Clean up your Google Scholar Profile data

scholar_logo_30dpIf you set up your Google Scholar Account to “automatically update the list of articles in my profile” there is the real risk that your profile may include papers you have not authored. It is therefore highly advisable to clean up or edit your profile by:

  1. Clicking on the title of each offending article by checking the box found next to the article title
  2. Then clicking the trashcan/“Delete” button

Optionally, consider changing article update setting from “automatically update the list of articles in my profile”  (which is normally the default setting) to “Don’t automatically update my profile.” The later option gives you the opportunity to vet the suggested articles before adding them to your profile.
