The purpose of the Ministry of Education and Culture for collecting publication data from higher education institutions, research institutions and university hospitals is to produce a knowledge base on the research activities and the social impact of the Finnish research system. The Ministry uses the publication data collected from higher education institutions not only as a knowledge base for calculating the basic funding allocated to universities and universities of applied sciences, but also for otherwise monitoring research and development activities.
For data collection, the publications are classified based on features such as their format (publication type classification), scientific quality (Publication forum) and contents (field of scientific classification). Classifications are used in an attempt to harmonise the knowledge base required for evaluating the publication activities of Finnish research organisations. The purpose of the publication data collected and the classifications applied to them is also to serve as a general national standard for outlining publication activities not only in the monitoring of research activities, but also in materials such as researcher CVs or publication lists attached to funding applications.

Publications can be coarsely divided into six groups based on their purpose and determined by the primary target group of the publication channel.
All publications by LAB staff members must be reported. Only reported publications are included in the annual Ministry of Education and Culture’s publication data collecting. It's advisable to report your publication as soon as it's out.
There is a separate form for reporting audiovisual works and IT programmes (in Finnish only, login with your AD).
Please note that the authors are responsible for reporting their own publications.
You can view and browse the reported publications in the Juuli publication data portal.

ORCID provides you a persistent digital identifier to use with your name as you engage in research, scholarship, and innovation activities. It distinguishes you from every other researcher and, through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, supports automated linkages between you and your professional activities ensuring that your work is recognized. There are already nearly 3 million ORCID users worldwide, so why not join them?
ORCID id is also included in the annual publication data collecting. Fill in your ORCID id in JUSTUS when reporting publications.
Research.fi is a service offered by the Ministry of Education and Culture that collects and shares information on research conducted in Finland. The service improves the location of information and experts on research and increases the visibility and societal impact of Finnish research.
The service was launched in June 2020 and will be developed in phases. At the moment, the service contains publications by Finnish organizations and other information on the Finnish research activities.
Research.fi replaced the Juuli-portal in November 2022.
SHERPA RoMEO is an online resource that aggregates and analyses publisher open access policies from around the world and provides summaries of self-archiving permissions and conditions of rights given to authors on a journal-by-journal basis. RoMEO is a Jisc service and has collaborative relationships with many international partners, who contribute time and effort to developing and maintaining the service.
