Getting a profile
Who is considered an active researcher?
Profiles are automatically created for active researchers at the University. An active researcher is defined as someone who is the following:
- A current member of staff;
- Is not a casual staff member;
- Holds a position that is classified as academic (AC) or research (RS), except general research staff (award type of RESG); and
- Has at least one visible (non-thesis) publication in the JCU publication repository,
- Note: A thesis is an unpublished work and will not be included in the set of publications shown.
If you need to deposit publications into ResearchOnline@JCU, you, or someone on your behalf, can do so online.
For researchers that hold adjunct positions, a profile is created for those that:
- Have at least one visible (non-thesis) publication in the JCU publication repository, ResearchOnline@JCU; and
- Are a principal investigator of a current grant, or currently supervising a :abbr:`HDR (Higher Degree Research)` student, or have at least 5 publications in the last 5 years where at least one paper is co-authored with a current (non-adjunct) JCU researcher.
This profile is initially hidden, so in order to be seen publicly you will need to :ref:`edit your profile <edit-profile>`.
Profiles are also created for research managers (such as College Deans, Pro-Vice Chancellors and Academic Deans of Research) and Emeritus Professors, provided one visible publication is stored in ResearchOnline@JCU.
