External publications (filter)

A publication is considered "external" when all internal authors, meaning authors from AU, are only affiliated with external organizational units according to the publication.

External publications are managed with the same workflow as is used for internal publications. That means that external publications are included in standard views and filters that are built on "Managing organization unit".


The inclusion of external publications is first and foremost  noticeable in matrix views and in " X Research outputs are waiting to be pushed to next workflow step" shown in the task list.

It is only the number that has increased compared to which publications are actually managed. Persons with editorial roles only need to complete the tasks that they have agreed to in their local organization.


If you use the report module in Pure or pull lists in the list view to report on publications, and use the filter "Managing organisational unit" you list will include external publications.

To exclude the external publications you need to add an extra filter. Add the filter "Origin" and select "With internal affiliation". This filters out the external publications.

Remember to save your filter with the new configuration so it is ready available for the next time.
