How to set up a Google Scholar Profile:
Full instructions can be found on the Google Scholar website but basic instructions are below.
- Go to Google Scholar at https://scholar.google.com/ Click on My Citations and log into your Google account. If you don't have a Google account, click "Create account" below the login box.
- Fill in the fields required for setting up your profile. One of the steps is to "add all articles." You will be allowed to select articles to move to your profile. If some of your articles are missing, click "search articles" to find them one at a time. After selecting articles to populate your profile, you will be given the option of automatic updates in the future or to review articles before they are imported to your profile. If an automatic update selects an incorrect article, it can be removed later.
- To set the automatic update feature, from your citation page, select "more" (to the right of the Add button). Select Profile Update, click Automatically update and save your settings.
- Add remaining information as you'd like - photo, university email address, etc. If you'd like to make it public, be sure to activate this feature. If it is not made public, your profile cannot be found on Google Scholar.
