Once a publication is publicly available in Enlighten most changes can only be made by members of the Enlighten team.
The status of one of my publications has changed from ‘In press’ to ‘Published’ – how do I change this?
Go to the record in Enlighten for your publication and use the 'Request a correction' button to let the Enlighten team know. They will change the status on your behalf.
There is a record for one of my publications in Enlighten but I am not associated with it as an author.
Contact the Enlighten team via firstname.lastname@example.org giving details of the publication and they will add your name to the list of associated authors.
Not all of my publications are listed in Enlighten.
If you are based in a College where staff are required to self-deposit you can add these. College administrative staff may be able to help you with this. Enlighten staff may also be able to help - contact email@example.com for advise. Priority is given to adding recent publications, particlarly those eligible for REF 2014.
Someone else's publication is appearing on my page. How can I remove this?
Contact the Enlighten team at firstname.lastname@example.org with details of the publication. They can remove you from the author listing so that it does not show up on your staff profile page.
I added a publication to Enlighten but it is not showing on my staff page yet.
Once publications have been deposited in Enlighten they move to an Editorial review area before becoming publicly available. Enlighten staff check the details of each publication and add more information where necessary. Depending on the volume of publications being added it can sometimes be a couple of days before publications are made publicly available. Data for staff profile pages is pulled from Enlighten overnight, so it will be the following day before it appears in your staff profile page.
If you deposited a publication more than a working week ago and it has still not appeared you can contact the Enlighten team to check on progress.
How do I select my REF publications?
See the online guide.
Do I need to upload the full text when I’m adding publications I’ll be submitting to the REF?
The University has not asked staff to add full text for all publications being submitted to the REF. However, the University Publications Policy does require staff to deposit the full text of all journal articles and conference proceedings where this is permitted. See the Depositing Full Text tab for more information.
I have recently moved to the University from another institution. Can I add my previous publications to Enlighten?
Yes. Enlighten aims to hold a complete list of all research outputs produced by staff from 2001 onwards. You can either add your publications yourself by following the guidance in the 'How do I add my publications?' section, or send a complete list of your publications to email@example.com, together with details of your GUID and School / Institute. Members of the Enlighten team will then add your publications on your behalf and notify you when the process is complete. Those staff who wish to add outputs produced before 2001 are welcome to do so.
How do I find out how many times my papers have been downloaded from Enlighten?
If full text is available for your publication in Enlighten you can view download statistics by going to the record in Enlighten for your publication and clicking on 'Download statistics' at the bottom of the page. For further details, click on 'More statistics for this item'.
How do I add full text to an existing Enlighten record?
Send the paper as an attachment (Word or PDF) to firstname.lastname@example.org along with the details of the publicaton and we will add it on your behalf.
I want to add the full text of my paper but am not happy uploading a draft/Why does Enlighten ask for the author final version? What is this?
Some journal publishers will only permit authors to upload what they refer to as an author final draft/version and not the published PDF. Generally speaking this is because they feel that if they did permit the published PDF to be uploaded they would go out of business! However, as increasing numbers of funders requiring open access and publishers offering paid open access options it is becoming more likely that you will be able to make the published PDF available in Enlighten so long as you have paid the requisite fee. For more information on what publishers permit see the SHERPA RoMEO database of publisher policies.
