Academic Information Management System (AIMS): 3 Check Duplicates

Input CUHK Associated Author(s)

Co-authored publications with more than one CUHK author must be inputted once only. If your CUHK co-author has already entered the publication record into AIMS and added your name to it, the record will be shown in your AIMS profile. Hence you do not need to input the record again. 

The name of CUHK co-author(s) can be inputted under the section “Input CUHK Associated Author(s).”

  • The section is a mandatory field.
  • Click the add icon to search and add the name of CUHK co-author(s).
  • If you found the author has two records associating with different departments/ institutions, only add the primary affiliation. 
  • Please follow the hint instructions to search for authors.
