Directory listings, profile pages, Scripps Scholars, and lab websites
Scripps Oceanography offers a variety of online mechanisms to help faculty, staff, and students communicate, collaborate, and share their knowledge or research.
The online directory is the starting place to find anyone at Scripps, providing email addresses, telephone numbers, office locations, and affiliations.
You will show up in the directory when your basic information is entered in Scripps's People database by Human Resources or your business office. All of your contact information is connected through your email address and Active Directory login.
Information for directory is pulled from both the People database and the UC San Diego Faculty/Staff Directory. Your entry on the UC San Diego site links to a form where you can submit changes to basic information such as the spelling of your name, nickname, phone number, lab website, and location.
Don't want your formal first name to be what displays everywhere? If you specify a nickname for the UCSD directory, that nickname will replace your first name in Scripps's listings.
If you teach, study, or work at Scripps Oceanography, you will likely also have a profile page on the website. By default, these pages only include the same contact information as your directory listing, but you can request additions and updates to your Scripps profile by submitting a photo, research interests, degree information, a brief bio, and link to an external website.
- If you have a profile page, your name will link to it from your directory listing. Your profile page also can be found through the website’s search engine and external search engines.
- If you are a researcher with a Scripps Scholars site, it's expected that your research interests, education, and similar information will be maintained on your Scholars page rather than your profile page.
Your profile is also used to supply information to various parts of the Scripps website:
- Researchers and students whose profiles are tagged with Integrated Research Themes (16 broad topics) have their names displayed on the appropriate Integrated Research Theme pages, along with recent updates from the Communications office.
- Researchers and students whose profiles are tagged with Research Topics (75 more detailed fields) will be displayed on search results pages for those topics.
- Listings on the Leadership page link to your profile pages.
- If you teach, your name on the Curricular Group members lists or Courses list will link to your Scholars site (if available) or your profile page.
- If you are a Principal Investigator for a center, lab, program, or group, your site's entry on the Centers, Labs, Programs, and Groups page will also link to your profile.
Faculty members, postdocs, visiting scholars, and graduate students also can have Scripps Scholar sites, which are expanded profiles which can include biographies, lists of publications and classes taught, and optional features such as blogs. Scholars sites are intended to highlight personal academic work.
- If you have a (published) Scholars site, there will be a link to it on your directory entry and on your profile page. Scholars sites also can be found through the website’s search engine and external search engines.
- Request a Scholars site by sending an email to email@example.com.
Principal investigators, or staff members managing projects, also can have sites for labs, centers, programs, or groups. These sites use one of two available WordPress themes with content that can range from a few simple pages to sites with blogs to more elaborate structures.
Research publications from current and recent Scripps Oceanography researchers, faculty, and students are posted on the Recent Publications page and individual Scripps Scholars sites. Publications must be Section A material; conference proceedings are not included.
- We mainly find out about publications from a weekly alert from Web of Science -- which may take weeks to months to index a paper, depending on the journal.
- To speed the process, you may also let us know about a new paper by emailing the DOI and other relevant information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
