  • Handling Maiden/Alternative Names. If you have items that were published using a different name, or one of your co-authors published under a different name, you can now type names as you would like them to appear in the Authors box.  This feature is active on all screens with Author boxes. See details.
  • NIH and NSF Biosketch Reports. As part of deploying the NIH and NSF Biosketch report, Digital Measures put in place the NIH and NSF Biographical Sketch screens for users to designate information that should be included when the biosketch report is generated. The reports are generated using up-to-date report requirements.
