Update my profile

  • Completing your profile, and later updating

    1. When you first log in, after joining, you will be shown your profile settings page. This is where details can be added to create a full public profile.

    Only three fields are required - name, location, and work interests. Other details can be added using the optional fields.

    2. Later, when you log in, the first page you see should be your public profile page, with a cog icon at upper right.

    To update your profile details, use the Cog button to reach your profile settings page.

    3. Your profile name in the main menu will always be visible, wherever you go within the Research Cooperative network after logging in. Wherever you are looking in the network, you can use the main menu tab to get back to your own profile. 

    4. There is also an "Account settings" sub-tab under your profile name in the main menu (put your cursor over the main menu tab to see the dropdown menu). This leads to pages where you can edit your private Account settings, and your public Profile settings.

    The menu on your settings page should look like this:

  • Members who joined before year 2017 are our "Founding members"

    If you are a founding member, and have not updated your account details since after 2016, please see our information on how to set up a new password or new account ("Founding member" info).

  • Please keep your profile page public (it can be private if necessary)

    Your profile page can be made public or not public by selecting who can see the page. Look for the check box on your profile settings page. (Network moderators and admin can always see the page).

    You might want to make your profile page private while experimenting with the look and content, or if you are not available for contact temporarily.

    In general, profiles in our network should be public as they are the basis on which services and offered or requested.

    The information on your profile page is automatically indexed for searching inside the site.

    Whether or not other members can search and find your page will depend on what information you add to the required and optional fields.

    There are advantages for both the researcher and the service provider when both have a public profile in the network: 

    (1) Editors or translators like to know something about the interests of potential customers, in order to judge whether to accept a request, or offer a service.

    (2) Authors like to know something about the work history of an editor, translator, or illustrator before accepting an offer, or asking a particular person for help.

    With public profiles, members can more easily establish mutually-beneficial working relationships.

  • Optional and Required Fields for Profile Page

    Optional and Required Fields for Profile Page

    The two images at left and below show the profile fields that can be used to present public information on your profile.

    Only three fields are "required" and need to be filled in:  Name, Location, and Work interests (see upper part of the form). 

    These fields are enough for others to know something about you. The fields can be updated at any time, and you can also chose to make your profile private if you wish to check the result yourself before making it public.

    Please do not show:

    (1) Your exact email address, as it may be recorded by internet robots that collect personal data for spam services. An email address can be disguised by replacing dots with the word dot and putting brackets or spaces between parts of the address.

    (2) Your personal home address unless this is a postal address you use for work purposes.

  • Further optional fields on the profile page

    Further optional fields on the profile page

    See notes above.

    The "biography" section is displayed at the top of your profile page and be shown with or without its own title. This can be used for a personal biography, or for the description of a company if you have joined to promote the work of your company.

    Your "Profile quota" setting is determined automatically ("New Regular Member" for new members, and "Regular Member" for founding members from the early years of our network). The "Quota" determines what functions you have access to throughout the network. An Administrator can change your Quota to "Publisher" or "Shopfront", on request.
