TUNICRIS Research Information System

All publication data and academic activities of Tampere University and Pirkanmaa Hospital District are maintained in the TUNICRIS research information system.

TUNICRIS provides an up-to-date view of the university's and PSHP's research activities and improves the visibility of research activities and open access to publications. The information stored in the system is used in internal and external reporting (Ministry of Education and Statistics Finland), funding calculation (Ministry of Education and the university) and in evaluating and monitoring research.

Data can be imported into TUNICRIS from a number of databases and services (e.g., Scopus, WoS, PubMed, ORCID, Scival, Publication Forum,, and PlumX), greatly reducing the manual work involved in saving and checking publications. The connection between TUNICRIS and the institutional repository Trepo makes it easy to self-archive publications directly through the system.

Importing and saving publications

  • The library imports publication data from from Web of Science, Scopus and other sources (Arto, Medic, PubMed).
  • All publications are not indexed in online databases. Researchers must register all missing publications themselves.
  • Researchers must check that all of their publications can be found in CRIS systems.
  • Publications of doctoral students, grant researchers and other individuals affiliated to the university mus also be registered. Only publications in research information systems are considered as publications of Tampere University
  • Researchers must also register their academic activities and artistic activities.
  • The library provides assistance with registrations and checks all publication metadata.
  • All research articles must be self-archived if the publisher allows self-archiving. Full texts are automatically transferred from TUNICRIS to Trepo

Old systems

The old research information systems SoleCRIS and TUTCRIS will continue to operate alongside TUNICRIS until the end of 2020. The systems are for browsing and data comparison purposes only. Do not save new data into SoleCRIS or TUTCRIS.


  • New research information system TUNICRIS ( has been launched for internal use on October 12, 2020. TUNICRIS research portal ( will be opened to public later this year.

  • The library is currently organizing TUNICRIS introductions and trainings. The timetable can be seen in our Training section.

  • Use the affiliation Tampere University / Tampereen yliopisto in all new publications. See also Affiliations in publications.

Current TUNICRIS contents and next steps

  • Step 1 (completed on October 12):
    • Contents from TUTCRIS have been fully transferred
    • Contents from Julki have been fully transferred. There may still be errors and missing data
    • Publications from SoleCRIS have been partially transferred. There may still be errors and missing data.
    • Expert tasks from SoleCRIS have not been transferred yet
  • Step 2 (will be completed during weeks 42 and 43):
    • The library complements and corrects publications transferred from SoleCRIS and Julki
    • The library merges all duplicates
  • Step 3 (will be implemented during week 44):
    • The library transfers SoleCRIS expert tasks to TUNICRIS
  • The library will post an update in the intranet when all data has been transferred. Unlike previously instructed, do not compare your data with the old systems until the transfer and duplicate merger are complete.

Publication data is automatically transferred to national systems

All validated publication data is transferred automatically from TUNICRIS to the national VIRTA publication information service on a daily basis.

VIRTA publication information service is part of the Finnish national research information hub. The service brings together publications from all Finnish universities, research institutes and university hospitals. The Ministry of Education and Culture collects annual publication statistics from the VIRTA service. The same data is also used in applications and reports sent to the Academy of Finland.

All publications that have been transferred to the VIRTA publication information service are displayed in the portal and JUULI publication information portal. Statistical data on publications reported to the Ministry of Education data collection is published annually in Vipunen education statistics portal.
