Before you submit
Search DiVA before you submit!
If you have written a publication with co-authors, chances are that one of your co-authors has already registered your publication.
If you search DiVA for your publication before you submit, you minimize the risk of doing unnecessary work entering a duplicate record.
If you import the record, the system might give you a heads up that this is a duplicate record – but not always. It depends on the quality of data in the existing record.
