Claiming authorship of a paper in your INSPIRE author profile

In INSPIRE, processes automatically assign papers to author profiles based on ID and name-matching algorithms. Unfortunately, no system of name matching is perfect, and sometimes papers do not end up in the correct author profiles. INSPIRE provides a tool that allows you to amend the list of papers in your author profile (under tab ‘Research works’). The following steps show you how to:

    • Confirm authorship of papers listed in your INSPIRE author profile
    • Remove papers listed in your INSPIRE author profile, hence confirming that you are NOT the author/co-author
    • Claim authorship of papers listed under someone else’s INSPIRE author profile to your author profile

Steps:
1) Log into INSPIRE by clicking on ‘Login’, and then ‘Login with ORCID’:

2) Log in by using your ORCID credentials, or

3) any linked account:

use ORCID credentials

4) Click on ‘Account’, and select ‘My profile’:

5) Confirm authorship of papers listed in your INSPIRE author profile: see the papers in your ‘Author profile (under tab ‘Research works’), where a blue icon blue-not-claimed-authorship-icon next to the title of a paper means that its authorship is waiting to be confirmed. To claim authorship of a paper that is listed in your author profile, click ‘claim’ and select ‘This is my paper’:

Note: following your request you will not see the result immediately.

If you have many papers to claim, it is possible to select all of them before doing a bulk claim of authorship:

6) Remove papers listed in your INSPIRE author profile, hence confirming that you are NOT the author: following automatic assignment of authorship, or an update to a paper, you might need to remove a paper that is mistakenly listed in your author profile. To remove a paper from your author profile, click ‘claim’ and select ‘This is not my paper’:

Note: following your request you will not see the result immediately.

7) Claim authorship of papers listed under someone else’s INSPIRE author profile to your author profile: to claim authorship of a paper, go to that author’s profile, and find the paper.  Then click ‘claim’ and select ‘Move to my profile’. Depending on name-matching and/or policy, the paper will then be listed in your author profile or else your request will be sent to the curator for review.

 

See KB ‘Export your INSPIRE works to ORCID‘ if you wish to always push claimed works in your author profile to your ORCID record.
