Write and publish

When you are writing a work or publishing your work in DiVA, Research Catalog or SKH's publication series X Position, here are some tips and resources.


SKH's own publication series is called X Position and is a channel for publishing senior research but also doctoral theses and development work. A template has been developed to facilitate layout, but other forms of publishing are also possible. Contributions to the series must be approved by the Research Center and the Library and Archives.

Link to current list of the series' publications in LIBRIS.


Completed and approved student essays, doctoral dissertations and other research are registered and published in DiVA (Digital Scientific Archive). Publishing work in DiVA means that the work is spread not only national but also international as various search engines capture these academic works.

Templete Title Page for Student thesis DiVA

The title page should contain the parts and the formatting shown in the document Title page student thesis.
Last on the page, SKH's logotype should be put. 
Do not copy the template and paste it into your document as it may interfere with the rest of the formatting. Create instead the title page in the format you alreade have choosen for your document and see to that it looks like the template. Keep in mind that this will be a separate page that can affect the page numbering.

Reference management tool

The library at SKH recommends Zotero, as it is a free reference management program, which means that you can use Zotero even after you have left as an employee or student at SKH. Zotero has been built up with generous support from a number of American funds and foundations and lots of non-profit work. It is a really good program with very few bugs or problems and more and more Swedish universities recommend Zotero.
