  2. Type the surname of your delegate and choose from the drop-down list.
  3. Click Add delegate.
  4. Remove a delegate using the red cross next to their name.

If your chosen delegate does not appear, contact mypublications@sheffield.ac.uk.

Your department may also have myPublications administrator(s) who can access your profile.

FAQs

All of my publications have disappeared / my account appears to have been re-set

Your account is linked to your HR number. It is not uncommon for this to change if you move jobs or roles within the University, even if you keep the same username and email address. If it appears that your profile has been reset, then your HR number may have changed. We can quickly link your new ID to your old account however. Please contact myPublications@sheffield.ac.uk for assistance.
