Editing Your Profile

On signing up, an administrator will create a basic profile for you. You may edit this profile to include information on your research interests, key publications or websites. 

NOTE: to change the departmental affiliation(s) listed in your profile, or the Research Themes you are interested in, please the site administrator.

Logging in

Log in using the grey button in the top right of the site, authenticating using Raven. 

When you login, you will first see an 'Attribute Release' which contains information fed from the central University lookup database. This information is not displayed on the public website and is only used for authentication (click OK to proceed).

In some cases, information in the Attribute Release may be out of date. This can be remedied by visiting and editing your details there. 

Once logged in, you can navigate to your profile in the Research Directory (or search using the box in the top right hand corner).



Click on 'Edit' in the green bar at the top of your profile entry, underneath your name (this bar is only visible when you are logged in).

Of the eight tabs displayed, three are relevant: 

Basic Information

Access Account ID

This must be your email address in the form

This is not the same as the contact email displayed on your profile

Changing the email address that is displayed on your profile must be done in the 'Contact Information' tab (see below).

Profile Picture

When uploading an image to your profile, any size can be used. The image will be scaled to 200 x 250px size when used on the profile page, or proportionately if it is a different ratio. On the gallery view the image is scaled to 100px wide - there is no height restriction in the scaling on this view. 

The image should be a standard .jpeg, in rgb mode, or a .png - preferably with a resolution of 72dpm.
