Your main account settings tab will provide you ways to change the general information about your Academia account on profile. To head there, hover over your profile photo in the top right-hand corner, then select "Account Settings."
There are three separate sections that you can change from your main tab.
Here you can show the name you would like to display on Academia. The name that you put here will show up not only on your profile, but also next to any papers you have co-authored. Please be aware that you can currently only enter single initials (no periods) in the middle initial field. You can also change this information from your edit profile dropdown.
You can also use this area to add or remove additional names you would like us to search for Mentions of you for.
If you would like to log in with an email address and password, you can set and change that information here.
Your Profile URL
The first half of your profile URL (http://team.academia.edu/Hannah42) is controlled by your affiliation. The second half (http://team.academia.edu/Hannah42) is controlled here. For example, if you would like your affiliation to read http://team.academia.edu/JQSmith, instead of http://team.academia.edu/JohnSmith40, you could change it here.
Your Time Zone
Change what times are displayed on your profile, so they match your local time.
