All articles, monographs, theses, patents and other protected inventions, computer programs and audio-visual products from Tampere University and Pirkanmaa Hospital District are registered to TUNICRIS. Publications are classified according to the Finnish Ministry of Education and Culture publication type classification. The library validates all publication data. More information on publication data collection and publication types: Publication data collection instructions for researchers.
Publication data imports
New publications published by the Tampere University and Pirkanmaa Hospital District are automatically imported from Web of Science, Scopus and Pubmed databases to TUNICRIS. However, publications in Finnish language and many conference publications are not generally indexed in these databases and such publications have to be added manually.
Keep your profile and publications up-to date
Researchers are responsible for their own publication data in TUNICRIS. Please make sure that you save all publications that cannot be found through automatic imports. You can also modify and supplement imported publications if necessary. You must also report incorrect publications and other errors in your profile.
All publications of the Tampere University and Pirkanmaa Hospital District are registered in TUNICRIS. The publication must be related to the author's research work and expertise.
Registering publications as the university's outputs are determined by the affiliation displayed in the publication and by the university's resourcing.
Affiliation means that Tampere University (Tampereen yliopisto) is mentioned with the author's name in the publication. However, the affiliation shown in the publication alone is not necessarily sufficient to say that the publication is the university's output. See also Affiliations in publications.
Resourcing means that the university has supported the creation of the publication. The author has received salary from the university during the research work or the university has made the creation of the publication possible by providing resources and work environment (equipment, materials, research group) or guidance (e.g. doctoral students and researchers with grants). Resourcing can be verified by a contract of employment, resource agreement or an emeritus or emerita agreement.
For more information on contracts, please contact the HR specialist of your unit.
It is important for the visibility of the university and researchers that the university’s name is displayed correctly already in the manuscript of a publication, from where it will be indexed to international and national reference databases.
Write your contact information clearly into your publication. Mark the name of the university first. Use the form: University, Faculty, City, Country.
All publications are not indexed to international or domestic reference databases. Publications can also be indexed after a delay of up to a year from the original publication date. In such a case it is best to add the publication manually so that the publication is included in reporting and statistics.
Before saving a publication manually, use the TUNICRIS search to check that someone else has not already imported or saved the same publication. If the publication is already saved in TUNICRIS, you can add it to your profile by using the Claim function. The library then checks the publication data again.
The following publications are generally saved manually:
