ACRIS data used for reporting to Ministry of Education

It is time to start collecting data for the Ministry of Education reporting.

This year is the first year that the data is collected through the new research information system, ACRIS (

The Ministry of Education financing (up to 13%) depends on the number and quality of our publications. Thus, it is imperative that all relevant research results are available in the ACRIS database. Please make sure that your own data is up to date.
