UWA Profiles and Research Repository Support

Guidance for setting up your UWA Profile and adding publications to your profile and the Repository.

Your publications

As a UWA researcher, you should ensure that all of your publications are added to the UWA Profiles and Research Repository. The Repository is the source of truth for external and internal University publication reporting. Adding all of your publications to the Repository also ensures that your Profile paints a comprehensive picture of you as a researcher.

Research publications and outputs are collected in the Repository on an annual basis and audited by Library staff for Excellence in Research Australia (ERA) eligibility. Audit decisions are based on the UWA Publications Manual which outlines the eligibility and requirements for each category for inclusion in the Excellence in Research Australia (ERA).

Recent publications that are indexed by Scopus or Web of Science AND include the ‘University of Western Australia’ in the byline will be automatically imported into the UWA Profiles and Research Repository. The exact time frame will vary, but publications will be imported within the collection year they were published. You will receive an email notifying you when you have been added as an author to that record. See this example:

Publications that have not been imported into the Repository should be added in one of the following ways:
