What are the sources of grant and publication information displayed in CUSP?
Grant information is automatically fed from Columbia University administrative databases. Publications are retrieved from PubMed. Grants and publications are updated in CUSP on a monthly basis.
Why is my grant missing from the list displayed in CUSP?
Grants may be missing for several reasons. Grant information is updated in CUSP on a monthly basis. If your grant is new, it may not yet be reflected in the information retrieved from Columbia University administrative databases. Some Columbia faculty members submit grants through entities other than Columbia University (e.g., NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, Research Foundation for Mental Hygiene). Thus, these grants are not in the datab ases that feed CUSP. As CUSP evolves, additional data sources will be added.
Why is my publication missing from the list displayed in CUSP?
Publications may be missing for several reasons. Publication information is updated in CUSP on a monthly basis from PubMed. Publications since the last monthly update will be displayed following the next monthly update. Publications not indexed in PubMed are not currently displayed in CUSP. There are also less common reasons for missing publications. The algorithm that is used to retrieve and process publications takes into account your current name and Columbia as an institution. Thus, your publications prior to your employment at Columbia are not displayed. Moreover, if your name has changed, only publications in your current name are displayed. Another issue may arise if your name is particularly common – too many publications may be retrieved causing the display to be truncated.
Can I personally update or correct grant or publication data?
CU users may edit their own publications. Go to your CUSP personal profile, then click the 'edit publications' link in the left panel.
