What is my personal website? 

Your personal website is a way to display your academic work without weighing it down with a social network profile. Using a personal website grants you some general features that you can't get anywhere else on Academia. These features include, but aren't limited to: 
  • New website link
  • Customizable header
  • Contact form
  • Downloads without sign-ups
  • A more personal space on the internet
Editing your personal website is extremely easy: all of the information is imported from your Academia profile. To change information on your persona website, simply change information on your Academia profile. 
  • Have a new paper to upload? Simply upload it to Academia and it will show up on your personal website. 
  • Want to add a new grant, book announce, or scholarship? Adding it to your biography on Academia will make it show up on your site. 
  • Have an additional social profile you want to add? Adding it to your social profiles on Academia will make it appear on the "Contact" form on your website.
  • Want to change your personal website profile photo? Change it in your website settings. 

Here's a good example. Here's Richard's biography on Academia:
