General requirements for the scripts

A clear purpose, plain language, good structure and correct use of sources are minimum requirements for reports and other texts that are to be published in the Skriftserien.


The purpose of the text must be clearly stated whether it is documentation of activities, presentation of research results or research work, material for teaching, etc.


We accept manuscripts written in Norwegian and English. The language of the text must be clear-cut and sober, and in line with the Norwegian rules of language. The Language Council of Norway have good web pages with rules and advice ( The editorial board of the Skriftserien do not have the capacity for proofreading.


The structure of non-fiction texts varies from field of study to field of study, and genre to genre. Common elements are introduction, literature review or presentation of related work, theory, methodology, discussion and conclusions. The structure of the individual parts and the whole text must be applicable. Articles and reports within particularly the natural sciences and health sciences often follow the IMRaD-structure: Introduction, Method, Results and Discussion.


All sources used in the text must be accounted for, both at the appropriate location in the text and in the reference list. One reference style (such as APA or Vancouver) must be used consistently. See the University Library's website ( for links to examples and guidance for the use of different reference styles. Using a reference management system, such as EndNote, can be helpful.
