How to add a collaborator to your paper

PRO badge.png Invite collaborators to your paper! 


What are collaborators for?

  • Used to add a Co-editor: If you have created a paper but would like to grant permission to colleague(s) to be able to co-edit and curate the content on your paper, you can add them as a collaborator.  Your collaborator(s) will have all the same super-powers that you do, except he or she, will not have permission to delete or create new papers under your account name.  

  • Used to give a user permission to see a private paper: Using for market, industry or trend monitoring and don't necessarily want anyone else to view your paper? Set your paper to private and the paper will only be seen by you and any collaborators you have invited.  A private paper will not be listed on your public profile, nor will it be searchable on the newsstand.  When a paper is private, only collaborators will receive the email notification.


Add a collaborator
