We are excited to announce an upgrade to SelectedWorks profile pages!
A new card view has been implemented that provides a preview of content. A reader can easily scroll through the new SelectedWorks and instantly get an idea of the work each author has done. Each item is displayed upfront, eliminating the “view more” button. Every file format is supported. This means any work done by you can be uploaded into your SelectedWorks profile. Think beyond articles and books to anything from video, audio, data, and more!
UPDATED AUTHOR TOOLS
The new SelectedWorks delivers new author tools that make measuring your impact simple. The author dashboard now comes with a map that displays where downloads are happening. You are able to zoom in on almost exact locations of downloads. Additionally, each pinpoint on the map displays the number of downloads. Clicking on these points provides the title being downloaded. The author dashboard also offers a handful of other metrics, including which countries and institutions are downloading your work, which sites readers are using to find your work, a timeline of your download history, and a list of your top downloaded items.
The new SelectedWorks makes it even easier for readers to follow your work. The “Follow” button is now far more prominent at the top of the page. Also, authors can take control of their SelectedWorks profile. The new design allows for easy editing through WYSIWIGs.
Remember, your SelectedWorks profile is already Search Engine Optimized to ensure maximum exposure to your work. The upgraded look will showcase your work with a contemporary feel, an easy-to-read card layout, and richer metrics.
