Creating & Maintaining Your Profile

​SelectedWorks profiles are easy to set up and maintain. Simply complete this form or send a current copy of your CV and a recent headshot to and the Georgia Southern Commons Team will create a SelectedWorks profile for you. Contact us anytime to request an update to your existing profile. 

Profile requests are processed on a first-come, first-served basis. Turnaround time may be impacted by current demand for new profiles or profile updates. Please allow three to six months for library personnel to create a new profile.

PlumX Snapshots & Measuring Impact

PlumX Profile

Any faculty member with a SelectedWorks Profile automatically receives a personal PlumX Metrics Snapshot. No maintenance is required on your part; all works included in SelectedWorks are automatically imported into your PlumX Snapshot. Furthermore, all use and downloads, whether they originate in Georgia Southern Commons or SelectedWorks, contribute to your Author Dashboard and PlumX Metrics. PlumX supports reporting for individual faculty members as well as unit-level reporting.

The accuracy and completeness of PlumX metrics is impacted by many factors, including data sources, data quality, and other technological constraints. The library provides these reports for informational purposes only to help identify trends in how your research is being accessed and used.

For more information on PlumX profiles and reports, see here.
