About this Module

A researcher profile is a professional profile of researcher which showcase the activities related to the research such as publication productivity, conferences, collaborative projects, teaching commitments,  fieldwork, and data collection. A researcher profile will connect you and your research and make your scholarship highly discoverable through many different platforms and systems, as well as help users reach author-specific information more quickly and effectively.

Among the advantages of the researcher profile are:

  • Will make your work discoverable by others
  • Connects your research to you throughout your career, no matter how your name appears in the publication
  • Distinguishes you from other researchers with similar names
  • Minimizes the time you spend filling out forms when submitting research or applying for grants;
  • Is being required by major journal publishers and funders.
