Claim your publications to ensure your Elements and UOW Scholars profiles are a complete representation of your research outputs. When Elements finds a potential publication for you, it will be placed in the Pending list on Elements, and you will need to approve the publications as yours.
If you have unclaimed publications, a Claim your research outputs action will appear in My Actions. From here you can claim or reject individual publications using the claim or reject buttons.
You will see the number of publications in each list displayed in the menu bar. Once you have zero pending research outputs, the task will be removed from My Actions.
Note: If you need to review the document before making a claim or reject decision, you can view more information by clicking on the name of the publication. Once satisfied, you can return to My research outputs page and proceed to make your claim or reject decision.
If Elements does not find publications automatically you can add them manually.
This includes non-traditional research outputs (NTROs), which include original creative works, recordings and research reports for an external body.
Publications can be added using the +add new button found under publications on the home page or at the top of the My research outputs page. Then follow these steps to add the publication:
If Elements does not automatically find NTROs, including original creative works, recordings and research reports for an external body, you can add them manually.
You will also need to enter a research statement for your NTRO into Elements. Please see the UOW staff Intranet for information on creating a research statement.
NTROs can be manually added in the same way as other publications, and the following short videos provide some extra context on:
When a research output is imported from an online database (e.g. Scopus or Web of Science), limited information can be directly edited, however an error in the publication data can be resolved by creating a manual record following these steps:
The manually added publication record will be automatically selected as your preferred record for this publication and will be the version that is visible in UOW Scholars.
If the publication was originally added manually, and is incomplete or inaccurate, it can be edited wherever you see a pencil icon.
If other fields or information needs to be updated, or you need assistance, please email the Library team.

To import a file:
Elements will compare these with your current research outputs and generate a list showing any matches.
