Reporting your publications
Elements is Deakin's system for capturing research publications. Using appropriate search terms, Elements harvests (on a weekly basis) researchers' publications from external databases such as Web of Science, Scopus, PubMed, and Repec, and notifies them of any new publications found. When Elements finds publications matching your name and Deakin it will send you an email, notifying you. Researchers are requested to "claim" publications they have authored (reject any others) and upload the full-text document or supporting evidence, if not already attached to the found record. Usually this will be done by the first author to claim the publication. You will also need to select the appropriate FOR (Field of Research) codes and SEO (Socio-Economic Objective) code and your Department or School, for each publication you claim.
If Elements does not find your publication automatically you can enter it directly (using manual entry), or upload it in a BibTex or Reference Manager format.
You can also watch a short instructional video, How to submit publications to DRO using Elements, on how to report your publications.
What happens once I have submitted my publication?
The Faculty Research administration and the Deakin Library team will review all publications submitted. Once they are satisfied the submission data is accurate, the record will be published live in DRO and you will receive a notification email. Your publication will then be discoverable in DRO. Publications in the HERDC categories will also appear in your Find A Researcher profile.
How do I view my live publications, once submitted?
You are able to view your publications,
- live Deakin HERDC publications in Find a Researcher
- live Deakin publications in DRO
- pending and live Deakin publications in Elements
The Faculty of Arts & Education Research Services team provides advice and assistance to authors claiming or reporting publications through Elements, in person at your desk, via email, or by phone.
