How to post a publication on the site? Back to top

You can upload the content to the HED Club library using two methods:

Using «My publications» option on the My account menu

Using «Content» section

Click the «Add publication» or «Add content» link.

First, select the type of your content. For example, if you want to upload an official document, select «Documents» section and put a checkmark against the «Official document» option. Then press  «Start uploading» button at the bottom of the page.

Step 1. Provide a description of the uploaded content. If possible, select the topic, profile, or country-wise component. Specify the target audience of your content

Step 2. Please read the content publication rules  carefully and press «Continue» button.

Step 3. Enter the content title in the «Title» field.

In the «Brief Description» field, you can add a short text to characterize the uploaded content, or add the first part of the sentence of the published content. The description must be no longer than 595 characters.

Add the content text to the «Text» field.

Note that, when simply copying the content text from the file on your computer, the images in the «Text» field will be lost, and the original text formatting will not be saved.

Using the «Formatting» block on the right, you can design the publication text, add images, links to Internet resources, videos and attach various files.

If your content is contained in MS WORD file (*.doc or *.docx files), you can transfer the content from the file to our editor using a special «Upload from the file» function. This will help to import the text to the editor on the site as quick as possible. Besides, such procedure will save photos, tables, and other elements of the file text design. When the file is uploaded, you will just have to make sure that all the elements of your content design are displayed correctly.

However, it should be remembered that after the content has been uploaded from the file, all the information in the «Text» field will be lost, if you had previously posted it.

Having edited the text, press «Continue» button.

Step 4. Display settings

If you want your research paper to be published in a certain group of the HED Club, select it from the proposed list. The list displays all the groups you are a member of (if any).

You can make your publication available for comments by all registered site users or only by members of the group where your content will be published. To do this, select an appropriate option in the «Comments» section.

If you had previously registered for any contest, complete Step 5 – Participation in contests. Here you can choose a contest for which you would like to send your content. If you do not want your content to participate in any contest, just press «Publish» button.

If you have not registered for any contest,  «Publish» button will be available just after Step 4 has been completed.

How to create a discussion? Back to top

To create a new discussion, you must visit the corresponding site section and click the «Create a discussion» link.

Enter the discussion topic or the question which must be no longer than 255 characters (including spaces) in the «Title» field.

If necessary, you can write a more detailed question or add a specification in the Text field.

In the lines for topics you must specify the key words related to the discussion topic. You can select topics from the drop-down list.
