BASIC FUNCTIONS OF THE SINUS SYSTEM The most important functions of the SINUS system are presented below:
Statistics and reports The SINUS system offers statistics at the level of institutions and organizational units such as faculties (number of publications by types, scores, years). In addition, detailed reports in spreadsheets (compatible with Excel) are available with information on scores (Ministry of Science and Higher Education, JCR), authorship in Polish and foreign languages, popular science and popularizing items. The system also generates lists of publications in Excel, which can be filtered by departments, years, publication types, author, MNiSW and IF scores, open access, conference materials, source, WoS, or PBN identifier.
Displaying information on the portal WWW Users have at their disposal information on employees, publications, organizational structure of the unit, magazines, etc. As part of information on publications, there are e.g. links to authors and sources, links to the doi.org portal (DOI identifiers), information on citations (from the altmetic.com system), scores of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education and IF, as well as information about WoS and the license.
Involvement of employees in the editorial process The SINUS system enables university employees to enter data on publications, which simplifies the process of supplying the system with data. This information is then verified by the portal's editors and, if necessary, supplemented accordingly.
Affiliations and appeals The SINUS system data model has been prepared in such a way that it is possible to take into account the changing affiliations and appeals of employees, i.e. a given person is uniquely identified by the system regardless of appeals and affiliations. Changes over time do not erase previously stored information.
Profile of the scientist and the individual The profile of the scientist / employee contains information about PBN ID, ResearcherID, ORCID, Google Scholar with a link to the profile on the relevant portal, as well as information about publications. The profile of an organizational unit contains publications of its employees and basic information about the organizational unit.
Administration tools The set of administrative tools in the SINUS system includes the import of data from the PBN format (e.g. during the initial system initialization), import of information on employees and the organizational structure of the institution, conference management with duplicate detection and the possibility of merging conferences, as well as the analysis of duplicate publications and a login module change history.
EDITORIAL SUPPORT Editors of the SINUS system have at their disposal e.g. the following functions:
Autocomplete The autocomplete function works at the level of entire forms, i.e. the system is able to fill in, for example, the entire form related to the author on the basis of data previously entered into the system. The autocomplete mechanism works, among others in terms of authors, conferences and journals.
Defined data entry process The SINUS system has a flexible process of entering, modifying and validating data. Data entry itself is done with the use of wizards that facilitate and systematize the entire process. Data validation, in turn, includes verification of e.g. external links (e.g. DOI), required fields, numerical values, ISSN and ISBN.
Full view of the publication Editors logged into the portal can see all information related to the publication or other objects in the system. Even if a field is not filled in, it is displayed in the portal without a filled value. Thanks to this, editors are able to more easily assess what is missing in the description of the publication (which should still be supplemented).
Permission configuration Editors can set permissions for portal resources in three ways. This right may be assigned to the user, it may be granted at the public level (every unregistered portal user has access to information) or it may be granted at the level of the IP address of the computer from which the portal website is accessed.
