MTMT – frequently asked questions


How do I register?

Click on the registration button and fill in the webform. At “Institute”, please select the applicable organization unit of CUB. At Unique Name Suffix, you have to indicate the name of the field you are working in. You have to confirm the registration through an automatically generated message. Your registration will be approved within two workdays, after which you will be able to enter the database.

How are publication data entered into MTMT?

Based on the applicable Provisions of the Rector 3/2020 (X.6), the Research Support Librarians assigned by the Library will perform the data upload of publications that can be considered from the aspect of scientific performance into the MTMT database. Authors may submit their data upload requests on the relevant webform.

What does the librarian record? What does the author record?

The Rector’s Provisions define the librarian’s task as the following: making entries of scholarly, educational books, book chapters, journal articles, research reports. This does not apply to abstracts, regardless of what MTMT category they fall into. The librarian’s tasks do not include the uploading of data generating from works of public interest, popular science and non-classified nature, Conference Proceedings/Conference paper or the data of publications categorized as Other. Recording these is the authors’ task (if they consider the uploading of these publications important).

Whom do I turn to for help regarding publication data upload?

We offer MTMT group consultations in the Library, where we present the way to record publication data into the database. If the group consultations do not fit into your schedule, you can book a personal consultation appointment. Some material is available on the Library’s website in the MTMT menu for your assistance, and you can check the short guide for authors.

If I have co-author publications, will I find them in MTMT?

You will, if the co-author has already recorded the publication data into MTMT.

  • Entering the database, it is advisable to search the title in your publications. If the co-author has already entered the publication data and you have been assigned as an author, the given publication will appear in the list.
  • If you cannot find your publication there, then you have to run a search in “My possible publications created by my co-authors” on the left side, and check the list.
  • In case the publication is still not found, it is worth running a search in ‘My possible other publications in citations”.
  • If the searched publication is found as a result of one of the latter searches, then you can launch the author assigning process by clicking “Authors”.
After publications are recorded into MTMT by the authors, who makes them public?

The authors do, after recording and saving the data. By making them public, the author acknowledges the correctness of the data, and the publication data will appear on the MTMT public interface as well.

What are the levels of publication data checking?

First comes the public level, which is accomplished by the author after recording the data.
The second level is “admin approved”, which means, a librarian (an MTMT administrator) formally checks the entered data.
Third is the level of “validated”, when the librarian compares the data entered into MTMT with data contained in other databases, or the data shown on the document.
The fourth level is that of “authenticated”, which refers to the comparison with the original document, the full text.
The verified and authenticated publication can be considered checked.

Can a thesis or a conference proceeding be recorded into MTMT?

We do not recommend the entering of these, as they are not included in the scientific performance.
Technically, there is an opportunity to record them as Other, by choosing the proper category. In the case of a thesis or conference presentations, choose Miscellaneous (as type) and Not classified as subtype.

Can I delete my recorded publications from MTMT?

Yes, if it has not been made public. Afterwards, you can turn to the librarians for help.

For how long can I edit the data of my recorded publications?

For 90 days after recording the data, the author can edit the publications assigned to their name. If an admin approves or validates a publication within 90 days following its recording, then the author can no longer edit it. In this case, the librarians can help.

Can I upload the full text of my publication into MTMT?

No, but a link or an identifier pointing to the full text in the description can be used when you record the publication data. The full text can be uploaded to the Corvinus Research Repositiry. To upload into the repository, you will find further help in the material “Uploading full text to Corvinus Research through MTMT”.

The peer-reviewed journal articles are not shown at the right place in my Summary table. Why is that?

This happens when the proofread status of the journal is not set in the MTMT yet. This status is set by MTMT’s central administrators based on the following:
the journal is indexed by WoS, SCOPUS, PubMed;
  1. it is featured in the SCImago database and has an SJR value
  2. it is featured in the ERIH and/or the ERIH Plus list
  3. it is featured in DOAJ
  4. it is proofread by Ulrich’ s and the journal’s website, and a major database indexes it
  5. it is featured in the MTA class list.
How can I download my full publication list?

You can do it by clicking the download icon on the public interface.
If logged in, find Templates within the Reports and the Templates menu on the MTMT authors’ page. Click on “Publication list for author”. The list can be downloaded in pdf or word.
For downloading the publication list, you will find further help in Operations on the records/download.

How can I download my Summary table?

On the public interface, after selecting Summary table, click download.
If logged in, you can also do it on the MTMT authors page, selecting Templates in the menu Reports and templates, then clicking Summary table for author, where pdf or word formats are available. Also here, you can download the Summary table of the appropriate MTA HAS Section.
For downloading the science metrics chart, you will find further help in Operations on the records/download.

How can I create selected lists from my publications?

After logging into MTMT, open your publication list by selecting All my pubs, then select the publications you want to include in your list by clicking them. Then, choose the List button from the upper menu. A menu will open to help you create a new list, and here you can also add new publications to the already existing lists, or even delete publications from a list.
You will find more help regarding selection lists in Creating a list of selected publications.

How are citations placed into MTMT?

In every quarter, librarians check the citations referring to the authors’ publications from WoS and Scopus, and upload them into MTMT.
Searching for references in other sources and the uploading of these are done by the author. This can happen manually or by importing from a database.
As a first step, you should always check if a certain reference can already be found in the database. If it can, then you have to select it from the list, and it has to be marked as dependent or independent reference. Finally, the generated citation relation record has to be made public.
If the reference cannot be found in MTMT and it is entered as new into the database, then both the generated citation reference and citation relation record have to be made public.

What is a dependent reference?

If there is at least one common author between the cited and the citing work, it qualifies as a dependent reference.

Is there an automatic reference upload into MTMT?

Yes, from Web of Science periodically, only at those publications that have WoS identifiers.

Can I record theses and dissertations as references to my publications?

It is possible, however, not recommended. These references are not considered from the aspect of scientific performance.
