BRIAN (Bournemouth Research Information And Networking) is BU’s publication management system.
Bournemouth University Research Online [BURO] is the University's Institutional Repository. BURO is supported by Eprints software.
Uploading your full text to BRIAN – 3 easy steps!
If you are unsure of how to upload the full text of your publication onto BRIAN to be deposited in BURO, these are the three easy steps you can follow!
Step 1 – Ensure publication record already exists in your BRIAN account. If it does not, click on the ‘+’ on the My publications tab.
Choose your research output type, enter the title and search - do not skip.
If the record of your publication already exists within BRIAN, you simply need to scroll to it and ‘claim’ it.
Otherwise, scroll to the bottom of the page and click on ‘Go to next step". Tick the author box to populate the field with your name. You can then populate, as a minimum, all the required * fields. Don’t forget to scroll to the bottom to ‘save’ your record!
Step 2 – Once the publication record exists within BRIAN, you will be taken to the deposit page automatically. If doing it at a later date, look for the Deposit button on the output itself
Step 3 – Locate the correct version of your full text in accordance with the policy advice from Sherpa Romeo; and then click ‘upload’. Remember this is a two part process so you must complete deposit.
When the upload is complete, you will be notified on the screen that your full text has been deposited (in BURO review).
Once the BURO team has checked for copyright compliance and published the output, the link to the full text in BURO will be created and the link will also appear on your Staff Profile Page. If at any point you are unsure of this process, please send an email either to BRIAN@bournemouth.ac.uk or BURO@bournemouth.ac.uk for assistance and advice.
