My department already has a profile page for me, why does this one exist as well?

Many departments around the Lab have created their own web-presence, but there has never been a Lab-wide web present for researchers. As a result, very many researchers do not have profiles and many of the fantastic accomplishments of our scientists are not visible to the public. This site can exist in conjunction with division-level sites. Over time, some divisions may also decide that they do not need to maintain a site of their own if this one can adequately cover the task.


I don't want a public profile. How do I take it down?

Generally, our policy is that every researcher will have a profile page and exceptions will only be granted in special individual circumstances in which HR has deemed it appropriate to suppress your information.


I am not a researcher, but there's a profile page for me. How do I get it removed?

Our process for identifying researchers is imperfect. If you are not a researcher and do not publish, please notify publications@lbl.gov and we will shut down both your Publications Management System account and your profile page.


I am a researcher, but there is no profile page for me. How do I get one created?

Email publications@lbl.gov to have your Publications Management Account and profile pages enables.


My profile shows few or none of my publications?

The profile pages pull publication information from the Publications Management System. If you have not logged into that system and are not curating your work, then your profile will certainly be incomplete or even empty. Claiming or entering your publications into the Publications Management System is already a Lab requirement, so this should not be additional effort.


My profile shows publications I'd rather not include.

It is possible to mark publications "invisible" in the Publications Management System and they will not appear in your public profile.


I would like to add a publication directly to my profile, without dealing with the Publications Management System

This is not possible. Claim or enter the work into the Publications Management System.


How do I customize my profile?

Limited customization is available by way of entering additional biographical information (including a photograph) into the Publications Management System. See more information here.


I notice publications are listed in reverse time order. Is there a way to highlight or "favorite" a publication.

Unfortunately, no. Though the Publications Management System has such a feature, it does not translate into the profile system.
