To facilitate the implementation and compliance with the Academic Senate Open Access Policy, the UCI Academic Senate, UCI Libraries and California Digital Library (a division of the UC Office of the President) announced the new UC Publication Management System yesterday.
How It Works
The systemwide UC Publication Management System automatically locates electronic copies of publications that you have authored, sends you periodic email alerts to review the publications that were found under your name, and allows you to quickly claim the publications that are yours and reject those that aren’t. The system facilitates the import of publications into eScholarship.
Since faculty manage their publications in myData, it is beneficial for faculty to export their publication data to the UC Publication Management System. These benefits include:
- Faculty would not have to claim each publication in the new system, which can be time consuming.
- Accurate data already exists in MyData, so the information exported to the system will be accurate.
- The system will send periodic email notifications to faculty to review publications that were found under their name. If your publication data was imported from myData, you will not receive any email notifications about those publications.
Compliance with Academic Senate Open Access Policy
The only information exported from myData is your publication data (Title, Authors,…) for articles, books, book chapters, conference proceedings, and will be used only for the sole purpose of complying with the UC Open Access Policy.
If you do not wish to participate and have your publication data exported from myData to the systemwide UC Publication Management System, simply follow these instructions:
- Log into myData
- Navigate to the “Personal Information (Public)” screen
- Check the box (image provided below) no later than March 2, 2015.
