The University Library provides a number of services in order to support researchers and teachers at Jönköping University.
According to university policy, researchers and postgraduate students should have their publications registered in the digital institutional repository DiVA. As a researcher you can let the library take care of the registration of your publications in DiVA. Send us information about individual publications or a list of several publications here.
As a researcher, you probably want the widest distribution of your research as possible. Therefore, a part of your publishing strategy might consist of publishing Open Access, that is, making your publications freely available by selecting an Open Access journal. You can also choose to parallel publish your work. The library offers help in checking copyright rules, as well as producing the often mandatory cover page for parallel published articles.
Contact the Library if you want to have an individual guidance regarding these issues, or if you want us to arrange a lecture on Open Access, parallel publishing and pertaining copyright aspects.
