To create a new publication:

From the popup menu select thefunction. Alternatively, the toolbar button or main menu options can be used.
In the first step of the New Publication Wizard ( Figure 3.14, “New Publication Wizard - main publication file page” ) select the main publication file. If the publication consists of one file such as a PDF or a MS Word document the file should be selected. In case the publication is in the HTML or DJVU format the top level (e.g. the index.html) file should be selected.
If the main publication file is an HTML or DJVU file the wizard will check whether all the linked files are present. It is strongly recommended that only complete publications (without missing files) are put into the library. However, using the Ignore inconsistency option it is possible to proceed with an incomplete publication. All files publication consists of will be added to publication files table. There is no way to uncheck them, they all will be sent to server.
Besides files found by the creator, in the files table all other files (which are in the directory tree of the directory which encloses the main file) will be placed. By default these files are not checked to send to the server. It is possible then to add files which were not found by the creator, but belong to the publication.
Notice that main publication file cannot be unchecked and it will always be sent to the server with application being uploaded.

By default the name is created basis on bibliographic description throught combining the title, author and publishing date. For example, if the title is “Stories”, author is “John Smith” and the publishing date is “2004” then the name will be “John Smith, 2004, Stories” --- first author, then publishing date and title. Whenever a user changes the attributes' values the name is updated. Press the button to move to the next steps.
