Reporting your Research Publications
Elements – Deakin’s system for capturing your research publications.
Elements harvests researchers’ publications on a weekly basis.
Harvesting involves searching appropriate search terms on external databases.
These databases include:
- Web of Science
Elements then notifies you of any new publications matching your name.
You can then claim your publications – and reject those that are not yours.
If not already attached to the found record, you must attach
- the full-text document (published Version)
- and/or supporting evidence
The first author to claim the publication will usually do this.
You will also need to add the following for each claimed publication:
ORCID and Deakin
Configuring your ORCID ID will enhance the ability of Elements to find and match your publications. If your ORCID profile is set up to automatically claim matched records from Scopus, CrossRef or PubMed, or if you included your ORCID ID with your publication manuscript, the publications will be automatically claimed in Elements.
You can manually enter any publications that Elements does not automatically find by
Frequent asked questions
What is the difference between Elements, DRO and Find a Researcher?
All research publications originate in Elements by automatic collection or manual deposit.
Regular data feeds circulate publication information through to the University's institutional repository, DRO.
This circulation follows various administrative and quality checks. Publications are then circulated onto Find a Researcher – the site used to promote and showcase Deakin research.
This graphic outlines the relationship between these three services.
What happens once I have submitted my publication?
- The Faculty Research administration and the Deakin Library team will review all publications submitted.
- They will publish the record live in DRO once they are satisfied the submission data is accurate.
