Acknowledging research infrastructures in ACRIS

Funding agencies partially base their decisions on infrastructure usage and research output, making it crucial to acknowledge research infrastructure in your publications. This guide helps you link your ACRIS research output records to Aalto University research infrastructure, equipment, and facilities (RI) information.

If you've utilized Aalto infrastructure for your research:

  1. Include acknowledgments in your research output (e.g., journal articles or conference papers):
    • … The computational resources provided by  Aalto Science-IT are  acknowledged…
    • … The authors acknowledge the provision of facilities  and  technical support by Aalto University OtaNano – Nanofabrication Centre, Otanano -Nanomicroscopy Center  and  Science-IT….
    • The authors acknowledge the Aalto University  Bioeconomy research infrastructure as well as Raw Materials Research Infrastructure
  2. ACRIS staff will link the infrastructure to the research output record during the publication's importing/validation process:
    • Staff checks acknowledgments included in the publications.
    • Staff adds links to infrastructure based on acknowledgments.
  3. When adding a new research output record to ACRIS, link the infrastructure to the record (publication metadata):
    • See Instructions on how to add an article record to ACRIS
    • Scroll down the record to Relations-section 
    • Select Facilities/Equipment and search for the appropriate infra by typing the infra’s name into the search field (list of infra names available below)
    • Click Save to close the form 
  4. Check your ACRIS research output records for missing infrastructure links: 
    • Add missing links yourself or contact [email protected] for assistance.
    • Open your ACRIS profile and click Edit Profile.
    • Click Relations and choose My Output Records.
    • Open output records where you've utilized infrastructure.
    • Scroll down to the Relations section and check Facilities/Equipment.
    • Add links to infrastructure as needed.

Note: Certain infrastructures encompass sub-infrastructures. When linking to a publication, it's essential to connect both the main infrastructure and its associated sub-infrastructure.
