What is a Google Scholar profile?
Google Scholar allows authors to set up an individual profile.
When Google Scholar finds new citations to your publications they are automatically added to your profile and a range of metrics created.
Please note: Google Scholar citations can be inaccurate and may cite non-academic sources. Some variation may also occur due to the inclusion of poor quality data - such as duplicate records, misspelt citations, and missing authors.
Why create a Google Scholar profile?
- A Google Scholar profile provides an easy way for others to find your research.
- Your list of publications can be updated automatically or can be reviewed and manually updated by you at any time.
- Your profile can be set to ‘public’ so that it appears in Google Scholar results when your name is searched.
- A link to your Google Scholar profile can be added to your ORCID profile.
