Midwifery research database (add/edit entries)

RCM members can use this page to submit research for inclusion in the database, as well as to edit or delete existing entries.

Instructions on how to add, edit and delete entries appear further down this page.

 



Adding new research

As an RCM member you can add new projects to the database. Click on the ‘Add New Record’ button, then complete and save the form. The project will now appear in the list of projects with a status of ‘Draft’.

Please check grammar and spelling prior to uploading information on your project. It may be easiest to do this by pasting it into a Word document and using the spellchecker.

Entries added in this way will not go live until moderated by a research database administrator. Once an entry has been approved the status will change to ‘Live’ and it will be visible to all site visitors.


Editing an existing entry

You can edit projects that you have uploaded. Find the relevant research by using the category drop-down list, keyword text field and ‘Search’ button. An ‘Edit’ link will then appear next to entries you have uploaded. Click on the ‘Edit’ link to access the project details. Make changes as required, then re-save the project details.

The project will now appear in the list of projects with a status of ‘Draft (Live exists)’.
The existing entry (without the changes) will continue to display until the changes have been moderated by a research database administrator. Once the changes have been moderated the status will change to ‘Live’ and the revised version will be visible to all site visitors.


Deleting an entry

You can also delete projects that you have uploaded. Find the relevant research by using the category drop-down list, keyword text field and ‘Search’ button. A checkbox will appear in the ‘Delete’ column next to the entry. Tick the checkbox, then click on the ‘Delete selected’ button’

A confirmation page will appear. Click on the ‘Delete’ button. The entry will be immediately removed from the database (deletion does not require moderation by a database administrator).
