Unisciences and Webmapping of FGSE expertises

| Log in to Unisciences | Add keywords

The new Webmapping of FGSE expertises aims to improve the visibility of research. Intended for all audiences, this tool highlights the specificity of researchers, but also their integration in the institute or faculty.

On 27 October 2021, the "Chercheuses·eurs et thèmes de recherche" site is deactivated and the keywords present on this site are moderated and transferred to Unisciences. From this date onwards, you can manage your keywords by connecting to your personal Unisciences page.

You can pick your keywords from the available thesauri (originated from national or international organisations) or propose new ones, via the moderation. The keywords, in French and English, are divided into four distinct categories (Themes, Methods/Approaches, Locations, SDG: sustainable development goals).

Good practice in choosing keywords

• Limit the total number of keywords to 12 (all categories combined).

• Enter at least one keyword in each category, if possible (Themes, Methods/Approaches, Locations, SDG: sustainable development goals).

• Do not use too generic (too broad) keywords (for example, prefer "Molecular Biology" to "Biology"; and "Structural Geology" to "Geology").

• Limit the number of highly specialised keywords. The aim is to highlight the links between people, groups and themes. Balance the keywords linking researchers with one or two more specific keywords.

• Do not hesitate to consult the Webmapping of FGSE expertises to see the keywords chosen by colleagues.

• Before proposing a new keyword, use the smart search to check that the term does not already exist in a similar form.

You will find Add.png button in the edit mode of Unisciences, immediately under the list of keywords.
