Claim your Google Scholar profile in order to increase your scholarly search engine optimization (aka “googleability”), more easily share your publications with new readers, and discover new citations to your work from across the scholarly web.
If you have already been publishing, Google has likely been indexing your work for some time as part of their mission as a scholarly search engine. So, this step is pretty easy, compared to what it takes to get your work on sites like Academia.edu or ResearchGate.
Take this opportunity to review your profile for accuracy, check for missing publications, and add nontraditional works (e.g., a poster, thesis, data set, conference talk, or patent).
