The development of a software program for the management of research resources is explained. Although this kind of resource is of utmost importance for obtaining scientifi c results, references related to this topic are sparse. The approach proposed by TAIR is novel due to its being based on the daily work of research resources managers and its methodology, on the requirements of technical and administrative staff. Specifi cally, one could say that the management of research resources is a global process which is set in motion when a public call has been identifi ed. It then proceeds with the grant being awarded, the results published in a scholarly paper, and the citation added to the researchers' CVs. In conclusion, this article recommends that the management of research resources should be a full process integrated into academic production by means of the TAIR software.
