Publication Policy for researchers

På svenska 

Publication Policy for researchers at the Faculty of Technology and Society, Malmö University

  1. Publish primarily in international forums that are considered leading in the field. If possible, publish in journals indexed in the Web of Knowledge (http://ip-science.thomsonreuters.com/mjl). One of the reasons for this is that both the government and MAH's management have decided that a certain portion of the research funds should be allocated according to the number of publications in these journals (or, more specifically, the number of citations of publications in these journals over a three-year period).

  2. When publishing conference papers, try, if possible, to do so in proceedings which are reputable and indexed in recognized and available databases such as Scopus (http://www.scopus.com/) or IEEE (http://ieeexplore.ieee.org). [1] In order to determine the quality of the proceedings, as well as other types of omnibuses, the Norwegian publishing channel list can be used (http://dbh.nsd.uib.no/kanaler/). There are also a number of other unofficial ranking lists available via the WWW that can be consulted.

  3. MAH's Open Access Policy (http://www.mah.se/bit/press/openaccess_sve) should be observed. Among other things, all published documents should be inserted as both bibliographic references in MUEP (http://dspace.mah.se/) and full text files if the copyright legislation allows it.

  4. To facilitate performance monitoring, it is recommended that every researcher in the faculty who receive faculty funding have personal profiles on Google Scholar (http://scholar.google.se/) and Researcher ID (http://www.researcherid.com). [2] The researcher is responsible for ensuring respective publication lists are complete, accurate and updated. The publication list in Researcher ID should include only publications included in the Web of Knowledge, while the list of publications on Google Scholar should contain as many of the researcher's publications as possible.

For Malmö University, Catarina Coquand, Dean

[1 ] Conference publishing has a particularly strong tradition in Computer Science. Examples of appropriate proceedings are those published by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). Conference papers published in these proceedings have been shown to generate citation volumes comparable to journal articles.
