Faculty are encouraged to make use of several tools to ensure that their scholarship and citations are being accurately and completely captured across different platforms. The LRC can assist you with setting up and managing your author profiles.
Note: All authors who have posted papers on SSRN have an Author Profile page automatically created.
An Author Profile page lists all the working papers, conference papers, accepted not-yet-published manuscripts and publisher approved versions of record uploaded to SSRN by an author (or on behalf of an author). Once the profile is created, you can add a profile picture, contact information, a website and even a note about current areas of research.
Note: HeinOnline automatically creates an author profile when an individual is identified and attributed to a work in the platform. Once it is created, the LRC can assist with adding and updating the information in the profile.
Once the profile is created, the profile can be fleshed out to include more information.
Note: Faculty authors must create and manage their own profiles in Google. Google does not allow authors to select a trusted individual to help curate these profiles.
Once your profile is created, Google Scholar will present you with a list of publications that it thinks were written by you. You will be able to review, merge, or remove from this list, and you can indicate whether you want Google Scholar to automatically add publications to your profile as it finds them. You can also opt to have publications emailed to you for review before they get added to your profile.
Note: Faculty authors must create their own ORCID identifications, but may add a librarian as a "trusted individual" to assist in updating profiles.
ORCID is a persistent and unique digital identifier which enables researchers and institutions to maintain a consolidated record of all of their research activities.
If you would like the LRC to help manage your ORCID account, follow these steps:
This will allow the Digital Resources Librarian to help track your publications and ensure that your profile contains complete and accurate information.
