    Effekter av valsystem: En studie av 80 stater2002Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Valsystemet har stora effekter De senaste årtiondena har präglats av stora politiska förändringar på många håll i världen. De nya demokratierna har aktualiserat debatten kring de politiska institutionernas roll i allmänhet och deras betydelse för demokratins konsolidering i synnerhet. I Effekter av valsystem. En studie av 80 stater (SNS Förlag) kartlägger författaren Carsten Anckar huvuddragen i valsystemen i den demokratiska världen genom att jämföra 80 olika stater. Den centrala frågan är vilken betydelse som olika valsystem har för tre centrala element i politiken: representationens proportionalitet, fragmentering av partisystemet samt regeringsstabilitet. Vid en första anblick verkar Sverige ha ett optimalt valsystem. Graden av representativitet är extremt hög. Partisystemet är tillräckligt fragmenterat för att garantera att de viktigaste åsiktsinriktningarna är representerade, men inte så fragmenterat att det frambringar täta regeringsskiften. Denna bild är emellertid en schimär. Undersökningen leder för Sveriges vidkommande till tre slutsatser: Sverige har en mycket låg grad av disproportionalitet beroende på utjämningsmandaten. Graden av fragmentering av partisystemet ligger nära medelvärdet för länder med proportionella valsystem. En ändring av rösttröskeln eller en radikal ändring av valkretsstorleken skulle troligtvis ändra partisystemets struktur. Graden av regeringsstabilitet är hög i Sverige.

    Profilering som datakälla för bedömning av seriemördares rationella val2014Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 5 credits / 7,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Objective: In the United States there is about 30-40 active serial killers, at all times. To help the police with the investigation of the crimes of a serial killer there is a method called profiling. The purpose of this study was to find out what kind of information that could be retrieved from profiling. The second aim of this study was to apply the rational choice theory to that information in order to determine whether serial killers make rational choices. Method: A systematic search with inclusion- and exclusion criteria was conducted in PsychInfo and SAGE Premier and resulted in eight articles; all of them based on retrospective data. The articles were examined, e.g. based on their ethics, definition of serial killers, together with information sources, and were found to be of moderate to high quality. Results: Serial killers have some element of organisation to their killings, the victims are often female and the bodies of the victims are often found within 10 km of the offenders' residence. Some of the articles lacked an appropriate definition of the term serial killer that might include other types of murderers, therefore generalization of this study demands precaution. Conclusion: The information's retrieved in this study support that serial killers make rational choices regarding choice of victim, location and modus operandi. However, profiling as a method today lacks validity, hence further research to establish the validity is suggested.

    Begreppet brottsoffer: Är teorin om det ideala offret applicerbart inom rättsväsendet?2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Bakgrund: Begreppet brottsoffer har funnits sedan 1970-talet, men har påvisats problematiskt att definiera. Enligt Christie (1986) teori om det ideala offret tillsammans med Strobls (2004) tilläggskriterier ska en person som utsätts för brott uppfylla kriterier för att uppnå legitim offerstatus i samhället. Dessa är svagt offer, respektabel aktivitet, respektabel plats, gärningsperson i överläge, gärningsperson okänd, hävda offerstatus, provokation och samverkan med rättsväsendet. Syftet var att beskriva och redogöra för hur anställda inom Polismyndigheten uppfattade begreppet brottsoffer och om personer som utsatts för brott skulle accepteras som brottsoffer inom rättsväsendet, med utgångspunkt i Christies (1986) teori om det ideala offret. Metod: Anställda inom Polismyndigheten (N=111) besvarade en webbenkät med scenarier. Data analyserades med Mann-Whitney U, deduktiv- och induktiv innehållsanalys. Resultat: Signifikanta skillnader angående respektabel aktivitet och provokation, där kvinnor i lägre utsträckning än männen ansåg att personerna som utsattes för brott accepterades som brottsoffer inom rättsväsendet. En person borde utföra en respektabel aktivitet, befinna sig på en respektabel plats och inte provocera gärningspersonen för att lättare accepteras som brottsoffer. Fem kategorier identifierades utöver teorin där två påverkade i vilken utsträckning en person accepteras som brottsoffer inom rättsväsendet, men de flesta personerna som utsatts för brott i scenarierna skulle accepteras i hög utsträckning. Diskussion: Christies teori om det ideala offret ansågs delvis vara applicerbar inom rättsväsendet men skulle behöva kompletteras med de nya kategorierna om teorin ska appliceras inom rättsväsendet. Begreppet brottsoffer bör ses över för att personer som utsatts för brott lättare ska kunna få sina rättigheter och behov uppfyllda.

    Att gå över gränsen: Om kristna församlingars inställning till interreligiöst samarbete i det sociala arbetet. 2009Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Ekumenik, dvs. kyrkliga enhetssträvanden, är en väletablerad företeelse inom kristna kretsar i Sverige. Religionsmöten relateras ofta till konfliktsituationer, men religionsdialog har också uppmärksammats som ett sätt att främja samexistens och öka förståelsen mellan olika religiösa grupper. Omtanke, medlidande och välgörenhet har en central plats inom alla världsreligionerna. Kan då det sociala arbetet vara en arena för religionsöverskridande samarbete? I studien fokuseras lokala kristna församlingars inställning till interreligiöst samarbete kring socialt arbete. Studien bygger på kvalitativa intervjuer med rep-resentanter från Svenska kyrkan, Katolska kyrkan, Pingstkyrkan och Frälsningsarmén. Resultatet pekar på skillnader mellan å ena sidan Svenska kyrkan och Katolska kyrkan och å andra sidan Pingstkyrkan och Frälsningsarmén. De förstnämnda har en positivare inställning till samarbete över religionsgränser och ett mångreligiöst samhälle. Fri-kyrkorna har en mer reserverad hållning till ett religionsöverskridande samarbete och tenderar att fokusera mer på svårigheter än på möjligheter i interreligiös samverkan. Det framkommer även att inriktningen på församlingarnas sociala arbete påverkas mycket av personliga initiativ och möjligheten till interreligiöst samarbete är följaktligen beroende av enskilda personers intresse i frågan.

    Sex Pheromone of the Introduced Pine Sawfly, Diprion similis (Diprionidae), Revisited: No Activity of Earlier Reported SynergistsManuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Extracts of Diprion similis females were found to contain about 15 ng of the sex pheromone precursor 3,7-dimethylpentadecan-2-ol per female. When analysing the extracts after derivatisation with (2S)-2-acetoxypropionyl chloride, we found that the major stereoisomer in the extract was (2S,3R,7R)-3,7-dimethylpentadecan-2-ol. Also other stereoisomers of 3,7-dimethylpentadecan-2-ol were identified in the extract namely, 1% of (2R,3S,7S) , 0.3% (2R,3R,7R) and 0.4% of (2R,3R,7S). An unknown fifth substance showed an identical spectrum to 3,7-dimethylpentadecan-2-ol, both in SIM and full scan mode. In field tests in Ontario, Canada, the earlier identified main pheromone component, viz. the propanoate of (2S,3R,7R)-3,7-dimethylpentadecan-2-ol, was tested alone and in combination with other stereoisomers, earlier reported to be synergistic. In none of the tests were any synergistic effects detected and the threo four-isomer blend was as attractive as the pure main compound. Thus, one of the few examples of a diprionid sawfly using more than one substance in its sex pheromone could not be confirmed. The results also suggest that monitoring programs can use the more easily synthesized threo-blend without losing efficiency.

    Field Response of Male Pine Sawflies, Neodiprion sertifer (Diprionidae), to Sex Pheromone Analogs in Japan and Sweden2010In: Journal of Chemical Ecology, ISSN 0098-0331, E-ISSN 1573-1561, Vol. 36, no 9, p. 969-977Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The pine sawfly Neodiprion sertifer (Geoffroy) uses the acetate or propionate of (2S,3S,7S)-3,7-dimethyl-2-pentadecanol (diprionol) as pheromone components, with the (2S,3R,7R)-isomer being antagonistic, synergistic, or inactive according to the population tested. In this study, we tested the attraction of males to the acetates of three analogs of diprionol, each missing one methyl group, viz. (2S,7S)-7-methyl-2-pentadecanol, (2S,6S)-2,6-dimethyl-1-tetradecanol, and (2S,3S)-3-methyl-2-pentadecanol. None of the analogs alone, or in combination with diprionol acetate, was attractive in Sweden, even at 100 times the amount of diprionol acetate attractive to N. sertifer. In Japan, the acetate of (2S,3S)-3-methyl-2-pentadecanol attracted males when tested in amounts 10–20 times higher than the acetate pheromone component. The acetate esters of the (2S,3R)-analog and the (2S,3R,7R)-isomer of diprionol also were tested in combination with the pheromone compound (acetate ester). Both compounds caused an almost total trap-catch reduction in Sweden, whereas in Japan they appear to have relatively little effect on trap capture when added to diprionol acetate. Butyrate and iso-butyrate esters of diprionol were unattractive to N. sertifer in Sweden. In summary, there exists geographic variation in N. sertifer in responses to both diprionyl acetate and some of its analogs.

    Release of sex pheromone and its precursors in the pine sawfly Diprion pini (Hym., Diprionidae)2005In: Chemoecology, ISSN 0937-7409, E-ISSN 1423-0445, Vol. 15, no 3, p. 147-151Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The first identification of a sex pheromone of a pine sawfly (Hymenoptera, Diprionidae) dates back almost thirty years. Since then, female-produced pheromones of over twenty diprionid species have been investigated by solvent extraction followed by separation and identification. However, no study has shown what the females actually release. Collection of airborne compounds using absorbtion on charcoal filter as well as solid phase microextraction (SPME) followed by analysis employing gas chromatography combined with mass spectrometry (GC-MS), revealed an unusual system in Diprion pini, in which the pheromone precursor alcohol, 3,7-dimethyl-2-tridecanol, is released together with acetic, propionic, butyric and isobutyric acids. The corresponding acetate, propionate and butyrate esters of 3,7-dimethyl-2-tridecanol were also found in the samples. All esters were electrophysiologically active, and the propionate and isobutyrate were attractive in trapping experiments. Based on these and earlier reported results, it seems that at least in part of its range, the pheromone response of D. pini is not very specific with regard to the functional group, as long as this is an ester.

    Fear of hypoglycaemia in adults with Type 1 diabetes2010In: Diabetic Medicine, ISSN 0742-3071, E-ISSN 1464-5491, Vol. 27, no 28, p. 1151-1158Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aims The aim of this studywas toexamine the fearof hypoglycaemiaand its association with demographic anddisease-specificvariables in a large and unselective population of adult patients with Type 1 diabetes.

    Methods Questionnaires were sent by post to all patients with Type 1 diabetes who were identified in the local diabetesregistries of two hospitals in Stockholm, Sweden (n = 1387). Fear of hypoglycaemia was measured using the SwedishHypoglycaemia Fear Survey, theWorry subscale and theAloneness subscale.Demographic variables and disease-specific factorswere collected from patients’ self reports and medical records. Univariate analysis and multiple stepwise linear regressionanalysis were used in the statistical analyses of the data.

    Results Seven hundred and sixty-four (55%) patients participated in the study (mean age 43.3 years andmeanHbA1c 7.0%,normal < 5.0%). The Hypoglycaemia Fear Survey - Worry subscale was significantly associated with frequency of severehypoglycaemia, number of symptoms during mild hypoglycaemia, gender, hypoglycaemic symptoms during hyperglycaemiaand hypoglycaemic unawareness. The Hypoglycaemia Fear Survey - Aloneness subscale was significantly associated withfrequency of severe hypoglycaemia, number of symptoms during mild hypoglycaemia, gender, frequency of mildhypoglycaemia, HbA1c, hypoglycaemic unawareness and visits to the emergency room because of severe hypoglycaemia. Fear of hypoglycaemia proved to be more prevalent in females and indicated a different pattern between genders in relation tofactors associated with fear of hypoglycaemia.

    Conclusions This study identifies the frequency of severe hypoglycaemia as themost important factor associated with fear ofhypoglycaemia. Moreover, for the first time,we document gender differences in fear of hypoglycaemia, suggesting that femalesare more affected by fear of hypoglycaemia than men.

    Fear of hypoglycemia: relationship to hypoglycemic risk and psychological factors2015In: Acta Diabetologica, ISSN 0940-5429, E-ISSN 1432-5233, Vol. 52, no 3, p. 581-589Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The major aims of this study were to examine (1) the association between fear of hypoglycemia (FOH) in adults with type 1 diabetes with demographic, psychological (anxiety and depression), and disease-specific clinical factors (hypoglycemia history and unawareness, A(1c)), including severe hypoglycemia (SH), and (2) differences in patient subgroups categorized by level of FOH and risk of SH. Questionnaires were mailed to 764 patients with type 1 diabetes including the Swedish translation of the Hypoglycemia Fear Survey (HFS) and other psychological measures including the Perceived Stress Scale, Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale, Anxiety Sensitivity Index, Social Phobia Scale, and Fear of Complications Scale. A questionnaire to assess hypoglycemia history was also included and A(1c) measures were obtained from medical records. Statistical analyses included univariate approaches, multiple stepwise linear regressions, Chi-square t tests, and ANOVAs. Regressions showed that several clinical factors (SH history, frequency of nocturnal hypoglycemia, self-monitoring) were significantly associated with FOH but R (2) increased from 16.25 to 39.2 % when anxiety measures were added to the model. When patients were categorized by level of FOH (low, high) and SH risk (low, high), subgroups showed significant differences in non-diabetes-related anxiety, hypoglycemia history, self-monitoring, and glycemic control. There is a strong link between FOH and non-diabetes-related anxiety, as well as hypoglycemia history. Comparison of patient subgroups categorized according to level of FOH and SH risk demonstrated the complexity of FOH and identified important differences in psychological and clinical variables, which have implications for clinical interventions.

    Oscillating Bubble SHG on Surface Elastic and Surface Viscoelastic Systems: New Insights in the Dynamics of Adsorption Layers2006In: Journal of Physical Chemistry B, ISSN 1520-6106, E-ISSN 1520-5207, Vol. 110, no 37, p. 18466-18472Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Surface rheology governs a great variety of interfacial phenomena such as foams or emulsions and plays a dominant role in several technological processes such as high-speed coating. Its major difference with bulk rheology resides in the high compressibility of the surface phase, which is the direct consequence of the molecular exchange between adsorbed and dissolved species. In analogy to bulk rheology, a complex surface dilational modulus, ε, which captures surface tension changes upon defined area changes of the surface layer, can be defined. The module ε is complex, and the molecular interpretation of the dissipative process that gives rise to the imaginary part of the module is subject to some controversy. In this contribution, we used the oscillating bubble technique to study the surface dilational modulus in the mid-frequency range. The dynamic state of the surface layer was monitored by a pressure sensor and by surface second-harmonic generation (SHG). The pressure sensor measures the real and imaginary part of the modulus while SHG monitors independently the surface composition under dynamic conditions. The experiment allows the assessment of the contribution of the compositional term to the surface dilational modulus ε. Two aqueous surfactant solutions have been characterized:  a surface elastic and a surface viscoelastic solution. The elastic surface layer can be described within the framework of the extended Lucassen−van den Tempel Hansen model. The change in surface concentration is in phase with the relative area change of the surface layer, which is in strong contrast with the results obtained from the surface viscoelastic solution. Here, surface tension, area change, and surface composition are phase-shifted, providing evidence for a nonequilibrium state within the surface phase. The data are used to assess existing surface rheology models.

    Patient participation in the clinical pathway: Nurses' perceptions of adults' involvement in haemodialysis2019In: Nursing Open, E-ISSN 2054-1058, Vol. 6, no 2, p. 574-582Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: To develop knowledge of nurses' perceptions of participation for patients treated with haemodialysis and their next of kin.

    Design: A qualitative study with a hermeneutic approach.

    Methods: The data were collected in 2015 through focus groups with 13 nurses in Central Norway.

    Results: The nurses reported that patient participation ranging from non-involvement to shared decision-making was related to whether dialysis was initiated as acute or scheduled. The restrictions required in chronic haemodialysis limited participation. The next of kin were not involved. The nurses highlighted interventions on both the individual and system levels to strengthen participation.

    Conclusion: Dialysis units should develop strategies for participation related to individual needs and design treatment in cooperation with patients and their families, ensuring involvement early in the clinical pathway. Further research is needed on issues related to next of kin, including their desired level of involvement.

    “Vi leker kunskap”: Lek som verktyg för lärande genom ett pedagogperspektiv2018Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med studien var att undersöka verksamma förskollärares erfarenheter av att arbeta med leksom verktyg för lärande. Detta undersökte vi genom kvalitativa intervjuer av semistruktureradkaraktär med sex stycken förskollärare. I analysen av vår data framkom det två teman: Hur lek somverktyg skapar förutsättningar till lärande och Pedagogens betydelse i leken för barns lärande.Resultatet har visat att det finns ett samstämmigt synsätt på lek som verktyg för lärande. Det har ävenframkommit att leken anses vara något lustfyllt och viktig för barns lärande. Men även attpedagogernas eget synsätt på leken är av stor betydelse för huruvida leken kan användas somverktyg för lärande. Pedagogernas erfarenheter beskriver ett tydligt samband mellan lek och lärandedär de menar att dessa hör ihop, och dem är samstämmiga att deras egen roll har en stor betydelse förhur och när ett lärande sker genom leken. I resultatet framkommer även att pedagogen har ett ansvaratt ge både tid och material för lek så att leken kan användas som verktyg för lärande.

    Abstract [en]

    The Information Systems research group at Mid Sweden University is the result of four separate groups, spread across three disciplines, artificially thrown together because we didn’t seem to fit into other developed research groups. What we were seen to have in common was ‘information’. The disciplines are: Archives and Information Science, Business Management and Organization, and Informatics.

    Shortly after this uncertain start, the University launched a demanding internal process for Assessment of Research and Coproduction (ARC13) over the previous five years. We didn’t have that much past together, so we set out to build ourselves a future, exploring our common interests as we gathered data for the evaluation. We pooled our research, hired a facilitator to help with a SWOT analysis, built trust within the group and achieved a remarkably good report from the external assessors. Participation in the multidisciplinary InterPARES Trust in Digital Records in an Increasingly Networked World Project has been an inspiring factor in the Archives and Information Science contribution to our new collaboration. Our Information Systems research group now focuses on five research challenges: Information value, quality, accessibility, sustainability and trustworthiness.  Now we are having fun exploring the possibilities, confident that our InfoSys research group has its own sustainable future.

    Careers and education in archives and records management2010In: Encyclopedia of Library and Information Sciences / [ed] Marcia J. Bates, CRC Press, 2010, 3rd, p. 755-762Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Educators and trainers in the field of archives and records management face the challenge of providing for practitioners with a widely varying educational background while preparing them for a professional environment that has changed rapidly in recent years.  Development of research programs is also crucial to the advancement of the profession and the survival of university-based professional education in the discipline.  Competency standards for records management are discussed, including their appropriate role in training and education for practioners. Examples of education and training programs from around the world are mentioned, although the coverage in this article is not intended to be exhaustive.  The role of professional associations as providers of training and in supporting and evaluating professional education programs is also addressed. The International Council on Archives Section for Archival Educators and Trainers provides a community of practice for educators and trainers. Its objectives and recent activities are described.

     

    A wide and growing range of career choices is available to archivists and records managers. Traditional employers are national and regional archives, but there are many opportunities for specialising in aspects of the profession and the types of organisations served by the archives. Professionals with the necessary expertise required to manage digital services are in demand. Initiatives to support people of indigenous origin joining the profession and encouragement for the development of community archives are an area of growing interest.

    Education and training for records professionals2007In: Records Management Journal, ISSN 0956-5698, E-ISSN 1758-7689, Vol. 17, no 2, p. 94-106Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – This paper aims to explore the definitions of and the differences between education and training and the role of each in nurturing and supporting lifelong learning for records professionals: records managers and archivists.

     

    Design/methodology/approach – General definitions of “education”, “training”, “competence” and “competencies” have been deliberately selected as an accessible starting-point for reflection. Different models for competencies and the lack of consensus on what constitutes an appropriate competency model for the profession are considered.

     

    Findings – Education provides new professionals with knowledge of theory of the discipline and helps them to explore current practice. It provides the information-seeking skills and encourages a reflective habit that underpins independent lifelong learning. Training focuses on acquisition of specific skills and competencies necessary in the workplace. More is needed for a viable professional future; education for research is essential to the development of professional knowledge and for the survival of education programmes in universities.

     

    Practical implications – Professional associations as leaders of opinion and practice have an important role in finding the way forward. Although competency standards are more appropriate for evaluating training programmes, professional associations which have embraced competency standards have attempted to use them to evaluate education programmes, but prefer not to consider evaluating training programmes and training providers.

     

    Originality/value – This paper aims to raise awareness of the need to give appropriate weight to education, training and research to ensure that records professionals are known for high levels of competence as well as productive reflection and creative forward thinking.

    Global archive and recordkeeping research agendas: encouraging participation and getting over the hurdles2007In: Journal of The Society of Archivists, ISSN 0037-9816, E-ISSN 1465-3907, Vol. 28, no 1, p. 35-46Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The International Council on Archives Section for Archival Educators and Trainers (ICA/SAE) has had a research agenda as one of its projects for eight years, but to date there has been little contribution and no real outcomes. A research database has also been developed by ICA/SAE, with the purpose of documenting research projects of any size from dissertations to collaborative projects. It remains to encourage researchers and research students to record their projects and keep them up to date. One of the main barriers to developing strong research programmes in universities is the difficulty of developing a research culture in small programmes where academics carry heavy teaching and administrative loads. A learning community of potential researchers must be developed, as well as ways to encourage connections for future partnerships between experienced and novice researchers as well as between university-based researchers and practitioners. A few very successful collaborative research programmes have been developed and we can learn from them. These include InterPARES, the Records Continuum Research Group and the Cedars Project. They are exemplified by

    •a clear focus for their research;

    •collaboration between universities and industry partners;

    •a clear management structure and sound documentation;

    •a well-managed website for dissemination of research products.

    Implementing Enterprise Information Management: A Research- Based Approach in Two Swedish Municipalities.2010In: IQ (InfoRMAA Quarterly), ISSN 0816-200X, Vol. 26, no 2, p. 32-34Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    An implementation program for organisation-wide recordkeeping systems in two Swedish local governments is being informed by a research-based approach in cooperation with Mid Sweden University. The Sundsvall and Härnösand municipalities will provide the platform for the Research Centre’s major project for 2009-2011, which brings together experience in researching recordkeeping issues in small and medium enterprises as well as expertise in enterprise information architecture and content management. The last two provide an umbrella for document, records and archives management, web content management and business process management. The aim of this enterprise information management strategy is to promote support by decision-makers for a whole of organisation approach to sound records and information management. The overall aim of the research program is to develop models and implementation methods that will support standards-compliant, efficient and long-term digital information management in both public and private organisations.

    Recordkeeping definitions in legislation:: a conceptual step towards smoothing business interaction in the digitally networked world?2013In: Archives: the Future: Australian Society of Archivists 2013 Conference / [ed] Shapley, Maggie, Canberra, 2013Conference paper (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    Legislation is important to recordkeeping strategies and requirements, since it determines which records are needed for legally legitimate actions. Yet the concepts of a document, a record, a case, a transaction, etc., are frequently defined differently in various laws even within national boundaries and are urgently in need of harmonization to minimize complications and barriers to e-business transactions.

    Every country has its own legislation system which has been adjusted over time in correlation to national context and its surrounding society (Duranti, 1989-1990, p. 5). Duranti and Goh (2012) provided sound arguments as to why it is important to ensure national archival legislation keeps pace with our digitally networked society with its increasingly blurred borders. In addition to their own national law, members of the European Union (EU) are obliged to follow EU-legislation requirements. There are three types of EU legislation: regulations, directives and decisions. A regulation is applicable in all EU countries. Directives are general rules. A decision is a stipulation of issues of concern for specifically mentioned persons or organizations (European Commission, 2013).  Recommendations and statements are not binding, but may, for example, be used by the EU as support in interpretation of EU-legislation (Sveriges Riksdag, 2013). Hence, within public organizations, there is a close relation between records, recordkeeping processes, legislation and accountability.  Yet research in Sweden has shown that 24/7 e-service web-interfaces serving e-government strategies and ambitions are sometimes developed without consulting recordkeeping professionals, in ignorance of legal requirements for capture of records and that preservation issues are rarely considered when acquiring new digital systems (Kallberg, Svärd and Sundberg, 2010). Several other European studies also identify a lack of recordkeeping awareness within public organizations (Barata, 2004; Valtonen, 2007; Shepherd, Stevenson, & Flinn, 2009; Riksarkivet, 2010). However, there is currently a strong European political ambition to implement eGovernment services, which aims to promote cross-border business development. On the other hand, this challenges archival thinking to meet business, technological and legal requirements stipulated for each country. Varying legal definitions used can cause major problems for transactions both within a country and across national borders, even in something as seemingly simple as exchanging e-invoices. This paper will discuss an approach to identifying a way forward for harmonizing legislation that contains recordkeeping requirements across the EU.

    • Identifying the range of / types of laws within countries and EU that define a record
    • Using the ICA multilingual terminology database, to check and add to definitions already found there
    • Checking against definitions found in international standards.

    Research towards harmonizing these crucial definitions will be very challenging, given linguistic and cultural differences but the ICA multilingual terminology database is a potential vehicle for checking existing usage, adding to the definitions and quotations from legalislation and the literature already found there and adding new terms. The foundation version of the ICA-funded Terminology Database, developed as an ICA Section for Archival Educators’ project led and hosted by the University of British Columbia, contains definitions with examples of usage for an initial 300 archival terms across 16 languages. It is planned for public release in the first half of 2013.

    The author, a senior lecturer at Edith Cowan University in Australia, discusses the literature used to teach macroappraisal of electronic records through distance education techniques within an environment rooted in the Australian records continuum. In this context, students are given a sound grounding in systems analysis and design, as well as functional appraisal and the importance of metadata. A key teaching element is the International Standards Organization’s Information and Documentation – Records Management (ISO 15489), which she demonstrates has strong parallels to the principles of systems analysis and design.

    When is a record archival?: The Australian Approach to Recordkeeping2009In: Zwischen analog und digital - Schriftgutverwaltung als Herausforderung fur Archive. Beiräge zum 13. / [ed] Lutz, Alexandra, Marburg: Archivschule Marburg , 2009, p. 59-72Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Australian archival authorities take a very active role in setting records management standards, providing guidelines for records managers in their work and approving records retention and disposal schedules for state and national government agencies. Thus ‘archivists’ in Australia have a very strong role in records management processes. There are two principal drivers for this approach: one is the practical matter of capturing and managing digital records, and the other is the acceptance of the Records continuum theoretical model. This paper  outlines some specific approaches taken to identifying and managing archival records in Australian government systems and how this affects the structure of the recordkeeping professions and professional education.

    Abstract [en]

    Building virtual archives and preservation curriculum laboratories centered around born-digital and digitized records is a collaborative project currently underway between Simmons College (US) and Mid-Sweden University. In this virtual environment, issues of trust are central to the process, in terms of the both archival curriculum and the collaborative education process itself. The article describes the project, the collaboration, and offers a range of scenarios that demonstrate how the laboratories work within curriculum.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores the possibilities for international common core curricula across archival education programmes in three ways. Three universities’ existing but independently developed curricula are analysed to identify common core content. The development of the programmes over time is also described noting some of the influences that have contributed to the current content of the three programmes.            A survey of the views of archival educators on the possibilities and the barriers to developing and sharing courses internationally was also conducted. Some attempts to cooperatively develop shared courses across international borders are also described, demonstrating that collaboration between archival educators is in progress.

    Abstract [en]

    Sustainable archives and preservation education in a global digital society demand collaborative frameworks and multiple, geographically diverse partnerships.  This poses considerable challenges for educators. A consortium between archival education programs at University College London, Mid Sweden University and Simmons College, Boston, is addressing these challenges within an innovative virtual learning environment developed, built and shared among the three schools. Participants from each of the three programs describe, analyze and demonstrate ongoing collaboration, research and curriculum development unified through the Digital Curriculum Laboratory (DCL). They also explore the implications of these types of learning resources and collaborative approaches for supporting archives education internationally.

    Mature Public e-Services Without Mature Recordkeeping – An Impossibility?2010In: iRMA Information and Records Management Annual, ISSN 1836-3202, p. 71-82Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish Government has established the eGovernment Delegation agency to identify and support excellence in e-government implementation strategies. This agency has commenced working with the National Archives, to ensure that archival requirements are addressed when developing new e-services. However, the prevailing view of archives is a traditional curatorial approach, which focuses on capturing the end product once actions have been completed. In the digital environment, the prevailing archival practice frameworks are not adequate to the task of capturing the full digital context and process that is essential for a complete record. Previously, when paper records were aggregated on a physical file, the full record of processes was more likely to be captured and managed for the long term.

    Results from two empirical case studies will be used to present and illustrate the risks and problems generated by an approach where the records are not identified and captured until late in the business process. In this paper the term post hoc approach to records capture is used to describe the method whereby an attempt is made to capture records, including the necessary metadata, after they are created, without prior planning or system design. One of the Swedish eGovernment Delegation’s aims is to motivate public agencies to reach level four on Layne and Lee’s e-government maturity model, that is, full integration of interaction between agencies and citizens. However, the model does not incorporate any recordkeeping requirements in its maturity benchmarks. It is clear these kinds of e-services are so complex that late intervention by archivists will not be adequate for needed recordkeeping support and long-term preservation. So it is essential that guidance on archival preservation of integrated e-services is made available as soon as possible, particularly as current trends in government indicate that e-services will be outsourced to private providers.

    Strategies are proposed for including recordkeeping re- quirements in e-service models. Advantageously, this can be done using existing benchmarking tools such as GARP, ISO 15489, ISO 30301 and the ICA Principles and Functional Requirements for Records In Electronic Office Environments.

    Open data through the archive: A new role for archivists2014Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The role of the archivist in exploiting and accessing open data as public records in an open government environment is explored.  The possible role, responsibilities and mandate of an archivist in this new public sector context are examined. Necessary knowledge, skills and competence are identified. 

    Content:

    Expectations of a more proactive release of public records and technical developments that support new ways of publishing and reusing digital information, for example as open data on the internet, create new challenges and change the way public records are managed and made accessible to citizens, which will also involve new professions in the management of records. Fundamentally this raises questions of how, in this new management environment, the trustworthiness of the records could be maintained and how the archives and records management profession could contribute to this, related to other professionals involved in these processes.

    In Sweden there is a long tradition of openness and citizens´ right to access public records. But with the implementation of e-government follows a new perception of what openness means and “open government” is a concept that seems to go further and be more proactive. A part of this study will be to analyze and define what is meant by ‘open government’ and ‘open data’ as they are used in Sweden, i.e. how ‘open data’ differs from ‘public records’ for example. In Sweden there is no formal records manager profession, but the archivist often does the corresponding work. That is why this project also includes the archivists´ role in the open government environment.

    This study will reflect upon the archivists´ role in this process and what is needed to ensure a trusted proactive release of public records. To identify what skills, guidelines, knowledge and mandate are needed. The study will focus on StockholmCity’s work on open data, which is an important part of the open government agenda, through the perspective of Stockholm City Archives.

    Scientific contribution:

    Case study methods are used to examine the role of the archivist in the domain of access to public records in an open government and open data environment. The study examines what role an archivist in the public sector currently has, and what knowledge, skills and competence are needed for these new challenges.

    Interpretation of existing work and the perception of the situation by practicing archivists in this changing environment provide valuable data. The case study is based on the City of Stockholm because it is quite progressive in its work on open data. It is now running an open data project, in which the Stockholm City Archive plays an active role. The role of the archivist in practice, experiences and possible needs and missing factors will be explored. Data will be collected by interviews and text analysis. Needed strategies and guidelines will be identified.
