Publication reporting


Scientific publications produced by higher education institutions, research institutions and university hospitals must be yearly reported to the Ministry of Education and Culture. The purpose of the Ministry of Education and Culture for collecting publication data is to get a knowledge base on the research activities and the social impact of the Finnish research system. The Ministry uses the publication data collected from higher education institutions for calculating the basic funding allocated to universities and universities of applied sciences, but also for otherwise monitoring research and development activities.

Statistics on the number of publications are available in the Vipunen statistics service (see below) of the Finnish National Board of Education. The publication data collected can be openly viewed in the JUULI publication data portal (see below). In addition, the national information resource, VIRTA publication data service, will make the information produced by publications within the Finnish research system available for other services.

At UEF, researchers report their publications to UEF CRIS (more information in 4. module: Publishing and Research Visibility). In UEF CRIS, you may explore the UEF experts, their publications, projects and scientific activities. ( ( is a service offered by the Ministry of Education and Culture that collects and shares information on research conducted in Finland. The service improves the location of information and experts on research and increases the visibility and societal impact of Finnish research. The service was launched in June 2020 and will be developed in phases. logo

In Juuli portal there is no citation information or any bibliometric indexes, but you can find publications by organisations, the fields of science, publication types, languages, years etc.Screen capture on JUULI database. In advanced search you can e.g. limit your search to institution, field of science, type of publication, suborganization, publication forum class or open access type.

University-specific publication data can be browsed in the research information systems of each university.
