The publications made by JAMK staff are reported to the Ministry of Education and Culture annually, as are other performances related to the performance management of institutes of higher education. The JAMK publications register is maintained by the Library.

Which publications are reported?

Publication data collection concerns scientific, professional and popular articles, books and conference publications. Audiovisual material and ICT applications as well as artistic activities meeting the data collection criteria are reported, too. 

The publications reported for data collection must meet the following general criteria:

  • The author is connected to JAMK and this affiliation is cited in the publication
  • The publication is based on the author’s research or work as an expert at JAMK.
  • The publication is publicly available to anyone, either free or subject to a charge.
  • The publication channel must have, independent of the author, an editorial board or a publisher who makes decisions on publications published on the channel.
  • The publication has not been previously published in a format which can be reported on in the data collection system.

More detailed descriptions of different types of publications are available in the PDF document "Publication data collection instructions for researchers 2019" (see the link "Ministry's Instructions" below).

Detailed instructions

The abstracts or extended abstracts of conference presentations or posters are not taken into account in the data collection, only full paper articles will be accepted.

Blog posts that produce new data related to expert work carried out at JAMK will be taken into account in the data collection and should be reported provided that the blogging platform has a publisher that is independent of the author and has an editorial staff that has more than one person. The editorial staff, author and the publication date of the blog post must be stated on the site.
