This guide explains how to edit your profile information within ResearchNow.
Changes you make to your profile appear in the ResearchNow Portal, where your profile is made available to public view.
You can progressively add sections to your profile, but nothing is saved until you select Save in the Person window footer.
If you use more than one publishing name, add this to your profile as it will assist in more accurately associating you with publications that are automatically harvested by ResearchNow.
Titles, such as academic degrees, are displayed on the public portal in the order they are entered.
If you have a Scopus ID, add this to your profile as it assists ResearchNow in harvesting your publications from Scopus.
You can add a small photo (also known as an avatar) to your profile; this will be visible on the ResearchNow Portal.
You can describe your research by entering free-text.
A field of research is one of a pre-determined set of disciplines available in ResearchNow. You can only choose a Field of Research (FOR), not specify one yourself.
You can tag your profile on the ResearchNow Portal with keywords from a predefined list, or by using free keywords you specify on the spot.
You can choose to publish your profile publicly, restrict it to be on-campus, or restricted to just users of ResearchNow. Set the visibility of your profile on the ResearchNow Portal.
To see the changes you have just made, you view your profile on the ResearchNow Portal.
Selecting the (i) information button next to section headings in a window provides useful help about the functions described in the section.
Any created item can be edited or deleted by selecting the Edit or minus (-) buttons to the right. If there are multiple entries, as for example with Research interests or Fields of research, you can re-order them by using the up and down arrows next to Edit.
If any change is made in your profile, do not forget to Select Save (at the bottom of the pop-up window). Create will create the new record but not save it. Changes will not be saved if you close the page without Selecting Save.
Any information entered for the profile photo, links, or profile information is shown in your profile on the public portal, unless you mark the information as Private.
Academic qualifications appear on your profile chronologically by the start date at the organisation, or by the name of the organisation alphabetically if no start date is entered.
You can also create or link your ORCID to ResearchNow; refer to the quick reference guide Create, add, and link your ORCID.
Data in ResearchNow has been migrated over from the legacy ResearchMaster system, and may not be 100% accurate. The data is being cleansed, but incorrect data still exists and we request that you bring any errors you note (eg in your Flinders work history, or external organisation names) to the attention of the ResearchNow Support team.
