  • TUCS Publication Database updated
    We ran today a script in TUCS that went through all the 6800 publications in the TUCS Publication Database. The script discovered 1350 publications that it determined to have a correctly spelled publication forum that entitles the publication for a rating, although the publication did not already have the rating. The script assigned these publications with a rating.

    This means, that all your publications in the TUCS Publication Database now have a Federation of Finnish Learned Societies Publication Forums rating (TSV:n julkaisufoorumiluokitus) which is valid for the Finnish Ministry of Education, if the publication data has the correctly spelled information on a rated forum. You can confirm this by searching for your own publications. We trust this to be helpful to the whole TUCS community and to save you a lot of work to go through your publications and edit them each separately.
