What is Prisma? A joint e-service for VR, Formas and Forte for handling applications, the review process and reporting. A new system but the same old funders Launched October 1 st 2014. All new applications and tasks for these three research councils will go through Prisma.* * Formas has informed that they will not use Prisma for calls during the Spring 2015. https://prisma.research.se/ (available in Swedish and English)
Why Prisma? Creates a shared infrastructure for information. For researchers it enables a system to enter information once, reuse often. An all electronic system – no papers needed. Simplifies for the research funders to compile information. Provides the universities with an overview of all applications
How does Prisma affect KTH? All tasks (application, the review process, signing and reporting) will be performed in Prisma = All persons involved in these tasks will use the system. A personal account is required for all users. Researchers need to register their CV and publications. Fellow applicants are also required to create a personal account and add their CV information and publications to the application in Prisma. Not for VR’s General Call. The applicant will upload all information (CV and publications) for the fellow applicants. KTH (Research Office) has a responsibility for an organisation account for administrating structures, tasks and administrative users. Your school/department do not need to create an organisation account.

Important when registering in DiVA Avoid duplicate records Search DiVA (kth.diva-portal.org ) before registering a new record. KTH-id KTH-id must be registered in the field “Local User ID” in DiVA (KTH-id is a unique eight character id, for example u1r4nbk6, that all employees have and that can be found on each employee’s profile page. KTH-id should be registered for all KTH-affiliated authors of a publication. This is regardless of whether the publication has been produced during the period the author has been employed at KTH or not. ORCID iD
Important when registering in DiVA Organisational affiliation Register organisational affiliation, i.e. the correct school, department, centre etc., for all authors that were affiliated with KTH at the time the publication was produced. The organisation registered should correspond to the author’s affiliation at the time when the publication was produced. An author can register several affiliations for the same publication, e.g. both a department and a centre. If a centre is registered it should be supplemented with the department where the researcher is employed. Peer review Register if the publication is peer reviewed or not. The following rules apply: Peer review refers to the review of a complete, published text. The fact that a journal applies peer review does not automatically imply that all publications in the journal should be regarded as peer reviewed. Peer review of a book or a part of an anthology means that the review has been carried out by independent reviewers, not by the editors of the book alone.
