LUCRIS is Lund University's research information system. The purpose of LUCRIS is to make the collective research of individual researchers, research groups and Lund University visible. On this page you will find an introduction to the system and other important information.

News! Fingerprint update 24th May

On the 24th of May the Fingerprint generative engine was updated. You can find more information about the change on our page for Self-help and Support.


The LUCRIS database is only available to employees at Lund University. In LUCRIS, researchers at Lund University can enter information that in some way is connected to research. The public interface to LUCRIS is called the Research Portal. The purpose of the portal is to give external visitors a picture of what research is conducted at Lund University. It is aimed at the public, the media, research funders and more.

On the following pages you will find more information about LUCRIS and the Research Portal. There is information about the different modules in LUCRIS and how to use them, as well as various tutorials and guides. Below Use LUCRIS, we are primarily targeting the researchers at Lund University. Below Administer LUCRIS, we address various employees at Lund University whose work affects LUCRIS.

Present your research with LUCRIS

LUCRIS is a relational database, which means you can create links and relationships between different information objects in the system. For example, you can link your research outputs to a project. A project can, in turn, be linked to contracts and so on. The more relationships you create, the easier it will be to find your research in the Research Portal.

There are regulations about what you as a researcher must add in LUCRIS. These regulations and minimum levels are described on the page:

Use data from LUCRIS

Information contained in LUCRIS can be retrieved in reports. The information can thus be compiled to investigate or show different aspects of the research at Lund University. It is also possible to automatically retrieve data and display it on other web pages. You can also do simpler searches and collect documents if you have a Lucat ID.

How to search

You can either watch tutorial or follow the description below to see how to search in LUCRIS.

If you are employed at Lund university (have a Lucat ID and a organisational role in Lucat) you can log into LUCRIS and search among all the information in the system. If you search directly in LUCRIS (rather than within the Research Portal) you can access certain information which is not displayed in the portal like awards. 

The example below explains how you can limit your search for research output in LUCRIS. Proceed as follows:

Step 1: Go to the "Research Output" module, by clicking on the arrow next to the "Personal" tab:

Step 2: Under the search box in the middle, remove the search filter "My content", now you search in all research outputs that are entered into the system, not just your own:

Step 3: Click on the small funnel with a plus sign after:

Step 4: Select relevant filters. To for instance find a research group select the "Organisations" filter:

Step 5: Select more filters to get the information you want. An example of a good filter is "Workflow" in which you can mark that you only want to search for publications that have been validated. In that case, click in "Validated" and "For revalidation".

Step 6: Choose which format you want to save the list in at the bottom under "Download list":
