SelectedWorks How-to Guide:

SelectedWorks is an optional service that enables PSU Faculty and staff to create a personalized research profile. The profile allows scholars to manage a public record of scholarly publications, presentations, and biographical information, such as research interests, grants, affiliations, and curriculum. Once created, an author’s SelectedWorks profile exists in perpetuity, regardless of PSU affiliation. All content in SelectedWorks is optimized for discovery in Google and Google Scholar and is included in the University Expert Gallery.
