In version 6.2, Symplectic introduced a more extensive privacy framework that allowed objects/items to be set as private, internal or public. The integration we have with Elements can be configured to apply these same familiar privacy concepts to your Explorer for Institutions giving you full control of how your data is shared with us.


You can read more about object privacy for Element 6.2 and above here (login required).


Synchronizing objects based on their privacy level is available at the following restrictive levels:

  • Public - We will only import public user profiles, research outputs and relationships
  • Public and Internal - We will only import public and internal user profiles, research outputs and relationships


Objects and relationships that are set as Private won’t ever appear in the Explorer.


If you would like to customize your existing configuration settings please contact support@altmetric.com.


Notes
  • Changes to your Explorer for Institutions configuration will trigger a reset and full import of your Elements data. Depending on the size of your institution it may take several days to complete.
