Open-access institutional repositories like Digital Commons@Georgia Southern and scholarly profile services like SelectedWorks Profiles provide researchers with opportunities to self-archive and distribute their research in new ways that increase access, awareness and impact. When combined with analytical tools like PlumX Profiles, these services help to tell the story of research at Georgia Southern University.
SelectedWorks Profiles feature Georgia Southern faculty members' scholarly information and publications with features not available from other profile services. Works completed while you serve at Georgia Southern are further archived in Digital Commons and are featured in our department and college Faculty Publications and Faculty Bookshelf collections. SelectedWorks profiles are easy to set up and maintain. Send a current copy of your CV and a recent headshot to the Digital Commons Team and we will create a profile for you! Send in your updates anytime, or update your profile yourself.
PlumX profiles gather traditional and non-traditional impact metrics for your work, including citations, usage, captures, and social media mentions. With this data, PlumX provides robust reports, which help you and your academic unit tell the story of your research. Any faculty member with a SelectedWorks Profile automatically receives a personal PlumX profile. PlumX supports individual and unit-level reporting.
