This guide is designed to assist you with expanding the impact of your research by developing your researcher profile and explaining how metrics work.

Google Scholar Profile

Google Scholar Profiles provide a simple way for authors to showcase their academic publications. Google Scholar is a great starting point for creating a researcher profile - it's quick to set up and simple to maintain. Google Scholar Profile allows you to:

  • Have your publications in one place;
  • List your interests;
  • See who is citing you;
  • Chart your citations over time;
  • View several citation metrics;
  • Be more visible for researchers/students who don’t have access to other researcher profile systems;
