Website Instructions

Setting your password

  1. Go to, click "Utilities" in the top-right, and log in as "newuser" with the provided password.
  2. Do not edit newuser's information, rather, click on "People" in the top-middle and choose your name from the menu on the left side. If you're sure you're not listed, skip to step 8.
  3. A link called "[Edit]" should appear in the upper-right corner of your page; click this, and you will be taken to the page to edit your information. The "Username" field should match your netid (it should not be "newuser").
  4. Is there a password entry field at the bottom of the page? If not, check the "Inactive" checkbox, and click "Save changes."
  5. Now the inactive checkbox should be checked, and you should have an option to enter a new password. First uncheck the inactive checkbox, and then enter a unique password in the "Password" and "Password (confirm)" fields.
  6. Finally, provided that (1) you are setting a password for your account (verify the "Username" field), and (2) "Inactive" is not checked, click "Save changes."
  7. Now you should log out of the "newuser" account and log into your account, using the username that was listed in the "Username" field (should be your netid) and the password you just set.
  8. If you weren't listed on the "People" page, go back to the "Utilities" page, and click "Add a user" in the menu on the left. The heading should now say "Add a user," and you should be able to type in a username. Please use your netid as your username, do not check the "Inactive" checkbox, and do set a password. Then follow steps 6 & 7 as above.

Adding a paper

Before doing this, check the "Publications" section to make sure someone else hasn't already added the same paper.
  1. Go to, click "Utilities" in the top-right, and log in as yourself.
  2. You should now be on the "Utilities" page; if not, click on the "Utilities" link in the upper-right.
  3. Click "Add a paper" from the menu on the left. This page has more instructions.
