The names of authors in Symplectic Elements come from CHMC’s PeopleSoft Human Resource data. Information such as First name, Last name, Department etc. are used to create the author’s profile name. If the author has an alias in the HR system that is different from the author’s legal first name, Symplectic will display the alias e.g. the author’s legal name is Marion but she goes by Judy (this is her alias).
If the author uses an alias and it is not in Symplectic Elements make sure to update author’s alias information through MyHub (see instructions, login and click on 'Go to: Update My Contact Information' to make your corrections).
Symplectic will be updated when the next HR file is available.
This new section, Automatic claiming (named Automatic publication claiming when the option is clicked), allows the user to give Symplectic Elements information to help identify user’s publications and automatically claim them.
