SLUpub is the university's publication database. This web page contains information about the system itself and what it means for SLU and for you as an employee.
What is SLUpub?
SLUpub is the publication database of SLU, where everyting published at the university is registered. The system is used for evaluations at a university or department level, and is also a tool that makes it easy to show your research on the web. Another important part is the export of publication data to the national system SwePub.
What do you as a scholar need to do?
As a scholar of SLU, you should register all your published texts in SLUpub, both scientific and popular science publications. The latter should be well documented in SLUpub since the university’s interactions with the surrounding society are increasingly emphasized, both nationally and internationally.
Any publications with full text files attached can be automatically exported to Epsilon, so you do not have to register your material in two places. Read more about the connection between SLUpub and Epsilon here.
The public search function makes it easy to create lists on your own or your departments publications.
Careful validation gives a high data quality
All registered publications are validated by the library before becoming public. Some SLU departments have so called unit validators that check all registered publications on a departmental level, with special care for details such as author affiliation. This creates a more rapid workflow in the system and facilitates the library's final validation. A correct affiliation is a key when it comes to allocations and different kinds of follow ups. Some departemental validators also register all publications on behalf of the authors.
