Register a Book (not Anthology/Collection)
Note the distinction between a book and an anthology. An anthology is a collection of chapters, written by different authors, with a single or small number of editors. If you are one of the editors, register this as an Anthology not a book. A book is a publication with an ISBN, written entirely by a single person or a small number of people.
Before you start register...
First check in DiVA if the publication already is registered by searching for the publication in DiVA . Do not register a publication already published in DiVA!
Do not register a book with the status In Press or forthcoming. The book must be published before it can be registered.
Note: Several of the fields in the web form are mandatory. They are market with a red asterisk (*). If information is missing in a mandatory field a message will show telling what field it is.
