Current News



Gutenberg Research Elements now offers users the discovery module (Research Profiles), through which scientists can publicly present their research activities via profile pages. Research Profiles enables scientists to network with each other on a larger scale and make information such as publications, professional activities, grants and projects more easily accessible. You can also find out more about the Discovery Service under the new section of our handout.


As of now, the object detail page in Gutenberg Research Elements has a new look and offers many new features. It is now possible to perform actions such as claiming and rejecting publications and managing privacy settings on the object detail page of publications or Professional activities, among others. The new features are explained in more detail in the "Object detail page" section. In addition, you can now specify the corresponding, first and last author when entering journal articles.


Due to low registration, the workshop will be rescheduled to Wednesday, January 12, 2022.

The new university bibliography is now available.

The university bibliography is a publicly accessible research system for the publications of researchers at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz.

It contains listed publications from our Gutenberg Research Elements research information system. Gutenberg Research Elements also contains all data from the former university bibliography and from Gutenberg Open Science, the JGU's open access repository.


From now on, scientists can manually enter publications of the newly added publication type “Preprints” on Gutenberg Research Elements. In addition to manual entry, preprints can also be imported from ArXiv. Further information can be found in the "FAQ - Integrating publications" section.


A manual in pdf format, which bundles all the questions and the corresponding answers, is now available here and in the download area on the homepage.


From now on, at the “professional activities” module, scientists can access a large number of options in order to specify aspects of their professional profile.

The wide range of options that can be selected is listed in "FAQ - Professional activities".

The Gutenberg Research Elements research information system is now available to all scientifically working people at JGU. In addition to professors and academic staff, this also includes administrative and technical staff.

Functional expansions are also planned in the future, so that the project will continue to develop. Information on the current status as well as updated handouts for use can be found on our homepage.


With the new software update, which was carried out on June 16, the user interface of Gutenberg Research Elements now appears in a new design. To make the transition as easy as possible for you, you will find updated handouts and FAQs on our homepage from this point on. If you have any questions or comments, you can contact the project team at any time.


From December 2020, scientists of FB 01 will also be able to enter their research information directly into Gutenberg Research Elements. The publication data from the university bibliography have already been taken over and can be accessed in Gutenberg Research Elements.

The project team offers an introductory lecture in addition to the downloadable "How to start" handouts for the pilot department II. Here you (or your secretariat and assistants) can come by with problems, questions or simply if you are interested.

We would also be happy to carry out the initial setup together with you via Skype for Business or MS-Teams.
If you have any problems or questions, you are welcome to take advantage of our support offer for the changeover to the new system.

You can access the "Gutenberg Research Elements" portal here, a FAQ on publication integration can be found here, a FAQ on data export and integration of publication lists on websites can be found here.

Due to a necessary deactivation of the former university bibliography for security reasons, the use of the former WordPress short code "publikationsliste" results in an error message on the web pages.

Currently we can offer you an alternative for the creation of individual publication lists via the research information system. Unfortunately, the display of the publication lists in table view is currently limited to two publication types (book contribution and journal article). An extended display for all publication types available in the system as well as on the level of organizational units is being planned, but may still take several months in the technical implementation.

We apologize at this point and will inform you as soon as the functionality is available.

We are currently conducting a user survey on Gutenberg Research Elements to which we would like to invite you to participate. This survey will only take about 2 minutes of your time, the evaluation of the results will be completely anonymous. Please use the following link to participate:


Since September 2020, users of the university bibliography can maintain their publication lists via the research information system. The publication data from the university bibliography have already been transferred and can be accessed in Gutenberg Research Elements. If you have any problems or queries, please feel free to take advantage of our support offer for the conversion to the new system.


From January 2020 onwards, researchers of department 08 can use Gutenberg Research Elements to claim their research information.

The project team offers a guideline «How to start», an introduction workshop and you can visit us during office hours (below). Here you can consult us with your problems, questions and other matters regarding the Current Research Information System.

We can also assist you within the initial setup of your account.
