Easily add work to your profile by uploading a file, adding a link, adding metadata, importing works, and selecting from your My SW Drive.
Adding Your Work
- Click on the Works link on your profile
- Click Add Work to select your option (outlined below)
Upload a File
To add a file from your computer or from another online source, including Dropbox, Flickr, Google+, and Picasa, choose Upload a File.
Follow the prompts to select a Type of Work that matches your file, complete all applicable fields on the Details page (required field marked with a red * asterisk), and click Add to Profile.
Tips: A thumbnail image for the Card View is automatically generated from the first page of each uploaded work. You can replace by uploading an image of your choosing, if preferred.
Cover pages are also automatically created for all PDFs and include author information and links to your profile to help increase traffic. Additionally, if you upload an MS Word file, we convert it to PDF for you.
Display Categories help organize your Works tab. You must choose at least one per work. If more than one category is chosen, the work will appear under each category you selected. Display Categories and their descriptions are indexed within Google and other major search engines along with the profile and works. By creating Display Categories and descriptions that are unique to the profile and faculty’s discipline, faculty can increase their discoverability and drive more traffic to their profile and works.
Add a Link and Add Metadata
When uploading a link to your work, click Add a Link from the Add Work menu, and provide the full URL address (e.g., http://www.website.com). Use Add Metadata to upload your content details only (i.e., title, abstract, etc.). Whether you upload a link or metadata only, you will be prompted to select a Type of Work and complete the Details page.
Select Import Works to retrieve all works in the bepress system associated with your name and email address, and automatically bring them into your profile. You may repeat this periodically to gather works posted in the future.
If you have multiple email addresses or name aliases, see the Account Settings section under Managing Account and Access Settings below, to help ensure all of your works appear when using this feature.
