LUCRIS - research information system
LUCRIS is Lund University’s research information system. The purpose is primarily to enable the registration of research information to compile the collective research of individual researchers, research teams and Lund University as a whole. The information is presented externally via the Lund University research portal.
Your research output, such as different types of research publications, should be registered in LUCRIS. You can also register and highlight projects, collaborations and other research-related activities. Within LUCRIS, you can create links and relations between different information objects in the system. For example, you can connect publications to projects, which in turn can be connected to contracts. You can highlight contributions you have published after a conference in relation to the keynote lecture you gave at the conference. And of course, the more relations you create, the higher the visibility of your research outputs.
You can find manuals and filmed instructions on the LUCRIS webpage on Lund University Staff pages in the link below.
The library at the School of Economics and Management is automatically notified when you enter a new publication and is ultimately responsible for controlling and validating your registrations in the system. New publications in Scopus will be imported automatically by the University library staff. You are also able to import publications yourself from a selection of databases.
The system enables automatic retrieval of data for display on other websites. For example, publications entered in LUCRIS are retrieved by Google Scholar. It may be of use to note that it includes publications that are registered as “accepted/in press”; these often lack online information and may not always be controlled until registered as published. You can delete unwanted entries in Google Scholar yourself.
Lund University School of Economics and Management (LUSEM) has a minimum standard for what needs to be included in your personal profile in LUCRIS. You will find a guide below covering the information that LUSEM’s Management Team requires researchers to register.
ORCID is an international researcher ID used by many publishers and funders, that provides a persistent digital identifier (an ORCID iD). You can connect your ORCID iD with your affiliations, publications etc. to ensure you get recognition for all your contributions, and to reduce the risk of errors. For you, as a researcher, it is an easy way to make sure that your outcome is attributed to you and not anyone else´s with the same or a similar name.
Lund University is a member of the ORCID consortium and offers you as a researcher to connect your ORCID to your LU account (LUCAT). If you do so, your ORCID is imported from LUCAT to LUCRIS and becomes visible in your personal public page at LU´s Research Portal. You can then choose to export information from LUCRIS to your ORCID profile. This means that you do not have to manually update your ORCID profile with new publications as long as you add them to LUCRIS. The connection ORCID-LUCAT and LUCRIS-ORCID is something that you as a researcher switch on; it is optional.
During the autumn of 2021 the externally accessible site of LUCRIS, the Research Portal, will receive a new and improved interface. There will be no major changes in the backend database LUCRIS, but mainly in how information is displayed to our external visitors on the Research Portal.
Some of the new features in the improved interface are for example Network/Collaboration maps, which will illustrate external collaborations, both on personal and organizational levels, and Fingerprint which is a new search layer that allows you to find related information in the system based on automatically generated keywords. There will also be a new appearance to an organization’s (faculty / department / research group etc.) page in the Research Portal in the new interface, with some added features.
For more information, filmed presentations and news about the launch of the new interface, please visit the research portal webpage on Lund University Staff pages.
