Register your publication in DiVA

As a researcher at MDH, all your publications should be registered in DiVA. Any publications from previous employments should also be registered.

Why should I register my publications in DiVA?

  • The visibility of your publication will be enhanced, for instance it will become visible in SwePub and Google Scholar.
  • You can use DiVA to generate a list of publications for your CV.
  • You can automatically update your personal webpage at MDH with your latest publications.
  • The information registered in DiVA will also be used for, amongst other things, the internal allocation of research funds at MDH, as well as in national research assessments in Sweden.

How do I register publications in DiVA?

Hold off registering your publication until it has been published (unless it’s a part of a compilation dissertation). Don’t register unpublished oral presentations, nor conference papers where you lack information about when and where your paper has been published.

Start by checking that your publication isn’t already registered in DiVA , to avoid duplicates. 

You can choose to register in DiVA yourself, or you can let the library help you
