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.
