Research Information System

Welcome to Kiel University’s Current Research Information System!

The Current Research Information System (CRIS) is a central database system. It combines, depicts and administrates Kiel University’s multifaceted research activities. The CRIS facilitates registering, mapping and reuse  of publications, speeches , projects, memberships, awards and other research activities.

You can find detailed information on how to use the CRIS practically, within the university's network, via Information for Kiel University members.

Benefits for researchers …

  • user-friendly interface for easy capturing and (re-)using of information on various research results, e.g.
    • import publication information from diverse sources
    • linked to MACAU
    • visualise your network
    • search within the CRIS
  • assemble information for diverse usage cases (for instance, lists of publications, CVs etc.) and export them to common formats for use outside the CRIS
  • automated publication list on your personal Kiel University-website


Benefits for the administration (on a central as well as institutional level)…

  • transparent, quality assured, and validated research information
  • re-use of data (instead of compiling it repeatedly)
  • a central, well-arranged and validated system supports compiling and using research information at Kiel University (e.g. to create research reports)
