How do I sign into Cristin?

My researcher profile
Researcher profiles contain information about the researcher, background, contact information, tags, CV, awards and research cooperations. The profile is a key point in Cristin that allows you to navigate to a researcher's records in other modules in the system. From the profile we can see what a researcher has published, and which projects and research institutions he/she is linked to. See also Cristin user guide.
Cristin - Projects
The project module contains information on projects which one or more Cristin institutions are involved in. In this module you can register your own projects.
The project module provides an overview of the topics that are researched in Norway and contains an overview of research related to the project, the project topic, the institution responsible for the project, and subsequent research the project has contributed to. The Research Council and others who fund research, will get all the information and updates on projects from Cristin.
Publication points are calculated by multiplying the author´s share by different values for the level and form of publication. The individual institution's publication points are calculated by adding up all the weighted author shares. The categories that count as publication points are monographs (scientific books), scientific articles in anthologies and articles in scientific journals and series. This system provides the following points per publication:
|Category||Level 1||Level 2|
|Monograph (ISBN / ISSN)||5||8|
|Article in anthology (ISBN)||0.7||1|
|Articles in journals and series (ISSN)||1||3|
Author share: Each author is credited for "their" share of the publication.
Remember that your affiliation to Hedmark University of Applied Sciences (HUAS) has to be provided in the publication! In some cases, an author credits several institutions in one publication, and the publication points are then divided between these institutions. Clarify this in advance with your immediate superior.
