Q: My paper is on the Research Repository but doesn’t appear on my profile page. Why?
A: The staff profile system automatically creates a list of your publications from data on the live Research Repository (so items that are in your work area or under review will not appear on your staff profile.) It uses your UWE email address (@uwe.ac.uk) to identify your papers and add them to the list, so there are two steps you need to take when you want to add a publication to your staff profile:
- Add it to the Research Repository
- In the ‘Creators’ field, add your name AND your UWE email address. Without your email address the system will not pick up your paper – it will be visible on the Research Repository but will not appear on your staff profile.
There is also an option to mark records that you do not want to appear on your staff profile – this is automatically selected as ‘yes’, so do not change the status if you wish the items to appear.
It can also take up to 24 hours after an item is made live on the Research Repository before it will appear on your staff profile.
If your item is still missing, contact the repository team for more information – it might be a simple spelling mistake in the email address.
