SLU publication database

SLUpub is the university's publication database, a system for creating full bibliographic coverage of all SLU publications. SLUpub is also a tool for following up performance within units and faculties as well as for the university as a whole.

Open Access

Open Access means making scientific texts freely available online, for instance in the Epsilon archives. Since 2008, the SLU has an Open Access policy where the vice-chancellor asks SLU scientists to make their publications available as Open Access. Learn more using the links to the left.


Bibliometrics is an information science utilizing a set of methods such as citation analysis to study scientific publication patterns and impact.
