Malfunction in Linking University Evaluation Database and the Institutional Repository(SWAN) and the Library’s Response


A malfunction in linking the University Evaluation Database (Evaluation DB) and SWAN has caused papers to be published on SWAN to not have been made public yet. We sincerely apologize for any trouble this may have caused.

Our response is as follows:

(1) Your achievements before AY2018 will be registered and published on SWAN sequentially by the end of AY2020. The university library will request faculty and staff to provide data copies of your papers.

(2) Your achievements after AY2019 will be registered and published on SWAN after the library imports the list of achievements from the Evaluation DB in October each year. The university library will request faculty and staff to provide data copies of your papers.

(3) We are considering modifying the linking function between SWAN and the Evaluation DB.
