IRIS - Institutional Research Information System

IRIS (Institutional Research Information System) is our university's catalogue of research products with a dual purpose:

  • systematically collect Sapienza's scientific production for ministerial evaluations (Research Quality Assessment - VQR, National Scientific Qualification - ASN, PhD courses validation, etc.) and University evaluations (bonuses, salary increases, etc.);
  • promote open access to research products.

IRIS is the unique tool that every lecturer must use to enter data on the products they have authored, automatically updating the loginMIUR-Cineca database.

Product entries of typologies eligible for the national scientific qualification (ASN) are subject to validation by the University library staff. These typologies are highlighted with an asterisk in the "Albero delle tipologie" available in the right-hand menu.

In each department, there is at least one "referente IRIS", who can provide support on how to include the products in the catalogue and at least one "validatore IRIS", who can provide clarify the validation procedure. For further information, please click on the documents available in the right-hand menu.

The Research Product Catalogue and Evaluation Unit periodically organises courses on the use of the catalogue, aimed at those who need to deepen their understanding of certain steps in product insertion, i.e. mainly PhD students and recruits. The courses provide an overview of how the catalogue works, with particular reference to the authors' recognition, the management of attachments, data validation, and the university's Open Access Policy indications.

The courses will be held on Meet. As soon as possible, on this webpage will be given the notice of the next editions.
