- If you need to add your work to KAR use the guidance on the KAR webpages to manually add or import your works to KAR.
- If you are a new member of staff, add your key publications from other institutions to make sure you have a good publication history in KAR.
- Make sure each entry in KAR contains your full email address: A.N.Other@kent.ac.uk, not firstname.lastname@example.org.
