Entering information for someone else
Currently, there is a minimum requirement for entering and registering information in LUCRIS. The minimum level has been agreed by the faculties, and in addition, certain faculties have set a higher level. See local guidelines under the heading "Local guidelines".
In general, researchers themselves are responsible for entering information in LUCRIS, but this can be done through others.
Who can add to and change my information?
Your local reviewer of research output, who is often someone at your local library, will have access to your outputs and can change/make them public in the Research Portal. Publications can also be added automatically, through various imports done every month from PubMed and Web of Science, for example. There may be other people at your department/faculty, such as web editors, who are authorised to make changes to your personal profile due to local guidelines, for example.
You can transfer to another LUCAT ID holder the right to make additions and amendments to your information. To do this, add the person as a "Trusted user" under your personal settings. Remember always to ask the person you intend to add as your trusted user.
LU internal co-authors and project participants
(Internal) co-authors/participants in publications and projects can also edit and add information.
What if it’s wrong?
You will receive an email notifying you if anyone enters information in your name, allowing you to review and add information. Via a link in the email, you can also disclaim your contribution to a publication or suchlike – i.e. you notify the system that you are not to be added to the information (for example if you have a namesake at LU). Emails are only sent to LU employees. You can edit your email settings in LUCRIS.
