NECTAR is able to store and display a large amount of information about your research. Data entry is however complex, because the information required for say, a book, is quite different from that required for a journal article, an exhibition or a patent. For this reason, we have defined a number of 'item types' and used different fields to describe them. The item types are listed below and the fields are displayed automatically when they are selected in NECTAR.
An article, abstract, letter or review in a journal, magazine or newspaper
An authored or edited book or conference volume
A chapter or section in a book
A monograph, for example a discussion paper, manual, project report, research report, technical report or working paper
Conference or Workshop Item
An unpublished paper, poster, speech, lecture or presentation given at a conference, workshop or other event
An individual conference item subsequently published in a set of conference proceedings
A thesis or dissertation
A published patent
An artist's artefact or work product
An artist's exhibition or site specific deposit
A musical composition. Use this to deposit scores. Record details of performances of work as type 'Performance'
Performance of a theatrical or musical event
A digital photograph or visual image
A digital video
A sound recording
