Priority Processing of Records Related to RGC Reporting (2018-2019) 

A considerable amount of new records have been created in CityU Scholars awaiting to be validated. For the purpose of the 2018 - 2019 RGC Reporting Exercise, the Library will first validate records of publications that fall into the reporting period (i.e. 1 July 2018 to 30 June 2019) with priority. 
Given the high transaction volume, the processing time may take several days. We are grateful for colleagues’ patience. 

For the other records not directly related to the 2018-2019 RGC Reporting Exercise, please be reassured that the Library will continue to process them as soon as possible.

CityU Scholars - Training Workshops and Consultation Sessions

CityU Scholars is the University’s Integrated Research Information System where faculty members and research students maintain their public researcher profiles and update their publication lists as well as other achievement information. The public researcher profiles facing the global audience will help enhance visibility and attract collaboration opportunities. Records in the System will be used by the University for reporting (e.g. RGC reporting), performance review (e.g. annual appraisal) and benchmarking purposes. It is therefore important that our researchers learn how to manage their CityU Scholars accounts.

New faculty members and research students, newly appointed Departmental Administrators for Research Information Management, or those who would like to refresh their knowledge on CityU Scholars are welcome to attend.

CityU Scholars - Training Workshops and Consultation Sessions

The Library is pleased to offer another round of CityU Scholars Training Workshops and Consultation Sessions at the start of the new academic year. If you are a new faculty member, a newly enrolled research student, a newly appointed CityU Scholars departmental administrator, or even if you would simply like to refresh your knowledge on CityU Scholars, the Workshops and Consultation Sessions are for YOU.

CityU Scholars is an Integrated Research Information System which aggregates the University’s research information from different internal and external sources on a single platform. Its web portal showcases our researchers’ research output, activities and achievement to the global audience. Records collected in the CityU Scholars will be extracted by the University for reporting (e.g. RGC reporting), performance review (e.g. annual appraisal) and benchmarking purposes.

New faculty and research students by default will have a researcher account in CityU Scholars. With the account, you will need to do the following:

  • Add in your biographical information to enrich your CityU Scholars researcher profile
  • Manage your research output information by verifying and claiming the Library-harvested records or creating your own records
  • Enter your research activity information (e.g. journal editorship, organising a conference, consultation services)
  • Record your research achievement (e.g. prizes and honours, impact cases, press and media coverage)
  • Complete the ORCID Creation and Integration Exercise which is a University Requirement

The Workshop will show you how to perform the aforementioned.

Registration is needed for the Workshops only. We encourage you to stay behind for the Consultation Session that follows. Bring your own CV or publication list, try entering the information in your CityU Scholars account and discuss your questions face to face with our ambassadors in a more personalized way during the Consultation Session. Those who skip the Workshop are also welcome to walk in for the Consultation Session.
