Registering research publications
In accordance with the KTH president’s decision V-2010-0482, aiming at making KTH research visible, all publications written by researchers in their capacity of KTH employees should be registered in DiVA.
Uses for DiVA
- The information in DiVA makes it possible to find the publication, not only in directly in DiVA, but also through search engines such as Google and Google Scholar.
- DiVA can be used for Open Access publishing, which makes the publications more searchable and accessible. Read more on the OA pages.
- The bibliographic information can be used for generating publication lists, importing records to reference management software and for bibliometric analyses.
- Data from DiVA is exported to other systems, for example Prisma, which is used for applications to Formas, Forte and the Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet).
Who should register?
- It is the responsibility of every researcher to make sure that their own publications are registered in DiVA and that they are correctly registered.
- Staff at the library imports publications from Web of Science and Scopus. Publications not covered by these databases must be registered by the authors themselves.
Registering step by step
- Only register published material.
- To avoid duplicates, check that the publication is not registered already.
- For registering doctoral and licentiate theses, see separate instructions.
- Log into DiVA and register your publications. Please note that help texts can be found in the registration form (marked with a question mark).
- If you have several publications registered in another database you can import them from there into DiVA, for example in Bibtex format, see the DiVA manual (pdf 1.1 MB) in english.
- Would you like to self-archive your publication? First, make sure you have the right to put a copy of your publication in DiVA, see Sherpa/Romeo . Please read our OA pages first. Your pdf will not be visible immediately after uploading it. Staff at the library will check publisher conditions etc, which may take a few days.
