DiVA is Uppsala University's digital publishing system for publications and research data produced by the University's researchers and students. Publication data from DiVA is used as a basis for bibliometric analyses, evaluations and funding allocation, among other purposes.

On this page students, researchers or administrators at Uppsala University can find information about registration, publication and administration in DiVA.

Researchers at Uppsala University can register and make publications freely available in DiVA. Information from DiVA can be shown in publication lists on websites and be shared with other databases and search services.

It is mandatory to register information about all publications you produce at Uppsala University, even in cases where it is not possible to attach the publication as full text.

Always start by searching DiVA for the publication you want to register. This is to check if the publication has already been registered. If the record is already in DiVA, you can modify or add information to the existing record. However, if there is an attached file, only an administrator can modify the record.
