Google Scholar Profiles

Google Scholar Logo

Google Scholar Profiles provide a simple way for authors to showcase their academic publications. You can check who is citing your articles, graph citations over time, and compute several citation metrics. You can also make your profile public, so that it may appear in Google Scholar results when people search for your name

How do I setup a Google Scholar Profile?

Google Scholar Profiles are quick to setup and simple to maintain.

Step 1 - Sign into your Google account or create one if you don't yet have one.

Step 2 - Open the Scholar profile sign up form, confirm the spelling of your name, enter your affiliation, interests, etc. We recommend that you also enter your university email address; this would make your profile eligible for inclusion in Google Scholar search results.

Step 3 - On the next page, you'll see groups of articles written by people with names similar to yours. Add all articles that you have written

Step 4 - Once you're done with adding articles, it will ask you what to do when the article data changes in Google Scholar. You can either have the updates applied to your profile automatically, or you can choose to review them beforehand.

Step 5 - Finally, you will see your profile. This is a good time to add a few finishing touches - upload your professional looking photo, visit your university email inbox and click on the verification link, double check the list of articles, and, once you're completely satisfied, make your profile public. Voila - it's now eligible to appear in Google Scholar when someone searches for your name!
