Manage Your Research Identity: How to sign up for a Google Scholar profile?

You may create a free Google Scholar profile by following the below steps:

  • On the Profile page, you will be prompted to fill out some basic information about yourself such as your name, affiliation, email, areas of interest, and homepage (which is optional). In the "Email for verification" box, enter your AUB email address. Before proceeding, check your AUB inbox for an email from Google asking you to verify your AUB email. Click on the "Verify email address" button. Go back to the Google Scholar page and click on "Next step".

  • The next Articles page will give you a list of documents. Select the relevant documents that belong to you by checking the boxes next to them.

  • On the Settings page, under Article updates, if your name is unique select "Apply updates automatically". If your name is common, it is preferable to select "Email me updates for review" so you can check the documents manually before adding them to your Google Scholar profile (otherwise incorrect publications might be added automatically to your profile). Under "Profile visibility", make your profile public so your name can appear under AUB's list of profiles.
