Symplectic Elements Training Sessions Scheduled This Summer


Symplectic Elements is a faculty profile software platform designed to showcase  academic and research accomplishments for internal and external audiences while providing faculty complete control over what appears on their profile.

Elements' internal tools help build a scholarship profile, recommending scholarly works to claim. Once a user claims their Author Identifiers from scholarly databases, the system can automatically populate publications. For scholars who have works that are not captured by traditional publishing, organizers will work with you to make sure your faculty profile accurately reflects your up-to-date scholarly output. 

Training materials for SLU faculty to access can be found online

Organizers have planned virtual demonstrations and tutorial sessions for the coming weeks. Register for one or more of four meetings in June/July.

These demonstrations are general sessions open to all where faculty can ask questions and learn the ins and outs of claiming author identifiers, building a profile, confirming publications, and more. Groups of faculty can arrange more specialized trainings, and we can add sessions as demand dictates.

Email at with any questions.
