All publication data and academic activities of Tampere University and Tampere University Hospital (Tays) are maintained in the TUNICRIS research information system.
TUNICRIS provides an up-to-date view of the university's and Tays'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. The amount, quality and open access of publications impacts university funding.
Data can be imported into TUNICRIS from a number of databases and services (e.g., Scopus, WoS, PubMed, ORCID, Scival, Publication Forum, Altmetric.com, 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.
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 Research.fi portal. Statistical data on publications reported to the Ministry of Education data collection is published annually in Vipunen education statistics portal.
You may retrieve publication information from VIRTA publication information service for example in Academy of Finland’s applications. More information can be found on page Academy of Finland and VIRTA publication information service.
