Recommended specifications for researchers' profile image are: 3:4 aspect ratio; portrait orientation; size not exceeding 1MB, and either jpg or png format. Check out the user guide Adding/Updating Personal Details for other details about updating/editing your personal profile.
You can assign someone as a trusted user to manage your account. Follow the user guide Authorising a Trusted User to find out details. Your trusted users must also have a Pure account in the first place. Users with Pure account should be able to login to the CityU Scholars Backend (Pure) with their EID and AD password. If they fail, most likely, they do not have a Pure account. Request ESU to add one for them by filling out the application form and send it to ESU. Further enquires can be directed to email@example.com.
You can create Public or Private CVs in CityU Schoalrs with contents drawn from your Profile information, Research Output and other Activities. You can also add a custom text section to suit your needs. Once published, your Public CV will be displayed on the portal while your Private CVs can be downloaded as MS Word or PDF documents. Follow the steps in the user guide Creating/Editing a Public or Private CV to do this.
Only Scopus, Web of Science and CNKI publications are imported into CityU Scholars. Publications with status of "Accepted for Publication" will not be imported but you can add them manually. See the user guide Creating a Research Output Record Manually on how to do this.
You can search for it in the CityU Scholars backend (PURE). You can claim the content if the publication has already been entered. Once the Library has added your name to the article, it will be visible on your publication list. Follow the steps in the user guide Claiming your Research Output from Pure Backend to do this. 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 levels 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 has already been imported. Check out the user guide Managing Visibility of Records for details.
Contents in the CityU Scholars backend (PURE) can be connected by establishing relations with each other. You can link records together to highlight the outcome of a Project, whether it is a Research Output, Activity, or other Projects. See the user guide Establishing Relations between Records to find out how to do this.
Research degree and professional doctorate students are required to submit an electronic or ‘soft’ copy of their theses at the same time that printed or 'hard' copies are submitted. Same as that for the printed copies, the submission of a soft copy of the thesis is also part of the graduation requirement. You may refer to the Policy on Electronic Theses for more details. For details of electronic thesis online submission, please refer to How to Submit an Electronic Thesis.
CityU Scholars showcases the grant records which are synchronized automatically from the University’s project management system ERIC. To facilitate the showcasing of grant records which are currently not covered by ERIC, researchers are allowed to manually add these grant records approved from the year 2006 onwards for showcasing in CityU Scholars. For details, you may refer to the user guides Adding Grants (Non-ERIC records only) and Approval of Grants (Non-ERIC records only).
This depends on the publisher's Open Access policy. Before uploading, check the publisher agreement you signed or the publisher's website for its policy. You can also contact Research Support and Scholarly Communication of the Library at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance. Check out the user guides Understanding Open Access and Uploading Full-text for more details.
The user guide Understanding Open Access provides a concise overview of what you need to know about Open Access. Contact Research Support and Scholarly Communication of the Library at email@example.com for any queries about Open Access or if you need help to clarify copyright issues.
Metrics such as journal ranking information can be viewed from the CityU Scholars portal. Wherever the journal name is a hyperlink, click it to the journal record and click the “Journal Metrics” button, if available, for the relevant information. You may also view from the CityU Scholars backend (PURE). PURE stores data about a journal's metrics such as Impact factor, SJR and SNIP.
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 Altmetric page at our Research Guides or 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 our Altmetric page at our Research Guides or the How is the Altmetric Attention Score calculated? page at altmetric.com.
CityU Scholars is powered by PURE which is a hosting application that serves as a current research information system that keeps records of the University’s research output information as well as an institutional repository that hosts the deposited copies (where copyright allows) of the University's research publications and digital theses. CityU Scholars is the front-end portal publicly searchable and browsable by the users worldwide. It draws records maintained in the PURE backend system and displays them publicly to showcase the University’s research impact and performance.
Departmental Administrators for Research Information Management (DAs) are colleagues appointed at the academic department level to help connecting faculty members and the support units (ESU, HRO, LIB, RO, KTO, SGS) to make different research-related processes more effective and efficient. The registration of DAs has to be performed via AIMS by HoD. Should there be any changes in the DAs because of personnel movement, the prior registration in AIMS will need to be updated too. You may refer to the details in the Quick Guide for Registration of Departmental Administrator for Research Information Management.
