About Data Refreshes

Throughout the year, the Interfolio Data Service seeks out and pulls in data, at regular intervals, about academic publications that faculty members have produced including books, book chapters, journal articles, and conference proceedings publications. The Data Service gets this data from a large data pool covering over 230 million records, published and tracked in over 60,000 reputable periodicals/outlets.

On a regular basis, the data available through the Interfolio Data Service is refreshed with new batches of bibliographic records that we have discovered and matched to scholars. 

The flip side of this batch update scheduling, of course, is that the Data Service is not continuously updated at all times. If you have published something new since the last update, but you haven't seen it show up on your Home page yet, its probably on its way.

Heres what to do:

  • If you dont need it yet, just give it time. If it doesn't show up in the next batch after that, then it may not have been captured in our source data pool. You may need to enter it manually or (if applicable at your institution) search through an individually linked data source to see if its there.
  • On the other hand, if it is time-sensitive, youll need to manually enter it, or (if applicable at your institution) search through an individually linked data source to see if its there.

If you need support related to your publications data or the Interfolio platform, we recommend you seek support from Interfolio Scholar Services.
