Create your personal webpage

Researchers at Malmö University can create a personal webpage (Forskarnavet), which visitors can search for in order to find out more information about researchers and their research. Your webpage in "Forskarnavet" gathers your contact information, links to publications, projects and other relevant web pages all in one place.


Activate and edit your webpage by typing in your username and password.


The following describes the information found on your webpage and how you can create and edit this information

1. Edit contact details

  • We retrieve the data you have entered in the staff registry at Malmö University (MAH). You can edit your information from your webpage and the information will automatically change in both systems.
  • We suggest uploading a photograph for a more personal website.
  • When you are satisfied with the information in the staff registry, click "I am a researcher" at the bottom of the page and you get new menu items on the left side. After your first login, the text will be changed into "Edit my researcher page".

2. Web pages, applications, profiles and faculties

  • Web pages: Enter titles and links to your other web pages, such as your LinkedIn profile or Twitter feeds. Leave this section empty if your MAH personal webpage is your only webpage.
  • Programmes and Profiles: Highlight your involvement in university-based programmes and research profiles.

3. Research skills and brief description

  • Research skills: We ask you to describe your competencies and research skills in two ways. First, by using a controlled vocabulary for Swedish research subjects. This makes it easier for visitors to locate your research. For a list of vocabulary in English for Swedish research subjects, please see the research competencies page. Second, you are allowed to add free keywords to describe your research in more depth.

Example: A researcher belonging to the profile of Education. In the fixed vocabulary he/she chooses "Subject didactics" and "Education" as his/her skills. Additionally, he/she writes a few free keywords such as "history didactics" and "small children's learning,” which more precisely define the focus of research.

  • If you have difficulty finding your subject key words within the controlled vocabulary, it might be that the words are not yet included in the vocabulary. Contact Charlotte Löndahl Bechmann for help.
  • Brief description: Your researcher page begins with a short sentence that summarises your research. If you need help writing this, please contact an information officer at your institution.
