Research support services
The faculty’s research representative
Per Lundberg, professor at the Department of Biology, is the faculty’s research representative. You can turn to Lundberg if you require support or have questions about research activities (for example, questions regarding publication, author responsibility or research collaborations). The research representatives have a three year term of office, report annually to the faculty management and are part of a faculty-wide network.
Publish, manage and preserve your research
When you are to publish your results, you need to choose the journal to which you will submit your manuscript. As a researcher or doctoral student, you also have a special responsibility for ensuring the greatest possible degree of open access when publishing. The Library of Science offers support in matters concerning publication in journals.
Data management is something that permeates the entire research process, and well- thought-out and planned data management is a precondition for open research data. You may need to consider many different aspects before, during and after your project. The Library of Science offers support in matters concerning research data management.
Preserving your research documents is not just about making an impression. The research you are conducting today may prove to be an invaluable source for tomorrow’s researchers. It is therefore important that you know which research documents are to be saved and which are to be destroyed.
Register your research in the LUCRIS research database
Registering your research in the LUCRIS research database makes your research accessible to both colleagues and wider society. The information you register becomes visible in Lund University’s Research Portal, which is the University’s outward channel regarding research. LUCRIS is also an important tool in evaluations of the University’s research.
As a researcher or doctoral student, you are responsible for registering information about your research according to the faculty’s guidelines and for keeping the information updated.
Get assistance with publication and citation analysis
Publication and citation analysis – under the umbrella term of bibliometrics – involves quantitative statistical analyses of research publications. This includes the measurement of productivity in the form of the number of publications, the measurement of publications’ impact in the form of citations and producing and visualising collaboration patterns and subject structures. The Library of Science offers help and support regarding publication and citation analysis.
