ResearchOnline@JCU – Time extension to update FoR Codes

Due to problems with ORGU code validation in ResearchOnline@JCU since the upgrade that occurred on the 19th August, the window to add publications for ERA 2012 and amend Field of Research (FoR) codes has been extended by a month to the 3rd of October. As a result, for an extra month, ResearchOnline@JCU will allow authors to ensure their publications are associated with the correct FoR codes. This is part of the preparation for the ERA2012 - the 2nd edition of the national research quality assessment.

By logging into ResearchOnline@JCU, authors can edit the FoR codes for their Live Publications. Authors are able to remove and/or add codes, and re-apportion contributions, as long as the result of the edits lists no more than 3 FoR codes and their contribution percentages add up to 100%. By logging in to the My Publications portal, you will see an overview of all your publications already entered in ResearchOnline@JCU ie all those associated with your loginID. Clicking the '+' icon in front of your publications opens a detailed listing of the metadata associated with this publication. Scroll down to the FoR Codes section, and you’ll notice a ‘FoR Code Editor’ button. If you believe that the listed FoR codes do not adequately describe the content, you can use the FoR Code Editor to modify them.

For authors who have been a member of staff for more than 7 years, and who deposited their own publications, this should simply be a matter of a quick check. If, however, you have only been here a couple of years (since 2005), you’ll need to ensure that ALL of your publications between 2005-2010 are stored in ResearchOnline@JCU - no matter at which institution, or in which capacity, you contributed to the output - as long as your name is listed as an author in the by-line of the publication. For more information, go to ResearchOnline@JCU and on the right hand side you’ll find a set of ‘Deposit Guides’, and on the left a link to ‘Deposit Login’.
