How research profiles are populated

They use readily available Scopus publication data as well as funded grant information from OSP’s database to create a “fingerprint” of a researcher’s subject expertise. This fingerprint is continuously and automatically updated as publications enter the Scopus database, which means very little, if any, manual maintenance is required to retain a current and accurate research profile. Profiled researchers or scholars can add, edit, or delete research interests and keywords they are associated with by logging into their personal profiles.
