View and modify your outputs
|How do I view my outputs list?||
The Publications box on your home page summarises your outputs by type, highlights any pending publications, and displays your summary metrics.
Go to Menu > Manage > Publications
Outputs are collated into three sections:
Sort your outputs using the options at the top, or filter using the options on the right.
Each output has its own record, headed by its title. There are two view options: Detailed view shows the full record, whereas Compact view provides a summary. The full record shows:
|How do I make changes to an output?||
To add to or change a record, simply click on the title of the output, then choose Add manual record or Edit record within the Data sources section.
If an output has been incorrectly classified (e.g. as a journal article rather than a conference paper) then simply click on the current classification (e.g. Journal article) and select the correct type from the drop-down list.
|How do I merge duplicate outputs?||
It is common for an output to be found in more than one online database (e.g. in Scopus and Web of Science). myPublications analyses the metadata to automatically join them into a single record. See the data sources in which an output has been found under the data sources tab. Sometimes slight differences in metadata between databases causes myPublications to create a new output record for each data source, rather than joining them. These duplicate records must be joined manually.
Please do not merge outputs if both have a live open access file, since this can cause the file to be deleted from the repository. Contact OAEnquiries@sheffield.ac.uk for support.
|Two outputs have been joined together by mistake||
Sometimes the similarity of different outputs causes myPublications to think they are the same, e.g. a conference paper and a journal paper with the same title. In these cases, the single record will need to be manually split into separate records.
How do I delete an output?
You can move an output into your Not mine list by clicking the red cross icon on the record.
What does favouriting an output do?
Favourite an output by clicking the heart icon on the record. These outputs will be displayed prominently on your staff profile web page (if linked to myPublications).
What does hiding an output do?
Hide an output by clicking the hide icon on the record. These outputs will not be displayed on your staff profile web page (if linked to myPublications).
How do I change the type of an outputs that has been classified incorrectly (e.g. as a journal article rather than a conference paper)?
Change the output type by clicking on the current classification (e.g. Journal article) and select the correct type from the drop-down list.
Can I change how my outputs are displayed in reports and on my website?
Yes. The online data sources often vary in their use of capitalisation or abbreviated journal names. If your output has been found in more than one data source then:
If there is only one data source, then create a manual record.
