Library Publications Collection Process

Processes for the Library

NURO and the Library’s role:

  • Review/assess publications from the Nominated queue only
  • Unclaimed and not-nominated publications are not reviewed/assessed by the Library
  • Assess and record Category 1 research outputs only. Non-category 1 publications are marked as declined in NURO. They will still display on publications profiles.
  • Prioritise assessment of nominated A1’s and C1’s
  • The Library does not claim publications on behalf of UON authors
  • Requests for further information to enable Category 1 assessment are made only within the NURO system Researchers must login and respond to requests for information within NURO.
  • Correct and/or add missing data for Category 1 research outputs only for bibliographic citation elements only (unless advised otherwise).
  • UON affiliated authors identified in the publication by-line will be the only authors identified. Publications with no UON affiliation are marked as declined in NURO.

Requirements for UON authors

Researchers are asked to regularly login to NURO to:

  1. Claim their publications
  2. Nominate Category 1 research outputs only (A1,B1,C1,E1, J1)
  3. Add any missing publications into NURO by creating a record
  4. Regularly login and respond to any Notifications in NURO (requests for information or evidence of peer review).

Engaging with NURO

UON author engagement with NURO could be optimised by the following strategies:

  1. Logging into NURO more frequently to review pending publications and respond to notifications
  2. Turning on search settings for staff/HDR students who publish (if they are currently turned off)
  3. Reviewing and optimising search settings publications searches in NURO across its major publishing databases
  4. Registering and/or linking an existing ORCID to UON via NURO
  5. Linking Scopus Author ID and ResearcherID via NURO - this will automatically claim matching publications.

Senior Research Librarians are available to assist with these strategies.
