My publications includes more activities than traditional publications. We have added Professional/Scholarly presentations and Arts activities to this session based on how these activities are reported at UGA. Please refer to the Activity types defined page which includes a brief description of the type. You can also review the "I did this....where does it go" page for real-world descriptions of activities and where to put them.
Elements has a publication search tool called the “Synchronizer” that searches online public and subscription databases and downloads bibliographic details of your publications using "My search settings" defaults.
In addition, Elements has an import feature that allows you to export publications from a third party source such as Google Scholar or EBSCO and import them into your profile. Note: This may be the best option for some disciplines.
In some cases, faculty may need to manually enter publications. If/when you add UGA co-authors to your manual record, they will be linked to your publication. To this end, it is important to make sure that the key information is accurate. This also improves the matching algorithm for the online publication search tool. If the title, dates, authors are inaccurate, the manual record will not match an online record if the publication becomes available online.
Follow the path below to determine the best method for entering your publications.
