Creating and Managing Your Academic Profile - Profile Tools


The growth of social media and networked technologies has allowed for new and interactive ways for scholars to circulate their research, expand their scholarly networks, and track their research impact. Understanding how your academic identity and your research outputs (articles, books, patents, conference proceedings, posters, data contributions, videos, blog posts, etc.) are tracked and showcased is a necessary step in framing your online identity.  Claiming and developing an academic profile includes showcasing your research outputs and impacts into a portfolio-like space to provide yourself and others with a picture of your scholarship.

Part 1 of Creating and Managing Your Academic Profile will focus on using academic profile tools to develop your online academic identity.  

In this session, you will:

  • Understand why academic profiles are important in the scholarly publication process for academics/researchers
  • Learning about the connection between academic profiles and impact metrics and rankings
  • Be introduced to a variety of academic profile tools and their benefits and potential risks
  • Examine Google Scholar Citations and Humanities Commons

You will leave with the following outputs:

  • The beginning of a Google Scholar Citations Profile and/or Humanities Commons Profile
