Get your Cristin registrations done!

The deadline for registering your publications in Cristin is 31 January. Sign up to this researhcer breakfast to get a head start.

At this webinar we will give a presentation on the Norwegian research information system and the Cristin database. The most pertinent requirements and what to do and how to do it will be presented. After the introduction we will help you get your registrations done, well in advance of the deadline of January 31st. 

Presented by: The Cristin team at the University Library

Time: 6th January 9.00 - 10.00 a.m.

Place: Zoom

Becoming more unique with ORCiD

ORCiD ID is a unique researcher ID that connects all your publications across journals, publishers and publishing platforms. This makes it easier for others to find and read your articles, even if you should change jobs, your name, or move abroad.

You can use you ORCiD record to present your publications, CV and more, if you want to. Cristin, the national current research information system, will soon require authors to enter their ORCiD when registering publications, so that’s another good reason for getting your own ORCiD now. 

Sign up to get your ORCiD ID. ORCiD is a non-profit organisation supported by publishers, universities and funding organisations all over the world.

We will show you how to import your publications to your ORCiD record, which is more efficient than adding them manually. Many academic research databases use ORCiD. These databases can calculate your H-index. Having an ORCiD ID ensures that only your works, and all your works, are included in the calculation. All citations will be registered correctly to your author profile, giving you the credit you deserve, even if publishers spell your name differently (Husøy, Husoy, Husoey). We will show you how this works in Scopus and Web of Science.

Date: 4. November 2021 09:00 - 10:00 | Presented by: Kari Hølland and Håkon Magne Bjerkan, the University Library

Place: University Library Ullandhaug

A Thermometer for the Little Bang

Understanding how matter behaved shortly after the Big Bang is a central goal of modern high energy physics. To this end we need to recreate the conditions of extremely high temperatures and densities present 13.7 billion years ago, which is achieved today using particle colliders, such as the large hadron collider located at the CERN laboratory (Little Bang). Alexander Rothkopf's research focuses on devising theoretical methods that allow us to understand the properties of matter inside the collision center, by simulating the dynamical evolution of so called quarkonium particles, the bound states of heavy quarks and anti-quarks. Bringing to high energy physics concepts and methods, originally devised in low-energy condensed matter physics, such as the quantum variant of Brownian motion, he is working towards establishing heavy quarkonium as thermometer in heavy-ion collisions.

Alexander Rothkopf is a member of the particle physics and cosmology group, who received the Lyse Research Prize for 2019.

Researcher Breakfast: EU’s Research and Innovation Infrastructure

What are we supporting? A look into EU’s research infrastructure.

The European Union runs some of the planet’s largest research and innovation programmes. Successful participation in these programmes is prestigious and promising in terms of funding. Beyond individual programmes and calls, knowledge about EU’s involvement in the field of science is however limited. To help closing the gap, this presentation aims at providing information on EU’s Research and Innovation (R&I) infrastructure.

The aim is to shed light on what is behind EU’s involvement in the field of science, and to develop an understanding of the drives behind its expansion. This includes a presentation of key documents that relate to EU’s R&I activities and individual policies. Finally, the presentation will attempt to map EU’s research infrastructure.

Date: 2. September 09:15 - 10:00 | Sign up to the webinar here | Presented by: Thomas M. Sattich, Associate Professor at the Department of Media and Social Sciences and EU positioning coordinator at UiS.
