Symplectic gathers data from a variety of sources to create records in your profile. The way data is presented varies between these sources, and so if your publication has multiple data sources, it may be formatted differently.
You can choose the preferred source you would like to be displayed on your profile under the Data Sources tab with the icon. Alternatively you can create your own manual record if you wish to include additional data for example.
1) Click on the Data Sources tab for the relevant publication.
2) Click on the set preferred icon, shaped like a star, next to the relevant record in that tab. When selected, the star will change colour from white to yellow. This will select the preferred source and set of details to show on your profile.
