With the exception of Identities, only logged in members of getCITED can add
content to its database. The reason for this is to allow for the provision of an
Audit Trail on all of its records. This is necessary as a result of it being possible
for anyone to enter any piece of information in the database. Allowing this is an
essential part of the getCITED vision, as it makes it possible for each of
us to contribute to correcting the errors and omissions we detect as a result of our
expertise in particular areas. The downside, however, is that it makes if possible
for vandals to wreak havoc with its contents. To avoid this happening, we require
that you log in before making any additions or changes, which then allows any member
to see who has entered and altered a record by clicking on its Date Last Modified link.
Within getCITED, the term "publications" is used rather loosely. So although
it's obvious that this is how you add a new book or article or working paper to the
database, it might be less obvious that this is also how you add a conference, a
bibliography, or a discussion group. In any case, this is where you do it.
After you've created your own identity, you may want to create additional identities.
There are many reasons for this, but the obvious one is if you want to create an
identity for someone who is retired or deceased. If getCITED is to realize its
true potential, if will definitely require each of us to do this now and then. That said,
another (unfortunate) reason why you might find yourself creating an identity for someone other than
yourself is if your dissertation advisor requires you to enter her or his CV as part of
your RA duties!
Within getCITED, the term "institution" is used to refer to universities, colleges,
organizations, associations, corporations and other such entities. So if you want to create
one of these, this is where you do it.
The terms "department" and "faculty" are used more or less interchangeably within getCITED.
And while there are no rules regarding the administrative level at which people locate themselves,
we would suggest you do so in the manner that most usefully denotes the affiliations people have
within the institution or organization in question. That said, the way to add a department or
faculty is to display its institution/organization and click on the ADD DEPARTMENT button displayed
at that time.
