By default, all your active organisational unit affiliations are shown. If you hide an affiliation it may still be present on the Pure Portal on other pages, but it is not shown on your personal profile.

Highlighted content

You have the possibility to highlight your most important publications, activities, prizes, press/media and projects. If you choose not to highlight content, the newest content is used.

Fingerprints

The Fingerprint Engine mines the text of documents, i.e. publication abstracts, project summaries, patents – to create an index of weighted terms which defines the text, known as a Fingerprint visualization.   These fingerprints are used to map content. The Elsevier Fingerprint Engine uses a variety of thesauri to support applications pertaining to different subject areas. The total number of concepts is over 700,000 distinct concepts You can choose which fingerprint concepts to show in your personal profile.

How to add or remove Sustainable Development Goals keywords in your profile or publications

Portal profile

UN Sustainable Development Goals -keywords are auto-populated to ACRIS. They will be visible in your Research portal profile page and also in the individual publication page.

P‌lease note, SDG 17 (Partnerships for the Goals) is not included in the automatic job. The reason is that it is not related to any specific content but to the collaboration between other SDG related work. This can only be added manually, if you feel it satisfies the criteria as set forth by the UN. 

A complete overview of the SDGs can be found at the official UN SDG website.

    Understanding metrics in ACRIS and research.aalto.fi

    There are three metrics providers on the research.aalto.fi supplying insights into how people are interacting with your research. See below for a short introduction and links to more resources.

    Note that these metrics should always be used in conjunction with qualitative measures, have more relevance in certain disciplines, and that the ones displayed on the research.aalto.fi represent only few metrics.

    PlumX

    PlumX aims to cover a large variety of research output types (67 in total) going beyond journals and conference papers to include things such as videos, web pages, posters and exhibitions. They may provide more useful insights to research in the humanities and social sciences than more traditional measures.

    plum

    The metrics are divided into 5 categories:

    1. Usage ‐  for example the number of downloads and clicks
    2. Captures ‐ number of times an output is bookmarked/added to favorites, citations are saved
    3. Mentions ‐ where the work is mentioned on Wikipedia, blog post, in the news etc.
    4. Social media ‐ likes, shares, tweets
    5. Citations ‐ when others refer to your research, a number of citation sources are included, for example, SSRN, PubMed and policy citations

    When you click on 'see details' in the Pure Portal you can view more information for each category. Click here for more information about PlumX.

    Altmetric Doughnut

    Altmetric doughnut

    Altmetrics measure the number of times research is mentioned or captured on different platforms, for example news outlets, Twitter, Mendeley, blogs and Wikipedia.  By clicking on 'See more details' in research.aalto.fi for each individual output you can view a geographical breakdown of where in the world your research has been picked up and any posts/articles mentioning the research.

    Read more about Altmetrics.

    Citations

    Scopus citations are captured on articles, chapters, books and conference proceedings. They are most relevant to the science and engineering disciplines. Often you will have insights from Altmetrics/PlumX prior to information from Scopus. The citation count shows how many times the publication has been cited by sources indexed in Scopus. To view more details on the citation count and where the citations are sourced from: Read more about bibliometric indicators in Scopus.
