About Researcher Profiles: Welcome

This guide for faculty will explain what a Researcher Profile in RDW is and how to request one.


Researcher Profiles

Researcher Profiles are a free service of Rowan University Libraries hosted on the Rowan Digital Works Selected Works Author Gallery

Full-time and clinical faculty of Rowan University are eligible for a Researcher Profile which highlights your research and publications. Profiles are visible to the world and help promote your research to funders, collaborators, and administrators. 

Your profile will be created on the Selected Works platform by a librarian from your campus library using the information you provide. Please select the appropriate form below to request a profile:


Will all the publications I provide for my Researcher Profile be deposited in Rowan Digital Works?

All your publications will be displayed on your profile, but only Open Access publications are deposited in the Faculty Scholarship section of our institutional repository, Rowan Digital Works. Publishers hold copyright to publications that are not designated Open Access, and restrict usage to subscribers. 

Will my CV be visible to the world on my profile?

If you provide a CV, users will be able to view and download it from your profile. Make sure to remove all personal information (home address, personal email, etc.).

How do I update my profile when I publish new work?

Contact us at if you need an immediate profile update. Otherwise, we will review and update existing profiles annually using the platform's web harvesting tool.

Is the Researcher Profile system related to Research With NJ?

No, they are separate systems. Researcher Profiles are part of Rowan Digital Works, Rowan University's institutional repository created by the University Libraries, and Research with NJ is a state program that Rowan University participates in.
