Register your publication in DiVA
All MDH researchers need to register their publications in the university repository, DiVA. Below you'll find some points to facilitate quick and correct registration.
What should I register in DiVA?
As a researcher at MDH, all your publications should be registered in DiVA. Any publications from previous employments should also be registered.
Before I start
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 Don’t register unpublished oral presentations, nor conference papers where you lack information about when and where your paper has been published.
Why should I register my publications in DiVA?
Registering in DiVA will enhance the visibility of your publication; after registration, it will also be found in, for instance, SwePub and Google Scholar. You will also be able to use DiVA to generate a list of publication for your CV and to automatically update your personal webpage at MDH with your latest publications.
The publication information you register in DiVA will also be used for, amongst other things, the internal allocation of research fund at MDH, as well as in national research assessments in Sweden. By adhering to instructions on these pages you’ll avoid the risk of having your publications wrongfully excluded from these kind of assessment exercises.
