However, if the publication is not in the system, you have to create it manually. See the user guide Creating a Research Output Record Manually to find out details.
There are four degrees of visibility for displaying your publications on the portal - from public to confidential. Setting visibility can be helpful when your Research Output is not formally published but the citation data is already imported, or if you wish to upload full-text files but they are not ready for public view due to publisher policy. Check out the user guide Managing Visibility of Records for details.

Altmetrics are web-based metrics increasingly used in conjunction with traditional bibliometrics such as impact factor or h-index. It has an emphasis on social media outlets as source of data but can also be applied to article, people, journals, books, datasets, etc. Altmetrics are now a trend for measuring impact in a diverse scholarly environment as they look beyond counting with a focus on semantic content. To find out more, check out the Altmetric for Researchers page at altmetric.com.
Altmetrics can be measured by using the Altmetrics Attention Scores. The score is based on a default weighting systema that counts all the online attention Altmetric gathers for an individual research output. The data is drawn from sources such as public policy documents, social media networks and blogs, etc. To find out more, check out the How is the Altmetric Attention Score calculated? page at altmetric.com.
The CityU Scholars backend system (PURE) is a hosting application that serves as an repository for the University's research output and digital theses.
