utomatic claiming for publications using author identifiers. The Synchronizer does this by continuously analyzing publication data already captured in the system for author identifiers.
Now when users visit their Pending Publications page, they may be presented with a short set of questions which will allow them to confirm whether or not an author identifier is in fact theirs. Once confirmed, Elements will then automatically claim all publications which features that identifier and continue to do so in the future. Conversely, by declaring that an identifier is in fact not theirs (e.g. an identifier associated with an author of the same name), all publications which feature that identifier will be automatically rejected and no longer be offered to the user as a pending publication by Elements.
You can add/manage your identifiers under Menu/Publications/Automatic claiming. Selecting 'Yes' tells Elements that publications associated with this ID will be claimed automatically. Selecting 'No' tells Elements that publications associated with this ID will be rejected automatically. Selecting 'Ignore' tells Elements to ignore this ID when found associated with publications.
NOTE: If two ORCiD IDs are associated with the same person, you don't need to merge them for Elements' purposes. If a user says 'yes' to multiple IDs from the same source (eg. 2 Scopus or ORCiD IDs) Elements will store and use both of them.
