You need to provide:

Authors are added by tipping the first letters of the author’s last name.
In the appearing List you can pick an already known author or a registered person.
A known author is an author how is already related to other publications but not registered in LHA as a person.

If the author is not in the list fill in the name in publication style and click on the name under New Author.

Registered authors will be linked to their author profiles.

After filling in all your related information clicking the button Create.

3. Editing Publications

By entering the edit mode of a specific publication (as described in the previous sections) you can manage the meta data of the publication.

  • Under Project you can add some more projects or remove existing relations.
  • Associate Authors is a list of all the authors related to the publication. LHA is suggesting the author based on existing, registered authors in the database. If there is a wrong or missing suggestion, pick the correct one by writing first letters of the last name from the list.

  • Under Summary you can write a short summary of the main facts of this publication.
  • Reference specifies a HTML link if there is no DOI or PubMed entry.
  • Human Diseases related to a publication can be assigned by selecting the HDO phrase of the list or by typing the first Letters.

Events, Investigations, Studies, Assays, Data files, Models, Presentations and Documents can also be associated to the publications. These entities must be created before being referenced.
