Academic Profiles

Managing your online presence is important in these days of "just Google it." Below are links to profiles for Librarian Rebecca Hedreen on some of the most common services. Different services track different things, some are connected to each other, and some are editable to a greater extent than others--which can give a different view of the author as a researcher.

While setting up profiles sometimes takes some time, once they are set up they require only occasional review. ORCID is probably the most important, as it is used by funders and journals to distinguish researchers with similar names and to collect the research output of researchers who have published under more than one name.

Google Scholar is the most accessible profile, and so is important to keep active and accurate:

Manage your own citations

Use a citation manager to organize and store citations to your own work so that you can easily and quickly create a bibliography for CVs, bios, and for export to other systems (like Digital Measures). I (Rebecca Hedreen) particularly recommend Zotero, because it exports in many formats, including spreadsheets (CSV/Excel).
