DIVISION OF LIBRARY SERVICES Details required First, sign to your Google account, or create one if you don't yet have one. Consider using a personal account ‘…. so that you can keep your profile for as long as you wish’. Once you've signed in to your Google account, the Citations sign up form will ask you to confirm the spelling of your name, and to enter your affiliation, interests, etc. Adding your university address makes your profile eligible for inclusion in Google Scholar search results. On the next page, you'll see groups of articles written by people with names similar to yours. Click "Add all articles" next to each article group that is yours, or "See all articles" to add specific articles from that group. If you don't see your articles in these groups, click "Search articles" to do a regular Google Scholar search, and then add your articles one at a time.
DIVISION OF LIBRARY SERVICES Details required You will be prompted regarding 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. In either case, you can always go to your profile and make changes by hand. Finally, you will see your profile. This is a good time to add a few finishing touches - upload your professional looking photo, check your university account 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.
