National Researcher's Profile Tool launched

Researchers can create a nationally visible profile in Research.fi portal. Profile is compiled with information transferred from organisations and ORCID service and information already transferred to Research.fi. Released in November 2022 as a beta version, the Researcher's Profile Tool was officially launched on 25 May 2023.

The Researcher's Profile Tool is meant for all experts working in research. The Researcher's Profile Tool gives you a view of what kind of information about you and your research activities are stored in different databases and combine existing data to a national profile that remains under your control regardless of workplace and affiliation.

Research.fi helps media, companies, publishers, financiers, law makers, decision makers and other interested in research and its results find experts in one place.

The version released after the beta version has been developed as follows:

  • User interface functionality has been improved (e.g. hiding and republishing the profile)
  • Data transfer from ORCID has been expanded (e.g. activities, research data and research projects)
  • Updating the profile data has been developed (data changes from all sources are updated automatically, new data is not automatically published without consent)

Researchers can create a profile in Research.fi by logging in with ORCID and identifying through Suomi.fi. For the profile, they can choose information from ORCID, their home organizations and Research.fi portal, which contains information e.g. on publications and research data. Researchers can decide on their own which information to publish and to which parties the information may be disclosed in the future.

Research.fi, the service by the Ministry of Education and Culture and CSC, gives you single-source access to information on research in Finland. It contains information on the Finnish research system, publications of Finnish organizations, projects funded by public and private parties, statistical data on research personnel and funding as well as bibliometric information on publishing activities.
