What is a SelectedWorks site?

SelectedWorks is a companion to Scholarly Commons that helps you highlight all of your scholarly activities. The SelectedWorks personal website provides a place to post citations to additional work or material that may not be uploaded full text into Scholarly Commons due to copyright restrictions.

With a SelectedWorks site you can

  • Display a photograph of yourself and a professional brief biography.
  • List your areas of expertise and courses taught.
  • Post your curriculum vitae and contact information.
  • Link to your research posted in Scholarly Commons as well as to material hosted at other institutional repositories.
  • View statistics of how often your work has been viewed.
  • Transfer your SelectedWorks site to another institution if you should ever leave Embry-Riddle.

If you already have a SelectedWorks site, you can affiliate it with Embry-Riddle by adjusting your Author Information found in your SelectedWorks account settings. You will need to be logged into your SelectedWorks account at to do so.
