RIS is Swansea University’s Research Information System. It is a central repository of research which is only available to staff. All research publications authored or co-authored by Swansea University staff can be uploaded into RIS and it will be used to generate entries for the REF, the annual list of university research etc. You can access it via http://home.swansea.ac.uk
Cronfa means store or reservoir in Welsh. This will make information for university publications available online to the wider academic community and will be searchable by tools such as Google Scholar, increasing the visibility of your research.
