Information about your name and titles is pulled from Mosaic HR and updated regularly. You have the option of changing your display name through a Mosaic self-service module (so it won’t revert back after a weekly update). Information on making this change can be found here. You can also use this portal to add your ORCHID id (see below).
If there is a problem with your titles, please contact Seanna-Lin at email@example.com, who will contact the appropriate people to have this fixed. For other corrections and additions, you should be able to make them directly in the Experts system using the Research Profile Manager. This requires only your MAC ID and password. If off campus, please use the VPN. Or you can contact the McMaster Experts team for assistance at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Library is also hosting an open house Thursday, November 30 from 10:30 to 11:30 am in the Wong Classroom, Mills Library Room L107.
One of the great powers of this system its ability to collect your research publications from various public sources. The publications that currently appear on your profile have been consolidated from these sources and, for the purposes of the launch, were approved by the Experts Team. To add new publications, you will need to log on to the system and claim them when you are notified that they are available.
To make the claiming process even easier, we strongly suggest you obtain and begin using an ORCHID id for your publications. This number gives you a unique identifier that will automatically link publications to your profile, thus reducing the chances of mistaken publications being associated with your name and new publications being missed. Information about ORCHID ids and the steps to register can be found here.
If you have questions, please contact the project team.
