Error in Appended TEX file containing List of Publications

To my thesis, I want to add a separate file containing my List of Publications. I have named it as Publications.tex and stored in a separate folder. I called this Publications.tex file in my main thesis.tex file. It is giving error related to three publication texts. Interestingly, it shows no error for other publications that are having same format publication texts. Further, I am attaching the PDF screen shot and TEX file named 'Publications', log file for your ready reference. Could you please help me remove the error text in the file.

The code I used to add this new file (name: publications) into my thesis file is given below. I think the code is correct and has no errors. The problem is the way the publications are mentioned in the file:
`....\newpage\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{List of Publications}\chapter*{\huge{List of Publications}}\thispagestyle{plain}\input{Publications/Publications} `

The errors look like this, from the .log file:

`! Package inputenc Error: Unicode char ﬁ (U+FB01)(inputenc)                not set up for use with LaTeX. l.19 ...nd G.

The reason is that in your Publications.tex there are ligatures, in this case it's the Unicode symbol ﬁ that stands for fi (`fi`). This can happen if you copied text from somewhere. Either search and replace those ligatures with an editor, or set up the character by

`\DeclareUnicodeCharacter{FB01}{fi}`

Excellent. It worked. Please, find the screen shot.

I have entered the code in Preamble and here is the result.
