The dispute bodies for publication data have the task of solving disputes regarding registration and association with scientific publications between institutions or locally.

The Publications Committee

The local Publications Committee  intervenes whenever there is disagreement about how a publication is to be registered and reported in CRIStin.

The Committee only handles cases where all the authors of the publication are affiliated with OsloMet - Oslo Metropolitan University.

Super users in Cristin can report cases to the local Publications Committee in case of doubts and disputes about publication category.

A formal case presentation consists of:

  • Post code
  • Presentation of the disagreement
  • Copy of relevant material (such as articles, relevant colophon pages, chapters, reviews of the publisher's web pages)

Please make sure that other departments involved receive a copy of the request to the Publications Committee.

Make sure that the case presentation is well rooted in the academic management at your department.

Report to

The cases must be reported to Tanja Strøm, secretary of the Publications Committee.

The Publishing Committee's mandate

The R&D Committee appoints the four R&D vice-deans as an advisory body to assess submitted doubts and disputes about publication categories and to provide an academically reasoned advice to the Rector in each case. The group can be supplemented with external members as needed. The administration's Cristin responsible is the secretary of the group.

The committee uses formal criteria in its assessment of selected categories. The starting point will be "Vekt på forskning", a report prepared by UHR, delivered to the Ministry of Education and Research in 2004, as well as relevant reporting instructions provided by the National Publications Committee.

The National Disputes Committee

CRIStin has been assigned the task of establishing and organising a dispute body for the three sectors.

The Dispute Body for publication data is charged with solving disputes between institutions regarding registration and association with scientific publications.
