This page describes how to configure researcher details in Esploro. For working with researchers in Esploro see here. For information on configuring the various parts of the research information hub see here.
Configuring Researcher Engagement Types
Configuration managers can configure researcher engagement type fields for the researchers in the research repository. These are used to record various engagements that a researcher can be associated with, such as whether a research is designated as an expert in a particular field, or is available to give media interviews. (Configuration Menu > Researchers > Researchers > Researcher Engagement Types).
Configuring Researcher Titles
To configure the titles, you must have one of the following roles:
- User Administrator
You can configure researcher titles (honorifics), such as Mr., Prof., and so forth. The titles are available when adding or editing researchers (see here). Titles are also available for Esploro letters (see here).
You configure the titles on the User Titles code table (Configuration > Researchers > Researcher Titles). For more information about code tables, see Code Tables.
You can add, edit, and delete titles. You can select the order they appear in the drop-down list and the default selected title.
