This page describes how to configure institution settings in Esploro. For information on configuring the various parts of the research information hub see here.
Multi-Lingual Data Elements
You can set the default language and additional languages that will be used in Esploro. To configure these values, open the Multi-Lingual Data Elements page (Configuration Menu > General > Institution Settings > Multi-Lingual Data Elements).
Select the default language from the dropdown list. Then select additional languages from the multi-select list.
Watch the How to Add Abstracts and Keywords in Multiple Languages video (2:17).
Configuring Default Researcher Settings
You can configure the default values for researcher notifications for all new researchers. For details on configuring the opt in defaults for researcher letters see here.
To configure the default publication language, navigate to Configuration > Researchers > Default Researcher Settings. For more information see Default Publication Language in Adding Researchers.
Research Jobs Configuration
You can activate and deactivate Esploro scheduled jobs. You do this from the Research Jobs Configuration page (Configuration > General > Institution Settings > Research Jobs Configuration):
To activate or deactivate a job, select the appropriate radio button for a job and select Save. To run the job immediately, select Run Now. For detailed information on jobs see Scheduled Jobs.
Users with both the Configuration Manager and Media Mentions Manager roles can configure the Media Mentions loader job. Currently, the loader runs only for the Retriever format with a RSS URL. You can define the run time in the Schedule field, the status of all incoming records in the Load all records as field, and enter the feed URL in the URL of the feed for the loader field. The options in the Load all records as field are Approved for display in portal and profiles, which is the default, Approved only for display in portal, Approved only for display in profiles, and Pending approval. Although some of the statuses indicate that approved records will display in the portal and/or profiles, the media mentions do not currently display in the portal or profile. If these options are selected when the records are loaded, they will appear in the correct pages when display of media mentions begin on the portal and profile.
Once activated, the Media Mentions Loader job is active in the scheduled jobs on the Monitor Jobs page.
Configuring Citation Sources
Esploro supports recording citation counts for research outputs from several sources. Before you can import citation counts for research outputs, you must verify that you have a license for the data for each source. This is configured on the Citations Sources page (Configuration > General > Institution Settings > Citation Sources):
To configure a source, select the More Actions button, select Customize, and change the parameter to true. Select Save.
The source you set to true is now available to be selected from the Load Citation Metrics page (Repository > Load Citation Metrics). For information on loading citation metrics see here. For information on selecting citation styles when exporting an asset as a citation see Citation Styles List.
Configuring Other Institution Settings
You can configure the Esploro customer parameters for institution settings from Configuration Menu > General > Institution Settings > Institution Settings.
The following list describes the Esploro customer parameters for institution settings that you can configure. For other general settings that can be configured, see here.
