CRIS and Research Publication

What is CRIS?

CRIS is a Current Research Information System that helps researchers to organize and enhance their professional profiles with information on scholarly activities, intellectual property, creative works and more. CRIS helps you to showcase your professional expertise and achievements, improve your research visibility, build connections for potential collaborations, and advance your professional career.

Why is CRIS important for the researchers' career?

(From: elsevier.com)
“The rich functionality of the Pure Portal (CRIS) reduces time spent searching for researchers and accelerates the identification of expert collaborators from across disciplines, thus facilitating more effective and productive partnerships.”

The system facilitates an evidence-based execution of strategy, leading to increased funding, more international collaboration and greater research visibility.
Making researcher and departmental profiles searchable helps building stronger collaborative networks on campus and with other institutions.

The following introduction video by Elsevier presents the most important benefits of CRIS in Pure and Scopus (starting 0:59):

Get started: The Researcher Profile

The Researcher Profile provides a unique identification number for each author.
The identification number helps 
finding and recognizing specific authors, avoiding the confusion caused by similar names etc.
Thanks to the unique Author Identifier, your information and publications will remain associated with you, even if you move to another institution or change your name.
The unique Author Identifier also helps to avoid mismatches when it comes to name variations or spelling errors etc.

The following Scopus video tutorial shows how to confirm your Author Identifier on Scopus (Scopus ID) and avoid mistakes or duplicates:

The most useful Author Identifiers are:
Scopus Author ID, Researcher ID and ORCID.

Click here for the library’s Profiling and Identity guide.

The unique Author Identifier links your publications to you.
It is especially helpful when:

  • There are various ways to spell your name (for example: John or Jon)
  • Differently formatted names appear in one source (for example: John Smith and J. Smith)
  • You have more than one name (for example: John Tom Smith, John T. Smith)
  • In case of typo errors (for example: John Smth)
  • To avoid any confusion caused by common names (different researchers with the same name)

Recommended Author Identifiers for CRIS:
Scopus Author ID, Researcher ID and ORCID.

Step 1. Check and update your Author ID

A Scopus Author ID is automatically generated the first time one of your publications is indexed in Scopus.
Scopus will sometimes generate multiple IDs for the same author, due to name spelling variations.
To solve this and to optimize the citation metrics, request to merge your author IDs.

Useful links:

Create a Publons profile, or sign in with your Thomson Reuters username and password (this can be the username for your ResearcherID, Web of Science or Endnote). Next, load your documents from either Web of Science or Endnote to associate them with your new identification number.
