Researcher Gallery

Build your online scholarly presence using the Researcher Gallery with Research Gallery. Scholars can create their own search engine optimized website in minutes, build a network of colleagues who follow their work, and submit papers directly to the repository. Faculty and graduate students can be sure their work gets into the hands of interested colleagues. Readers can sign up for email alerts and RSS feeds for any scholar page to be notified of updates and new work. Content uploaded to Researcher Gallery sites is indexed in Google Scholar and Google for maximum discoverability and impact. These sites quickly become one of the top results for Google searches of the scholar’s name. Users receive regular readership reports to track how many people are viewing and downloading their work, and who has signed up for their email alerts.
