What should be entered?

Below you find a brief overview of how it works to enter information in LUCRIS and what to register.

In general, only register the outputs and activities that have a connection to the actual research at LU in LUCRIS. The exception is information added to the personal profile. For example, previous employments or other types of information in the description texts on the personal profile page.

How should the information be entered?

You enter all information into the LUCRIS database. You log in with your LUCAT ID to get access.

Most of the information entered in LUCRIS is also visible in Lund University's research portal. Some information is not displayed. For example, detailed contract information from externally funded contracts (called Awards in the system) and information or files with the status closed. The person who registers the information sets the status.

If you have questions - contact LUCRIS support!

Once you have logged in, you will enter on your personal profile page. This page shows what information you or someone else has entered or that has been imported from other systems at LU.

You will find tabs to:

  • Research output
  • Activities
  • Project
  • Awards (Externally funded contracts)
  • Prizes and distinctions 
  • Information from LUCAT
  • as well as people and organizations that through your publications and activities visualise your network.

This tab is called 'Personal Overview'. Here you can upload material and review your profile.

More information

Enter information in LUCRIS by using the appropriate module. Read more about what you can enter and how to do it on the subpages below:

Internal persons

LU employees, current and former employees, must be admitted as internal persons and their affiliation must correspond to that stated in the publication. Internal persons are illustrated with a black silhouette and when one exists, there is also a connection to the person's LUCAT. This is also what makes the publication appear in the person's list of research outputs.

People who submit publications from a previous / parallel employment at another university must also be stated as internal, BUT the current affiliation at LU must be unchecked. Read more under Change affiliation below.

External persons

An external person is illustrated by a white silhouette and has no connection to anyone in LUCAT. The person's affiliation must be added (see how under Change affiliation below). External affiliation must be added at university level, ie never a department level but, for example, Uppsala University. The higher education institutions are always written in English, many are already registered, so search first in the list. If the affiliation does not exist, click Create new to add it.

Change affiliation

To change / add affiliation or change a person from external-internal (or vice versa) on a person click Edit.

Modify or delete internal affiliates by clicking the boxes below the name. Note that only the affiliations listed in the publication should be included. Add external affiliates via Affiliate to External organization.

You can read more about how to import information from a database or using different file formats such as RIS.

Register publications from previous employment

You can also register publications that you have made before or outside your employment at LU. Please make sure to state the correct affiliation on these so that they are not counted as affiliated to LU.

Change affiliation on a record

You can easily change the affiliation of each publication, activity etcetera that you submit. You do it under your name. 

The projects show ongoing and completed research. Different types of projects can be registered, such as dissertation, research and network projects. The project gets its own page in the research portal where the different relationships added (for example to research output, activities or other projects) become visible.

What is a project?

The characteristic of projects is that it is limited in time and research activity and is registered in LUCRIS, unlike a research group which is an organizational unit and is placed in LUCAT.


The input interface is available in Swedish and English. The first time you log in, you have the option of choosing a Swedish or English interface. To change the interface language, click on your username in the upper right corner: Under Profile ⇒ Language settings.

You can also choose which language you want for the input interface (Language) in and which of the Swedish or English boxes you want to see first in cases where you can enter information in both languages ​​(Default submission language).

Some information will be added (regardless of which input language you choose) in both Swedish and English. You switch between the Swedish and  the English form, with the help of a Swedish or British flag. The flag is either directly adjacent to a specific field or you can change the input mode in the upper left corner.

When you add information under any module, you can always change the language by clicking on the Swedish or British flag. If you want both languages, fill in one language and then change languages. You will then see an empty field. Just below the flag in the upper left corner, you also have the option to select Translation. By clicking there, you get all the fields that have the opportunity to be written in both Swedish and English and thus get an overview of which fields do not have a translation.
