29 Delimitation of publication data by definition Definition A scientific or scholarly publication must: 1.present new insight 2.in a form that allows the research findings to be verified and/or used in new research activity 3.in a language and with a distribution that makes the publication accessible for a relevant audience 4.in a publication channel with peer review*) *) In addition: Publication channels with authors coming mainly from only one institution are not included.

30 Three main publication types Channel Type E.g. scientific article in Nature or scholarly ISBN- title on Oxford University Press. 1) Article in ISSN-title 2) Article in ISBN-title 3) ISBN-title
