Correct Affiliation in Scientific Publication
In Sweden's current resource allocation model for base research funding to universities, LiU's funding can be optimized through consistent specification of researchers' affiliations as explained below.
For Researchers Only Affiliated with the University
Department, University, City, Country
Example: Department of Clinical and Experimental Medicine, Linköping University, Linköping, Sweden
For Researchers Affiliated with Region Östergötland and LiU
Medical Clinic, University Department, University, City, Country
Example: Department of Cardiology, and Department of Medical and Health Sciences, Linköping University, Linköping, Sweden
For Researchers Outside Region Östergötland But Linked to LiU
Medical Clinic, City, County Council, Department, University, City, Country
Example. Department of Cardiology, Västervik, Kalmar County Council, and Department of Medical and Health Sciences, Linköping University, Linköping, Sweden
For Researchers Affiliated with a Research Centre
You may specify two addresses. Make sure to include Linköping University in both addresses.
- Department of Radiology, and Department of Medical and Health Sciences, Linköping University, Linköping, Sweden
- Centre for Medical Image Science and Visualization (CMIV), Linköping University, Linköping Sweden
Summary for a combined address
Do not use University Hospital under any circumstances.
Always specify Linköping University.
If you would like further information, please contact the public relations officer at the Medical Faculty Daniel Windre.
Affiliation in DiVA
When registering a publication in DiVA your affiliation should be registered to reflect your complete internal affiliation at LiU (and Region Östergötland, if relevant). In most cases this will be more complete that the affiliation you specify on a publication. In DiVA, affiliation is chosen from a fixed list. In DiVA you specify a LiU division (avdelning - which is automatically coupled to a department), a faculty, an clinic at Region Östergötland (which is automatically coupled to the relevant centre at Region Östergötland) and a research centre. The example below is for a researcher at CMIV, who is double affiliated LiU/Region Östergötland:
