The Research Information System AboCRIS

As an ÅAU-affiliated researcher you can and should register your scholarly publications in the Research Information System AboCRIS. This will increase the visibility of your research on the web and result in more funding for ÅAU, since the publications in Artur are reported to the Ministry of Education and Culture on a yearly basis.

Parallel publish when possible by uploading your publications in fulltext in AboCRIS (guides available on the intranet).

In the JUULI portal you can find information about scholarly publications from all Finnish universities.
