I don´t have the possibility to switch role when I try to log in to the ISP portal?

You have probably not been assigned the correct role. Please contact ISP@slu.se and tell us what kind of role you need, for example supervisor or doctoral student, and we will fix the problem. 

Forwarding an ISP in the system

When you are going to approve an ISP and send it forward in the system, it is important to know that this is done in two steps. First, press the "Save and send" button, which will make a list with a few different options appear. N.B.! The default option (grayed out) only means that the ISP is saved, it will not be forwarded. You must therefore actively select one of the other options - and then press "Save" to forward the ISP. How to forward an ISP - instruction with pictures.

How can a prospective doctoral student get access to the ISP portal?

All users of the ISP portal must have a SLU AD account. This is created at the department by the person who is responsible for the catalog ("katalogansvarig"). When the prospective student is added in AD, he or she can be added as a supervisor in the ISP portal.

I end up in SLUPub when I try to enter the ISP portal?

Both the ISP and SLUpub resides in the same system, and depending on which role you choose you will be able to do different things (Researcher = Publication maintainance, the ISP roles will let you edit ISPs).

How can we add an external assistant supervisor?
