Author profiles & identities

Use author profiles to show your affiliation, scholarly outputs (publications) and research activities.

An accurate, public author profile:

  • increases the visibility of your publications
  • supports your grant applications and promotion
  • allows for easier collation of your publications and citation-based metrics.

Check your author profile:

  • Is it easy to find?
  • Is it up to date?
  • If a potential collaborator viewed your profile, would you be happy with what they found?

Use this table to review and update your author profiles. Talk to the Subject Librarian for your faculty for further assistance.
