Oulun yliopisto tutkii database in a nutshell
The Oulun yliopisto tutkii database contains information on the publications, expert tasks, teaching merits, visits and artistic activities of the staff of the University of Oulu. It contains information on publications since 1998 and other merits since 2009.
Oulu University Library imports once a month publication data from the Web of Science database to the Oulun yliopisto tutkii database. Since the data of all publications is not imported from WoS, the authors are still responsible for the submission of the required information on their publications to the database. They are also responsible for the submission of the other information included in the database ( expert tasks etc.).
Only members of the University of Oulu staff who have user IDs for the personal information system of the University can submit information. Any Internet users can browse the database.
The guidelines for data collection related to universities’ research activities issued by the Ministry of Education have been taken into consideration when developing the database.
The purpose of the Oulun yliopisto tutkii database is to compile information on the expert tasks, teaching merits and publications of the University of Oulu staff each year and produce the related statistics necessary for evaluating and developing the activities of the departments, as well as to provide information for external and internal reports. The material gained from the database is used as background material in internal performance negotiations of the University, as well as teachers’ and researchers’ assessment discussions. The goal is also to improve promoting scientific activities and serve the needs of both researchers and the scientific community.
The following information is submitted to the database:
Publications refer to the publication activities of the University staff: articles, monographs, theses, patents, ICT software and audiovisual material. The publications will be classified according to the FOS discipline classifications. The submitted publication information will be verified at the Library.
