Scholars@TAMU is a profile system that hosts searchable expertise for faculty and TAMU organizations by gathering data from institution-level/enterprise systems, publicly available research data (e.g., grants and publications), and other authoritative sources. The data is compiled into a profile that you can edit to best represent your scholarship and expertise. This system helps to:
- Improve the discoverability of scholarly expertise,
- Enhance the scholarly identity of researchers and
- Facilitate new research collaborations.
- Benefits for Administrators
- Benefits for Faculty
