What should I say in my profile?

One of our members asked the following:

"How shall I organize my professional information, in a formal or more unofficial style?"

It's a good question.

You are free to choose how to present information, but my recommendation is to formal but brief, and to emphasize the areas of work that interest you most.

The place to show professional information is in a short biography or curriculum vitae (cv).

On the page for profile settings (in your account after login), there is a simple form for writing a short bio/cv, and you can give it your own title.

At the same time, it is also good to indicate how you would like to use the network - e.g. to:

(i) find research contacts, or

(ii) share interests in discussion, or

(iii) for specific practical purposes related to research communication, e.g. using the services page to offer help or find help.

This kind of information can be shown in your first blog post. Don't forget to add keyword tags to highlight your interests.

The more that can be said about all of these matters in your profile, and in each relevant area of the network, the more likely it is you will find what you are looking for.

Even if you are not really looking for anything specific, a useful connection might be made when someone else finds your profile... if the profile is informative and engaging.
