Content Categories

Research Output: This category includes publications and other types of research outputs. Before adding any research outputs manually, be sure you have added any relevant sources as outlined above. You can also import at the article level from these import sources, perhaps if you just have one article from a source and don't want to add it to your regular feeds. It is also possible to import research outputs from BibTex, OpenAire, or RIS files. 

If you do need to add a work manually, you can do so by selecting from the Research Output menu which will open a box to add the entry. Click Save at the bottom of the box.

Activities: This category includes presentations and services. To add an entry, click on the arrow of the Personal tab and click New under the Activity category. Select from the menu as needed and a box will open to enter the information for that activity.

Prizes: This category includes research awards that are not grants, e.g. Best Research Paper at X Conference. Again, select from the menus to enter the award information.

Press and Media: There is a feed that automatically adds press and media mentions to relevant profiles that match by name, but you can also add mentions manually by selecting from the menus and adding the information.

Open Access

There is a field in the Research Output category which could be selected if the work is published or designated open access in addition to providing a link to the work from SURFACE or subject repository, or journal/publisher location. The citation in the public view will be indicated with this icon:
