RJ Programmes


Final reporting of RJ Programmes is to occur no later than the date specified in the contract.

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

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 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.

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 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 and a discussion about this.
  • New research questions generated through the programme.
  • 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.)

Programme publications

  • RJ is responsible for printing costs and production but not for the working hours of the writer.
  • The text is to consist of a cohesive text written in Swedish.
  • It is to total no more than 150,000–200,000 characters, including spaces and annexes.
  • It is to focus on the programme's primary results, and the project leader is encouraged to explain the conclusions of the research and what lessons can be drawn.
  • The text is aimed at a wider audience than researchers within the field/fields of study, which means that central concepts and similar must be explained.
  • The manuscript is to be sent to the responsible research officer. It will then be edited by an external editor contracted by RJ. The external editor is responsible for regular contact with the project leader about the text and the printing process with RJ's contracted publisher.
  • Allow 4 months from submission of the manuscript to the completed publication.
  • The publication series can be downloaded from RJ's website, but a number of printed copies will also be sent to the project leader.
  • If the programme chooses to arrange a public event to communicate its results, the publication is to be printed and available for handout in connection with this event.

Option of presenting the programme's results to a wider audience

  • RJ offers extra funding for programmes to present their results and programme publication through public events.
  • The researchers should contact their higher education institution's communications department when planning and conducting such an event.
  • RJ will cover the event's direct costs (within reasonable limits) but not salary costs or remunerations. Funds can be applied for by contacting the responsible research officer within one year of the programme's final report.
  • There is no predefined format, but it is to be conducted in Swedish. Examples include panel discussions, public lectures and conferences with a wide range of invited participants.
  • The purpose is for others beyond the involved researchers in the field to learn about the results of the research. This can include decision-makers, practitioners, journalists, interested members of the public, or researchers in other fields.
  • RJ will advertise the event through its own communication channels and inform journalists and the media. Submit information about the event to the responsible research manager.
