CRO (CSU Research Output) is the University's Institutional repository. It is an electronic archive which stores and showcases the research publications of Charles Sturt University. CRO is an online, open-access environment, making it easy for researchers to find and access the University's published research output using the CSU Library catalogue Primo Search, and National Library of Australia's Trove database.
Content on CRO includes:
|Researcher profiles||Research publications|
|Prizes and Awards||Press/Media|
|Impacts (in development)||Datasets|
Creating a CRO profile
Your CRO researcher profile is a one-stop hub for your research output. Other research profiles can be incorporated into your CRO profile, including:
- ORCiD profile
- Scopus Author ID
- Mendeley profile ID
- Links to your website(s)
- Areas of research
- Employment information
- Professional qualifications
All CSU researchers should have a CRO researcher profile. If you cannot find your profile in CRO and/or require assistance to update it, please contact your Faculty Liaison librarian.
Tips for promoting your research using CRO
Integrating your ORCID profile into CRO
The video below demonstrates how to set automatic exporting of ORCID publications into CRO.
h-index in CRO
A researcher's h-index in CRO is drawn from the Scopus Journal Database h-index. This blog post explains more about how the h-index is calculated for authors. The h-indexes in Scopus and CRO will match perfectly if all the publications listed in Scopus are also listed in CRO. If they don't match you can import them into CRO. If they do match and the h-indexes are different please contact your Faculty Liaison Librarian.
Please note: the h-index in Google Scholar bears no relationship to the h-index in CRO because they use different sources to create the index.
Exporting your publications from Endnote to CRO
Multiple publications can be exported from your Endnote library into CRO. This process requires that you first install the St. Andrew's University Endnote Pure Output Style in order to create good quality CRO records from your Endnote library metadata.
Step 1: Download the St. Andrew's Endnote Pure Output Style
Step 3: Go into each newly-created CRO record to check its accuracy and add Field of Research (FoR) codes. Check that the co-authors listed are correct.
It is also possible to paste formatted Endnote records into CRO. More information about this can be found on the Add Publications to CRO help page.
