Required affiliation details

Add affiliation details to your publication

To be able to recognize publications - articles, e-books, chapters, conference papers etc. - for bibliographic analysis, the address field of all UMCG scientific publications must contain the following string:

University of Groningen, University Medical Center Groningen, Department  …., The Netherlands

This also counts for publications on which the UMCG has participated with a corresponding author outside the UMCG or the University Groningen. The addition of departmental details is recommended. The order is very important for the ranking of the university and the UMCG!
