What is Elements?

Elements is an online service provided by Duke Libraries to help Duke faculty and researchers document and manage their publications history for their own needs and to make publications information consistently available for use in professional profiles.

This information will be used in the future for annual reporting, and the combination of Elements and Scholars@Duke will eventually replace existing faculty data systems like FDS and FReD.

You can log in to Elements directly at elements.duke.edu, or via the Publications section when editing your Scholars@Duke profile.

How is Elements connected to Scholars@Duke?

Elements is used to manage the Selected Publications display in your Scholars@Duke profile. To make changes to this section of your Scholars@Duke profile, you must access the Elements system. Information on how to use Elements and how to get help with Elements is available from the Elements Help web site.

How is Elements connected to the DukeSpace repository?

Elements facilitates uploading and management of the full text of publications for archiving in the Duke Libraries repository, and where possible, for making them available freely to colleagues, students, and the general public. In March 2010 the Academic Council adopted an open access policy (see Appendix P of the Faculty Handbook, and more information on the Duke Libraries Open Access web site), and Elements is being implemented in part to make participation with this effort as convenient as possible for faculty.
