On this page, you will find information about LUCRIS and what you need to register in the system according to the Faculty of Social Sciences' minimum level.
LUCRIS is Lund University’s central research information system. It consists of a user interface, LUCRIS, for entering and managing information, and a public portal, the Research Portal.
LUCRIS helps you to reach out with your research
Through the Research Portal, researcher colleagues, students, journalists and an interested general public can find your research. The portal can help to highlight and show interdisciplinary collaborations. You can show which collaborations you are involved in, what publications you have authored and other activities generated by your research.
LUCRIS provides an overview of how your projects relate to publications, activities and other relevant information entered into LUCRIS. Just make sure that you link them together!
Through LUCRIS, your public research results are exported to other systems such as SwePub.
Research can also be highlighted on faculty websites through links to LUCRIS. The basic idea is that all research “lives” in LUCRIS, while our websites are windows looking in on it.
You can also re-use the information you have entered into LUCRIS, for example by exporting the information to a personal CV.
All research active staff at the Faculty of Social Sciences are to register the following information and ensure it is kept up-to-date. (According to decision by the Faculty Board 2019-06-13)
The annual deadline for registration is 1 March.
- Current popular science description of your research, in Swedish and English
- Profile photo, at least 600x600 px (1:1 Square)
- Subject classification according to the Swedish Higher Education Authority (maximum of three alternatives) to describe your research
All publications are to be added in accordance with the current vice-chancellor’s decision and linked to the relevant project or activity:
- Articles (in academic journals or other publications/journals)
- Book chapters
- Conference publications (contributions to proceedings, abstracts on conference websites, posters etc.)
Projects are those related to research, commissioned research, doctoral theses (“dissertations” in LUCRIS) or networks.
- Title (in Swedish and English)
- Short project description (in Swedish and English)
- Project participants and their roles in the project. The Project Manager (primary investigator, PI) is responsible for this. (For doctoral thesis projects the doctoral student registers as PI and enters the principal supervisor and supervisor)
- First year and intended final year
- Subject classification according to the Swedish Higher Education Authority
The minimum requirement for registration in LUCRIS for organisations
Organisational units at the faculty that conduct research activities are to ensure that LUCAT features a description of the research in Swedish and English and an official translation of the unit name into English. This information is then exported to LUCRIS. Photos can be added in LUCRIS.

The aim of the research information system is to register and showcase not only Lund University’s research publications, but also projects, collaborations and other research-related activities. Gathering this information in one place provides a good overview of our researchers and our research activities.
LUCRIS is also used in the University’s and the faculties’ work on evaluations, planning and strategy. The information registered in LUCRIS can be highlighted in reports, which can form the basis for strategies and decisions.
