You can import publication information into PRO directly from other scholarly publishing agencies (such as PubMed, Crossref, Google Scholar, Scopus, etc.). To do so, go to the Publications screen and click on the “Import” button at the top, right-hand side of the screen.
This will take you to the Import Publications page. From here you can import via BibTeX file or through a third-party database such as CrossRef, PubMed, or ORCID. (Connect your ORCID iD to your PRO.)
1) Use one of the links provided on the Import Publications page to generate a BibTex file for your publication/s or feel free to use a file you've already prepared.
2) Click the "Choose File..." button on the left-hand side of the screen, under "Import from a BibTeX file". This will open a window to your computer/device through which you can select the file you want to import.
3) Select your file and click "open". PRO will now import your file and check for duplicates. If a duplicate is detected, you will be prompted to review the records and decide whether or not to import the new file.
4) If no duplicates are detected, PRO will open a preview of the record you're about to import. Click "Finish Import" for the last step to appear, then click "Import" in the pop-up window for final confirmation.
1) Select the database you want to search through the "Select a service" drop-down menu. If you choose ORCID, please make sure your PRO is connected to pull records from your ORCID. If it's not already connected, selecting ORCID will prompt you to do so.
2) Search for your publications via the various options under "Search Criteria". You can select multiple criteria like date, publisher, your name, etc. Click the search button prompt to start the search. PRO will now pull all relevant articles associated with your search from the database.
3) A list of search results will appear. Select the records you want to import by clicking the checkbox next to the record on the right-hand side of the screen. Click "Continue" in the upper-right-hand side of the screen after you've made your selections.
4) PRO will now search for duplicate records. If duplicates are detected, you will be prompted to review the records and decide whether or not to import the new records. To prevent importing the duplicate record, select the "Skip" button at the bottom of the screen. To go ahead and import it, select "Import" at the bottom of the screen. Click "Continue" at the top of the screen once you've completed your review of duplicate records.
5) If no duplicates are detected, PRO will open a preview of the records you're about to import. Click "Finish Import" for the last step to appear, then click "Import" in the pop-up window for final confirmation.
