Create a Virginia Tech Experts Profile to Share Your Scholarship and Attract Collaborators

Virginia Tech Experts (experts.vt.edu) is a new searchable profile system where researchers, scholars, educators at Virginia Tech with a Virginia Tech Elements account can choose to provide a public facing view of scholarly and creative works, research interests, teaching, professional activities; interest in collaboration, mentorship, graduate student supervision, and more. Join this hands-on workshop to create your profile!

In this workshop you will have time to work on and learn how to:

  • Share a biography, research interests summary, and/or teaching statement
  • Highlight your areas of expertise and interest with keywords or tags 
  • Display your availability to: collaborate, supervise a graduate student, be a panelist, respond to media inquiries, and more 
  • Hide information you do not wish to display on your public Experts profile
  • Feature selected scholarly and creative works and activities on Experts
  • Make full text of your articles, chapters, and other scholarly and creative works more accessible via direct links to publisher sites and PDF downloads via versions in, VTechWorks, the institutional repository (open to anyone without subscription)
  • Set your profile to ‘public’ to display in Virginia Tech Experts
