Online professional profiles constitute easy ways to share and showcase your work and represent a great way to increase your visibility and discoverability. For these profiles to be effective, it is important that scholars take control of the information included and decide on which platforms used by their peers would be most beneficial to build a profile. Some platforms may automatically create a profile for an author while other platforms require that the author creates a profile. Managing online profiles may seem as time consuming but the benefits are worth the effort.
Due to its popularity as a research tool, Google Scholar represents an excellent platform to promote your work. Built on the vast Google data, Google Scholar indexes literature regardless of the source. While one's publications are indexed by default, a Google Scholar Profile is created at the scholar's request. A Google Scholar Profile ensures that all the publications are brought together and correctly assigned to the right author(s), as well as keeps track of citation numbers.
