FAQ Group: Claim Authorship

My article is not shown in the selection of matching articles on the ‘Publications waiting for your confirmation of authorship’ page. Why?

Barckground: Most frequent cases:

  • Your name might be displayed on the record in question in an alternative way compared to your ORCID profile.
  • The record in question is not yet validated (see above).

Solution: The best way to add the record in question to your ScienceOpen profile is to do so via a manual ORCID upgrade. That is, add the record to your ORCID profile first (this can also be automated there), and then click on ‘Refresh from ORCID’ on your ScienceOpen profile. If this is a common problem or you have a married or single name or abbreviated first name in your publication history, you can add such variants to your ORCID profile by using the Also known as feature of ORCID.

I found multiple versions of the same record on the ‘Publications waiting for your confirmation of authorship’ page. Which one should I claim?

Background: In some cases, we receive the same articles from multiple sources and with slightly (or not so slightly) different metadata, hence the duplications.

Solution: Claim the article record with the longest available breadcrumb (yes, it’s green) and with available abstract and article if possible.

In visual terms, we prefer this one or this one  over this one .
