General meeting at faculty attended

Today I attended a general meeting at the University of Stavanger´s Faculty of Social Sciences, on the ongoing reorganization process.

Preliminary results for 2016 publication points (CRIStin)

Preliminary reporting to Current Research Information System in Norway (CRIStin) shows that I currently stand with an estimated 2,4 publication points with the old system, and 3,5 publication points with the new system.

At University of Stavanger´s Department of social studies, this means that for now I appear to be 2nd most-publishing scholar according to the old system, and 2rd most-publishing (along with another scholar - so, top 3) according to the new system.

There are still two or three articles/chapters I have to report, but I am not sure whether they will be counted as 2016 or 2017 publications.
