Create Your Google Scholar Profile

    Google Scholar (http://scholar.google.com)

    Google Scholar is a popular way to show case your papers and the citations they have received. Google Scholar also calculates a platform-dependent h-index, which many researchers love to track (for better or for worse).

    • Step by Step to Create or Update Google Scholar Profile
    • Google Scholar offers a popular way to create a profile that showcases your own papers and the citations they’ve received. It also calculates a platform-dependent h-index, which many researchers love to track.

    • Step 1: Create Your Basic Profile
    • Log on to scholar.google.com and click the “My Citations” link at the top of the page to get your account setup started. On the first screen, add your affiliation information and university email address, so Google Scholar can confirm your account. Add keywords that are relevant to your research interests, so others can find you when browsing a subject area. Provide a link to your university homepage, if you have one. Click “Next Step,” and–that’s it! Your basic profile is done. Now, let’s add some publications to it.

    • Step 2: Add Publications
    • Google has likely already been indexing your work for some time now as part of their mission as a scholarly search engine. So, search your publication and start adding it into your profile.

    • Step 3: Profile Setting and Make Your Profile Public
    • Your profile is private if you’ve just created it. Change your profile visibility by clicking “Edit” next to “My profile is private” and then selecting “My profile is public” in the drop-down box.
