  • Facilitate and support researchers when entering data into LUCRIS. As reviewer and support for questions regarding registration of research output, you have an important task of communicating with the researchers whose data you validate.

Support and common practice

There are two documents to facilitate with the review work. The common guidelines was decided by LUB's management council on 19 January 2016.

FAQ for Validation in LUCRIS

In the case of interdisciplinary collaborations, the review right only ends up on one of these units, to access a publication it is easiest to hover over the list in which the publication is visible from within the system, at the end of the line there is a gear wheel. Click on the gear and 'Claim this content'. You get a free text box and can just write 'want to review' and the central administration grants access.

When entering a publication that was published outside or before taking up a position at Lund Unviersity, 'External Affiliation' must always be used. 'External organization' must always be listed at its top node, for example Copenhagen University (no subdivisions). Current affiliation should not be stated.

If the author indicated both an affiliation with Lund University and an external organization in the research output, then both the Lund University affiliation and the External Affiliation for the author must be added.
