Research reporting


All scientific publications and dissemination must be registered in Cristin
(Current Research Information System in Norway). Each author/researcher is responsible for registering their own results.

All doctoral dissertations should be archived in DiVA (Digital Archive for NTNU). You will still be able to opt out of electronic publishing, but the dissertation itself must still be filed.

Guidelines for the crediting of scientific publications to institutions

The general rule is that a doctoral candidate should list both the degree-giving and collaborative institutions in publications that are part of the thesis work. It requires that both parties actually contribute with guidance on the candidate's publications. This means that NTNU is used as the author's address in addition to the candidate's employer if NTNU have provided a "significant contribution" through the guidance, equipment, working or otherwise. The guidelines support of this the parties' joint responsibility to the candidate in the PhD program. Guidelines with examples (in Norwegian).

Search or registration of publication channels

NSD (Norsk samfunnsvitenskapelig datatjeneste) is responsible for the Norwegian register of scientific journals, series and publishers. Suggestions for new ordinary scientific publishing channels (level 1) should be directed to and processed by NSD. NSD convey these to UHRs publication committee, which has overall responsibility for the final approval of the channels.

Nomination to the channels with the highest international prestige (level 2) is done in a separate process by the Department/faculty and under the auspices of the publishing committee and national strategical organs. The lists are revised annually.
