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.
