10 October – Repository upgrade advance notice
The Lincoln Institutional Repository is being upgraded. This is necessary to ensure the future stability of the system.
The work may take up to a week, beginning at 4pm on Tuesday 17th October. The Repository will be available read-only for the great majority of this time, only depositing and editing will be disabled. If you have any concerns please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
9th October – A warning – it appears that, according to some sources, publishers Elsevier and the American Chemical Society are taking action against authors who have posted published versions, of their articles, or accepted documents without embargo, on ResearchGate. You are advised to check the copyright on any documents you have posted. If in doubt, link to the Repository version instead.
Guidance for new staff:-
Welcome! We would like to help you by curating your work in a central point. To start, we will be using ORCID to connect your work in the future; please could you go to the link below and click on ‘Register with the Institutional Implementation’ to either link an existing ORCID profile to us or create one to link.
Next, please make records of all of your work in the Lincoln Repository
If you have work in another repository, in Scopus or as a list of DOIs, there is guidance for shortcuts to making records at the bottom of this page:-
Records will be checked by us, which may take a few days, and then will appear on your profile. If we’ve missed anything, or you have any queries, please contact us at email@example.com
If you have some of the information about an article, but don’t know the rest, you might be able to find it at crossref.org. This is particularly useful if you have your title but you don’t know if your article is published yet.
If you have a DOI you may be able to find an Open Access copy of an article at oadoi
