How to register research results? Projects in Cristin

Important information

During the autumn of 2018, HVL will launch its new institutional structure into Cristin. All our scientific staffs’ CRIStin-profiles and previously registered publications will be updated accordingly.

If you are unable to log in to Cristin with your FEIDE account, please contact your local Cristin contact.

What should be registered and what qualifies for publication points?

All scientific activities and publications must be registered in Cristin.

However, only certain forms of publication qualifies for publication points. This goes for scientific articles, monographs and chapters in anthologies published in channels approved for level 1 or 2 in The Norwegian Register for Scientific Journals, Series and Publishers.

Please visit NSD to learn more about publication points and how they affect the financial model for universities and university colleges.
