Editing Your Research Interests

Last Updated: Jul 06, 2017 02:52PM PDT

The research interests that you attach to your paper allow it to be shown outside of your profile. Your paper will appear in any searches for that particular research interest in the "documents" section (more about this here), and may appear in the newsfeeds of other users who share the research interests you have tagged.

First, go to your profile. Here's how to get there.

The research interests you attach to your paper can be viewed on your profile by selecting "More" under the title of your paper.
There, you'll see the first three or four research interests attached to your paper.

If you want to see the full collection of research interests, click the "and more" after the last research interest to open a dropdown list of all the research interests added to the paper. 

To modify the research interests on your paper after you have uploaded it, click "Edit" under the name of the paper. Scroll down to where the research interests of your document appear. 

In the research interest box, begin writing your research interest. If your research interest appears, click it.

If it does not exist, write out the whole research interest, then click it when you're done. 

To delete research interests, click the "X" next to the research interest you'd like to remove. 

You can also rearrange the order of your research interests. To do this, click and drag the research interests until they appear in your preferred order. The first few research interests will show up under your abstract and in your profile; any remaining interests can be viewed by clicking the "more" link after the research interests.  

When you're finished, click "Save" in the top right-hand corner! 

Q: I get a "Something went wrong!" error message.
