Introduction of a Research Information System

Like most other research facilities in Germany, the University of Lübeck has committed itself to implementing the recommendations of the Council of Science and Humanities for a core research data set. The provision of this data framework makes it possible to respond to the increasing reporting obligations on research input and output at research institutions.

In the long term, the operation of a research information system (RIS) will make work considerably easier and increase efficiency in research reporting for all participants. Such a system also offers researchers a number of work simplifications: automatic CVs, reports for collaborations, evaluations of collaborations and much more.

The University of Lübeck has opted for the RIS PURE of the Elsevier company and, under the direction of Prof. Dr. med. Werner Solbach and Mrs. Christina Catana-Hoppe, has begun its introduction.

The previous introduction process took place in the following phases:

1. procurement and implementation (2015-2016)

2. designing the content, ethical and technical framework with a pilot group (2016-2018)

3. connection of university and UKSH employee data via IDM (Phase I 2017-2018, Phase II 2018-2019)

5. start of the feed-in of publications (SS 2018)

4. training of the PURE officers (editors) of all institutions (since winter term 2018/2019)


=> Opening for internal operation with data validation and feedback by scientific users: SS 2019

Employees can now also find PURE links and the group for editors on the intranet.
