ORCID supports interoperability

ORCID is non-profit organisation visioning "a world where all who participate in research, scholarship, and innovation are uniquely identified and connected to their contributions across disciplines, borders, and time." Read more here.

If you allow, University of Helsinki weekly exports your data from Tuhat to ORCID. To include your data in this export, please read instructions here. This is what is being experted and how it supports your researcg profile:  

  • Institutional organizational affiliation -> Use ORCID already in publication submission. Publishers can confirm your University of Helsinki affiliation from
  • Other personal identifiers (e.g. Scopus author ID, Researcher ID) -> ORCID links your your publications from Scopus and Web of Science to your ORCID identifier.
  • Your Tuhat portal URL -> Visible in your ORCID profile page, a link from ORCID to Tuhat ortal, and the other way round. Use ORCID in all your websites.
  • Your research outputs, where publication state is either E-pub ahead of print or Published, visibility of the record is Public - No restriction, workflow status is Approved -> Publication DOI (Digital Object Identifier) connects your Tuhat publications with publications in Scopus and Web of Science, and also shows all these in your ORCID profile.


With KUDOS you can explain your publications in plain language, share them with social networks and then measure the effect.

Reporting on Three-year Research Projects (a UH funding type)

Three-year grant is a University of Helsinki funding type, read more about the grant in Flamma.

The awarded three-year grant is conditional, and requires that the Board of the University allocates the necessary funding when it decides on the University’s target programme and the budget for those years. In addition, the University monitors the progress and impact of research projects through reports.

University of Helsinki three-year projects are reported to Tuhat (links below go to submission instructions):

  • Create the three-year project to Tuhat as a Project. For project type, please select "University of Helsinki Three-Year Research Project"
  • Add all project participants to Project.
  • Add relation from Project to other Tuhat content created with this funding. 

    You need to first create Publication, Impact and Actitivities records and then create relation from Project:
    • Create relation from Project to Awards (funding wbs). Awards are automatically imported from financial system and should be available for you.
    • Create publications. Add relation from Project to Publications. 
    • Create impact. Describe the special significance of the three-year research grant for the project manager's progress of research and/or research career. Use impact category "Other impact". Set the visibility to "Confidential", which restricts this information to you and Tuhat administrators. Create relation from Project to Impact.
    • Create activities. Create relation from Project to activities.
  • You are done!
