Specifying Publication Contributors

A user can track information about the contributors to a publication on the Publication Contributors subtab. This section describes how to add contributors to a Publications record and specify their role and commission, if applicable. It also describes how an administrator can add additional roles and commission types to Aptify.

Follow these steps to add a contributor to a publication (note that adding contributors to a publication is optional):

  1. Open the Publications record, if not already opened.
  2. Click the Publication > Publication Contributors sub-tab.
  3. Click the New icon in the toolbar to open a new Publication Contributors record.
  4. Specify the contributor in the Person field. 
    • This field links to a record in the Persons service.

  5. Select the contributor's role from the Role drop-down list.
  6. Select the contributor's Commission Type from the drop-down list.
  7. Specify the contributor's commission rate, if applicable, in the Commission field.
    • The Commission Type and Commission fields are for informational and reporting purposes.

  8. If this contributor is the primary person responsible for his or her role in the publication's development, select the Primary In Role option.
    • For example, a coordinating editor or lead author would be primary in their roles.

  9. Enter additional information in the Comments field, as necessary.
