In one of my article records I found the capture: “This record is not yet validated.” How can I validate it?

Background: Being a research aggregator site, we bring together articles from a variety of platforms (such as CrossRef, PubMed, PubMed Central, arXiv, ORCID or publisher RSS feeds). This is in order to achieve the highest quality of metadata and discoverability of article records for you all. However, not all are equally trustable in terms of the quality of metadata, and not always consistent across sources. Considering that incomplete or ‘not fully accurate’ (tech speak: dodgy) metadata could cause serious damages in our system, we automate preference for trusted, cross-referenced repositories such as PubMed or CrossRef over manually edited or manually editable data sources such as article references.

Solution: To validate the record in question, please link it with one of the above repositories by assigning a CrossRef DOI, PMID, PMCID, or arXiv ID to your record in ORCID and the click on ‘Refresh from ORCID’ on your ScienceOpen profile. To make it even smoother, here you can learn about how to link your ORCID with the supported repositories (CrossRef or PubMed). Having no such ID to assign, unfortunately we cannot validate your record. In such cases please contact your publisher.
