Southern Cross Researcher Profiles
Research Portal and Profiles
Southern Cross University's institutional repository can be found here: Southern Cross Research Portal.
The Research Portal provides a platform to showcase the research of Southern Cross University researchers and, where possible, provide Open Access to publications. It replaces the previous ePublications@SCU platform.
Included in the repository are our Southern Cross Researcher Profiles. Any current research staff, adjunct, emeritus or postgraduate research student can request a profile.
If you'd like to know more, please email ResearchPortal@scu.edu.au.
Managing your Researcher Profile page
If you are research-active you should automatically have a profile that you can access and update via the Southern Cross Researcher Profile page.
Sign in at the top right corner of the screen.
Your profile will not be public until you request it. To make yours public, first, you will need to log in to review the content and edit as necessary. If you require assistance updating your Researcher Profile, use the Researcher Profile Tutorial for guidance or contact ResearchPortal@scu.edu.au.

In a future version of the Researcher Profiles we will have an Achievements tab that lists honours and awards.
Please email ResearchPortal@scu.edu.au with any organisation memberships and editorial/board positions you hold so we can pre-populate these fields in preparation for the upcoming Achievements tab. In the meantime, you can add notable items in your biography.
Honorary positions, e.g. adjunct status at another institution should be entered as Affiliations.
Southern Cross University Library no longer has bepress Selected Works pages.
There is no need to add your Publons ID, as your ResearcherID is connected to Publons.
