Adding new outputs to myPublications
There are multiple methods of adding new outputs to myPublications.
|How does myPublications find my outputs?||
myPublications searches leading online data sources (such as Scopus, Web of Science and PubMed) to gather and continually update output information. Together these databases contain millions of outputs, in over 30,000 titles from over 5,000 publishers, and authored by hundreds of thousands of researchers around the globe.
myPublications works to identify your specific outputs within these millions of records.
myPublications scans online data sources for a range of IDs that uniquely identify you, including ORCID, Scopus Author ID, Researcher ID and even your email address.
This is the traditional way of finding your outputs. myPublications uses your name and affiliation to search the millions of records in the online data sources for your outputs. It may therefore find records that belong to a namesake or miss records that have been published with a different name variant or affiliation. This method is much less precise than ID-based searches and therefore requires you to confirm the results. You will be emailed when new outputs are found.
|How do I add a new output manually?||
Some outputs/disciplines are not covered by the online data sources.
|How do I add outputs from other software?||
You can import outputs from other software, such as Reference Manager or EndNote.
If myPublications finds a match between outputs in your file and those already in myPublications (which might be claimed by another researcher), then it will give you an option for each:
|How can I improve my search results?||
myPublications uses your name and affiliation to search the millions of records in the online data sources for your outputs. It may therefore find records that belong to a namesake or miss records that have been published with a different name variant or affiliation.
There are three sections:
The options for configuring Name-based searches are:
Why are there a large number of pending publications which do not belong to me?
myPublications uses your name and affiliation to search the millions of records in the online data sources for your outputs. It may therefore find records that are not yours if you have a namesake. If you have a large number of incorrect pending publications, then check your search settings. See "How can I improve my search results?" above.
How do I claim or reject all of my pending publications at once?
Tick the check-boxes next to the title and then use the 'Claim' and 'Reject' buttons at the top of the list.
How do I create a record for an output that has not yet been published (e.g. on acceptance)?
See "How do I add a new output manually?" above.
myPublications does not import all of the outputs from my ORCID profile
Only publications with a unique ID (DOI, Scopus EID, and PubMed ID) can be imported from your ORCID profile. These IDs are then used to retrieve the full metadata for those outputs from the primary online data sources (e.g. Scopus). Unfortunately, any outputs manually added to ORCID cannot currently be imported automatically into myPublications.
My ORCID search has failed
Try to verifying your ORCID account by going to Menu > Manage > Automatic claiming, and then clicking on the OCRID box. Be sure that you have also verified your ORCID account using the email that they sent to you upon registration.
