Bibliographies - FAQ

Personal Bibliographies

  • How to fill in or modify data for personal bibliographies? Answer

    The software available on the Bibliographies website enables the display of personal bibliographies for researchers and professionals on the basis of the researcher's code given to authors at the entry into the official records of researchers within the Serbian Research Information System (E-CRIS.SR), if their bibliographic items are included in the COBISS.SR system. The bibliographic data is downloaded from the shared COBIB.SR database. An item from the COBIB.SR database can only be added to the personal bibliography correctly, if it contains the basic bibliographic data (author, title, year of publication, publisher, etc.), the corresponding code from the typology of documents/works, the researcher's code and some other data.

    The data is entered to the shared bibliographic database by libraries that participate in the COBISS.SR system as full members and have qualified cataloguers.

    As a general rule you can decide which library will update and edit your personal bibliography. For researchers, this is usually the library at your institution of employment. If your institution does not have a library, you should find a library that specialises in your subjects. Pay them a visit and they will provide you with detailed instructions for updating your bibliography.

Bibliographies of Serials
