ResearchOnline@JCU: Importing

This Guide will help researchers and depositors get started with ResearchOnline@JCU, the institutional repository of James Cook University. ResearchOnline@JCU is the collection of research outputs by JCU staff and higher degree research students.

Automatic Imports

A weekly programmatic import of JCU publications occurs. It is based on information available in Web of Science. If you have published an article that appears in Web of Science AND you have listed James Cook University as your affiliation, then a record of your article will be harvested and imported.

When this occurs, you'll receive notification via email.

All you need to do is:

  • login to ResearchOnline@JCU;
  • fill in research codes (FoR and SEO);
  • upload a copy of your article - Accepted Version if possible; and
  • deposit your record.

Not all JCU publications are found in this database, so it's a good idea to check your publication list regularly.

Import using DOI

From the Manage Deposits screen, select DOI from the Import From list. Click import.

Many of the mandatory fields required for depositing are filled in, saving some time and effort.

ResearcherID Import

Are you new to JCU? Are you bringing a long list of publications with you?

If you have your publications indexed in Scopus it's possible to have publication records from 2016 onwards imported into ResearchOnline@JCU. The next round of ERA in 2023 will focus on research outputs from 2016-2021.

  • Please send your Scopus Author ID to
  • Any records imported appear in your Manage Deposits area
  • You need to edit the records to add FoR and SEO codes only - these have implications for ERA and you cannot deposit the record without these
  • Upload a document if you can
  • When records are completed deposit them
