Here you can read more about the different roles and steps in the management of the digital ISP. Instructional texts are built into the system and the intention is that the system should not require extra educational efforts to be used.
Several different roles are involved in the managment of the ISP in the ISP portal such as the doctoral student, main supervisor and director of studies. You ou can read more about the tasks of the different roles under the expandable menus below.
The document above contains information on:

- How to create an ISP for a doctoral student who is already admitted to doctoral studies at SLU.
It is the responsibility of the principal supervisor to plan the doctoral student´s education. A preliminary ISP is created by the principal supervisor before admission to the doctoral student and the preliminary ISP is used by the department and faculty prior to the decision on admission of the doctoral student.
After admission the doctoral student can read and make changes in his/her own ISP. A doctoral student only has access to his/her ISP.
The head of department has the overall responsibility for the doctoral education at the department. Before each application for admission of a new doctoral student to the faculty, the head of department evalutes the preliminary ISP. In addition, it is the head of department who approves of the annual update of the ISP. This is done through digital approval in Public360.
Assistant supervisors usually only have reading qualifications for the ISP that belongs to the doctoral student in question.
Each department has a director of studies for doctoral education (or a contact person with the corresponding function). In the standard flow in the ISP portal, the ISP first goes to this person for evaluation before the head of department must review and approve, but the head of department can also choose to handle the review on his or her own depending on the division of responsibilities at the department.
The department's director of studies / contact person has reading access to the ISPs that belong to the department's doctoral students.
Each faculty has one or two directors of studies for doctoral education. Through the ISP portal, these have an overview of all the faculty's ISPs. They also have the task of reviewing all preliminary ISPs before the faculty's decision on the admission of new doctoral students.
Each faculty has at least one administrative officer for doctoral education. They fill in the date for admission and SLU ID after the faculty has decided on the admission of a new doctoral student.
They will also have an overview of all the faculty's ISPs.
