Help with some of the more technical details of communicating your research.

Activating and editing your CV page

The CV page is perhaps the most useful channel/means of communication you have as a researcher - an information hub where you collect all your projects, publications and previous activities.

Adding a personal e-mail signature according to SLU standard

Your email signature is a quality stamp that verifies your role at SLU and provides contact information. It is important that it is uniform and recognizable to allow your email to be distinguished from spam.

Simply copy the material below and paste into Signatures in Outlook, and edit it accordingly.

Creating and updating your project web pages

A project page on the web can be a good platform and tool for communication about your research project. 

What benefits can you, as a researcher, get from a project page?

  • Link to it in your email footer to show colleagues what you are working on right now
  • Link to it in internal and external event invitations to create interest
  • Link to it in your social media posts to show the larger context of the posts
  • Link to it in a press release / news article for the readers/reporters who want in-depth information
  • Show experience of research communication in CVs and research applications
  • The project will be searchable on SLU's web and in search engines
  • Leaders and others in your network can easily tell about and refer to your project

Your entire subject area group and division also benefits from a list of project pages that offer an overview of all research carried out within your subject.  

These project pages are generally created by communications officer Anni Hoffrén, as soon as a project has been granted funding. 

The data is collected from the application (popular science summary and asbtract) and as sson as the page is published it can be found in the list of ongoing project under each subject.

It is of course important that this page is correct and updated - publications and presentations should be listed when they are published, to show results.

You send your edits and updates to the communications officer.
