Haris - Hanken research database

Guide to Haris - Hanken's research database

Edit your profile

Haris is integrated with Hanken’s website, so a Hanken researcher’s profile in Haris is exposed also on Hanken’s web. The profile information and the metadata in Haris are used on your researcher page in Haris public portal as well, and can be used in CVs made in Haris in different ways for various purposes. Haris proves to be a useful tool to disseminate information about your research in different channels.

Therefore, we recommend that you upload a profile picture, add details about your education, research interests and career, and shortly describe your curriculum, in order to enrich the information on your personal homepage. If possible, add the information both in English and in Swedish.

Create and connect your ORCID ID in Haris

ORCID (Open Researcher & Contributor Identifier) ( provides researchers and authors a unique and permanent digital identifier that can be used throughout research and publishing lifecycles. Open to all, non-profit and community-driven, ORCID is a non-proprietary standard maintained by the scholarly community for the benefit of research and researchers. It is of value to all career stages, from postgraduate research students to the senior academics.

ORCID ID solves the name ambiguity problem. Names change over time. ORCID addresses this problem by allocating each researcher a unique, persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher, and by making this registry publicly available and searchable.

ORCID ID also enables all of your research outputs to be automatically linked to each other. You can maintain all your key information and contributions in one place. ORCID will, over time, reduce the need to enter the same personal and publication data into many different systems.

It is useful to give your ORCID ID, for example, in funding applications, submitted manuscripts and CV. Some publishers and funders require your ORCID identifier.

Haris includes a field for authors to record your ORCID ID. If you have an ORCID ID, you can add it into Haris by clicking Edit profile > Create or Connect your ORCID ID.

If you do not have one yet, you can apply for one easily at
