An alternative to the above suggestion would be to create a helper method.

def publication_label(category)
  colors = {
    'Nature'      => 'label-info',
    'Tech'        => 'label-success',
    'Application' => 'label-info'

  content_tag(:span, class: "label #{colors[category]}") do
    content_tag(:h6, category)

(Since you are probably also new to rails, you might be able to put that into /app/helpers/publications_helper.rb).

With that helper in place, your view can be as simple as:

<%= publication_label publication.Category %>
