Web application E-CRIS which the Institute of Information Sciences in Maribor (IZUM) has offered for free to the users of COBISS applications has the aim to establish a record of researchers and research institutions in the Republic of Macedonia.
E-CRIS database is necessary for monitoring and evaluation of the results of research carried out in the framework of several national library information systems of COBISS.Net. The national E-CRIS system is connected to the national library information system COBISS, and provides direct insight into the biographical and bibliographical data on researchers and research organizations. National E-CRIS system includes a database for researchers, research organizations and departments, and research projects. The data in the database are interconnected. The data in the database are listed in Macedonian and English language.
The information system for research activity in Macedonia is managed by the National Library "St. Kliment Ohridski", which functions as a national E-CRIS center. E-CRIS.МК is connected to the information system COBISS.MK, i.e. with its bibliographic database COBIB.MK, in which some of the Macedonian libraries have already created bibliographic records for bibliographies of researchers.
