UniSC Research Bank - Researcher Profiles

Researcher profiles are part of the UniSC Research Bank and are important in exposing the breadth of UniSC's research expertise. 

Profiles are created and continually updated from information stored in the Research Bank.  This includes publications, datasets, conference proceedings, theses, and NTROs (non-traditional research outputs).  Profiles also include grants, projects, media mentions, and other researcher activities.  They are a one-stop shop for all your researcher information, ranging from your biography and identifiers right through to your latest journal article.

Researcher Profile eligiblity

Researcher profiles are available to the following researchers:

  • Current UniSC staff (academic and professional) with outputs listed in the UniSC Research Bank
  • Current UniSC doctoral students with outputs listed in the UniSC Research Bank.

Creating your Researcher Profile

All researcher profiles are hidden from public view until they are edited.  Once edited, the profile can be publicly available and listed on the UniSC Research Bank Researcher Profiles web page. 

Steps for setting up your profile for the first time:

1. Go to the researcher profiles page.

2. Log in via the 'Sign in' in the top right corner of the screen.

3. You will be directed to a private version of your profile.  Note that it will not yet be publicly viewable.

4. Click the 'Edit profile' button above the image placeholder.  We have created a great tutorial to guide you through the steps in editing your profile.  Some information will already be populated, but enter anything that is missing, in particular researcher identifiers (ORCID, Scopus ID, etc).

NOTE: Phone numbers and addresses are visible on your profile when you are logged in however they will not be visible to other users.

5. To exit 'edit' mode and to check how your profile is looking, click on the drop-down menu in the top right corner, and click on 'Your profile'.

6. Once you are happy with the way your profile looks, you can request to have it published via the link at the top of the page.  This request will be directed to the Library, who will then approve your profile and make it publicly viewable.
