Symplectic Elements new version release

Elements, City’s publications database will be updated on 6th July 2021.

While its look has changed, the core functionalities stay the same: you can still upload your publication, claim the articles and chapters you have written, write a short biography about your academic achievements and so on.

While the majority of functions stay the same, Symplectic has made some changes to improve the system.
