How do I modify a publication?

Based on text by John Reekie from the GSRC website.

If you are logged in to the site, use the publications search page to find the publication you wish to edit.

If you have permissions to modify the publication, you will see several links on the left-hand margin:

  • Edit publication allows you to change the fields associated with the publication -- the author, title, journal, and so on.
  • Change type allows you to change the publication type. You can also use this page to restrict access to members of this website or associate the publication with a group.
  • Upload files allows you to upload additional electronic version of this publication. If you upload a file with the same file name as the current file, then the current file will be replaced. If the upload has a file name that is different from the current file(s), then the new upload will be added to the set of available files.
(For more detailed instructions, see the question on adding publications -- the screens are essentially the same.)

You will be able to modify a publication record and upload files if either

  1. You are the person who originally created the publication record, or
  2. The publication is associated with a terraswarm work-group or SIG, and you are a member of that work-group or SIG.
If neither of these is the case, go to the bottom of the page for the publication, where you will see something like "Posted by Fred Nerfs on September 6th, 2005." Then send email to Fred Nerfs.
