Changing the visibility of a record
For most records the default setting is ‘Public - No restriction’. If for a particular record you wish to change this, open the record and scroll down to the ‘Visibility’ section. Choose the appropriate visibility category and remember to press ‘Save’.
Default visibility settings for research outputs
The default setting for research outputs depends on their status.
Outputs which are 'In preparation' or 'Submitted' have the default setting 'Backend - Restricted to Pure users'.
Outputs which are accepted, 'E-pub ahead of print' and 'Published' have the default setting 'Public - No restriction'. These records will be visible in Opus and on your departmental web page.
Visibility settings for impact records
If the potential impact of your research could be commercially sensitive, mark the record as ‘Confidential’.
