Final reporting on programmes takes place in two reports and a conference.

Final reporting for Programmes is done through a financial and a scientific report, as well as through a conference, where the programme publication which reports on the main results, is presented.

The purpose of the conference and publication is to summarise the results of the programme and to present them to researchers and the general public. The publication is published in a series paid for by RJ and is to be in Swedish. At the concluding conference, the publication is to be available to the participants.

In addition, a normal financial and scientific final report of the programme is to be submitted. This is to be completed no later than the date specified in the contract. The report is submitted by the research director through RJ’s website.

To submit the final report, log in using the research doirector’s username (e-mail address) and password. Fill in the requested information and complete the submission process by clicking ‘Skicka in’ (‘Submit’).

Send RJ one printed copy of both the financial and the scientific final reports, signed by the research director and the grant manager. The research director must have submitted the final reports of any previous programmes and projects before applying for new programmes.

The financial final report is completed by the research director in a specific field in the web form. The web form also allows you to leave a comment on the financial final report. 

The scientific final report is to very briefly present the results of the programme and end with a list of all publications from the programme. Send RJ a copy of all monographs and anthologies generated by the programme. 

The easiest approach is to write and complete the scientific report and the publication list using Word and then paste them into the relevant webpages. The report is to be written in Swedish and English. Note that the system can only handle simple text formatting. Do not use italics, header formatting, symbols, formula symbols, images or tables.

The scientific final report will be posted in full on RJ’s website. The final report is to have no fewer than 10,000 and no more than 15,000 characters per language (including spaces, excluding the publication list) and be a coherent text.

The following items are to be reported:

  • Purpose of the programme and how it has developed during the project period.
  • A short description of how it was implemented.
  • The programme’s most important results, contributions to the research front and a discussion about this.
  • New research questions generated through the programme.
  • The programme’s international dimensions, such as contacts and material.
  • How the researchers have disseminated the results to other researchers and groups outside the scientific community and discuss and explain how collaboration has taken place.
  • Publication list and links to own websites. Please use headings to make it more easy-to-understand (e.g. monographs; articles; textbooks; webpages including Wikipedia; debate; popularisations). Mark what has been published with OA. (Note that researchers receiving RJ grants from the 2010 application round must publish their peer-reviewed writings in journals and conference publications through open access, so that they become freely available online. As such, indicate how open access has been ensured.)
