Register Manuscript (publication with the status Manuscript, Submitted or Accepted)

Before you start register...

First check in DiVA if the manuscript is already registered by searching for the manuscript. Do not register a manuscript already published in DiVA!

Normally articles with the status Submitted, Manuscript and Accepted should not be registered since they have no value for bibliometric evaluation. An exception from this rule are articles included in a Licentiate or a Ph.D. Theses. Since all publications with the status Submitted, Manuscript or Accepted also are linked from the Licentiate and Ph.D. Theses and back, they have to be register.

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 messages will show telling what field it is.
