University of Helsinki research portal presents the results of research

Everybody can browse the information about the publications and research activities of the University of Helsinki researchers in a public portal. Through the research portal, one can get information about the experts, publications, projects and other activities of the multidisciplinary university. Several publications can also be read openly.

Members of the research community for example add their publications and fields of science annually. We recommend that researchers also connect their ORCID identifier to their TUHAT-profile (requires UH-user login). The research information must this year be added by the January 31. The University uses the system for the reporting to the Ministry of Education and Culture and uses the collected data for example in research evaluations.

Researcher, check from our video or from the guide how you add the information to the system.
