What are Google Scholar Research Profiles?

Create a Google Scholar research profile to track your publications. The library offers guidance on subject specific repositories, academic social networking tactics, impact metrics, and other information that allows you to track and measure your scholarly impact. Find out more from the Scholarly Communication page.

Here are screenshot instructions on how to set up a research profile.

What if I am Asked to Pay for Items?

Some Google Scholar links lead to items on publishers' pay-per-view web sites. Do not pay!
