Customize: Scholarly Outlet List

The content in this knowledge base is based upon the standard FACULTY180 environment. Your institution may have made changes to customize the FACULTY180 environment to meet your institution's needs; therefore, the screens in your FACULTY180 environment may differ slightly from the knowledge base. For more information, please contact your FACULTY180 administrator.

When adding a Scholarly Contribution and Creative Production entry to the Activity Input Form, related scholarly outlets can be set up to dynamically display when entering a scholarly outlet name. Metrics can also be viewed for individual scholarly outlets. 

Each institution is responsible for uploading their own scholarly outlet data. Interfolio is providing institutions with the following scholarly outlet files that can be uploaded into FACULTY180. This is a complimentary service, and therefore we do not guarantee the accuracy of the data in these files. In addition, we cannot guarantee that the data in these files will be maintained; therefore, institutions are responsible for the maintenance of their own scholarly outlet data.
