To get started, visit Google Scholar Profile website. If you would like to find step-by-step instructions, click the Setup tab on the left-side menu. See UMD Libraries' Google Profile as an example.


  1. For departmental or research groups profiles, set up a group Gmail account instead of using your personal account. 
  2. You can only add authors who already have a Google Scholar profile set up. If they don't have one, encourage them to create one. Once they have their profiles set up, search for their names on the departmental Google Scholar profile search box located on the top right and click Add co-author.
