A brief description of the methodology the institution followed to complete the research inventory:

UCR uses an online portal, PAMIS eCAF, for registering all research grant proposals. In 2013 UCR added a mandatory selection box for researchers to self-identify whether or not their research project met the definition of sustainability focused research at UCR. The definition was supplied via a hyperlink to the selection box.
Sampling was also conducted by the Office of Sustainability through Strategic Communications and Departmental Chairs to find research on sustainability that may not be grant funded.
