Update the Profile URL

The Scholars@Duke profile URLs can be customized to make it easier to remember and share.

  1. On the Profile Manager home page, click the Update Profile URL button.
  2. Edit the name alias in the edit box. Only the name alias can be edited; the URL must begin with: https://scholars.duke.edu/person/
  3. Click Save to save your changes or Cancel to exit without saving.

Each Scholars@Duke profile is identified using a default URI, seen at the bottom of a browser window while hovering over the Embed Profile Data button. For example, “scholars.duke.edu/individual/per5057520” is a default URI. The default URI cannot be changed and is a persistent identifier for your Scholars profile.

Note: Changing your profile URL will break any links to your profile that you may have shared previously or that exist on external websites. Be mindful about changing your profile URL too often.
