Claiming a Record
The Claim feature in Converis allows you to associate yourself to a record in the system, such as claiming authorship of a publication and relating a work affiliation to it. Claiming a record is dependent on validation and acceptance from an authority at your institution. The Claim feature is found in the upper right corner of the browse page.
Click Claim to get started.
- A modal will appear summarizing the record you wish to claim, and the work affiliation that should be attached to it. If you have several work affiliations in the system, select the one most approrpriate.
- Click Save.
Once you have saved your claim, you will receive notification as to whether or not it has been registered*. When the claimed record has been accepted, you will receive a notication and it will appear in the list view for the relevant activity, such as your publications list.
*If your claim fails to register, it might do so for the following reasons:
- You have already claimed the record for the selected work affiliation.
- It has already been accepted.
- You have exceeded the maximum amount of allowed related work affiliations.
