accedaCRIS is the scientific research portal that compiles the scientific production of the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (ULPGC) and it is part of Current Research Information System (CRIS) of this University. Therefore, it is an information management system where research data generated by the teaching and researchstaff of the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is stored and administrated. It provides a system to control and manage their publications, works, studies and everything related to their research activity.
By facilitating the recognition of the work done by our researchers, AccedaCRIS helps to find new trends and dissemination channels for their research, as well as new ways of financing their scientific production. Another main advantage of disseminating research papers in AccedaCRIS is that it provides a unique and persistent identifier (handle) for each document. Likewise, this portal allows the bibliometric analysis of the scientific production of the ULPGC faculty members. AccedaCRIS has ceased to be a simple institutional repository to become a CRIS, which allows global management of all research-related processes.
A massive upload from the Scopus, Web of Science (WoS) and Dialnet databases of the scientific production of the researchers of the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria has been made. In addition, new documentation is added weekly.
ULPGC researchers can request the inclusion of those documents that are not in AccedaCRIS, either through self-publication or self-archiving, or by requesting it via email to accessdacris.ulpgc.es.
To locate the teaching and researcher staff documentation, searches of their publications in the databases were performed using their Orcid number, Researchgate ID, Scopus ID, Google Scholar and the Dialnet ID, among other sources. The different variables of their name with which each faculty member has signed their work have also been added for its correct identification. As a benefit, researchers can see the number of citations in Scopus and WoS, information about the number of downloads of a document, as well as other metrics such as Altmetrics and Google Scholar, in real time.
This project was conducted in collaboration with the Vice-Rectorate for Research, Innovation and Transfer, the University Library and the Computing Service, using the open source software DSpace-CRIS, in compliance with the most relevant international standards to facilitate interoperability and data transfer.
