upgrade to the UCL's Research Publications Service

A major upgrade has been applied to RPS (UCL’s Research Publications Service).  Although the functionality is very similar to the existing version of RPS, the upgrade brings a new look to your profile. You will be able to navigate easier between pages in your profile with reoccurring options at the top and to the left of each page. There are some changes to terminology within the service. For example publications become ‘Mine’, ‘Pending’ or ‘Not Mine’ depending on whether you have ‘Claimed’ or ‘Rejected’ them. If you need help with  the new service or with any other aspect of RPS including getting rid of duplicates,  and sorting out various problems please contact the library  and we will help.  Alternatively the Library offers  training sessions  below:  25 April 201310.30-12.00ICH Wolfson Centre Large Cluster room 1 (F17)30 May 2013  10.30-12.00ICH Wolfson Centre Large Cluster room 1 (F17)27 June 201310.30-12.00ICH Wolfson Centre Large Cluster room 1 (F17)25 July 201310.30-12.00ICH W…
