from your HR Office or your Local IT staff contact). Any problems should be described in the Comments box. Missing items are likely to delay the creation of the account and may be referred back to the person requesting the account.
