Managing your Open Research Online items

Items in your User Area

If there are items in your User Area that you have begun work on in the past but not yet deposited, these will be shown in yellow. The icons to the right of these items allow you to view an item in detail, edit it, destroy it and deposit it.

Clicking on the 'view item' icon to the right of the item will take you to the 'Item Work Area'.

In the Item Work Area

You can use the tabs along the top to navigate to different pages connected to your item. The tab buttons are described below:

  • Summary: produces a preview of how the item will look on ORO.

  • Actions: gives you the option to deposit the item, create a new version based on an exact copy or by using the item as a template, edit the item, or destroy it.

  • Export: provides options for exporting the data thus far entered for the item.

  • History: shows the history of changes made to the item.

  • Issues: lists any issues associated with the item.

Items in the Live Repository

You can also amend live items by clicking the "Submit Changes (Authors/Depositor only)" button at the bottom of any live ORO item page. This allows you to update any details or add full text to records already live. Changes just to bibliographic information will be made live automatically, changes to full text will be checked by the ORO team.
