Stanford Profiles

Stanford Profiles is a university-wide system for maintaining your profile information. It will serve as both a source for all School of Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences profile pages at the school, department, program, and research group levels as well as a web destination in its own right for public and Stanford-only viewing.

There are two available versions of each person's profile:


Profiles are automatically available for all regular and emeritus faculty, post-docs, graduate students, and most staff.

Affiliated Faculty

Profiles are available for affiliated faculty if they are already in the Stanford Profiles system through a non-SE3 academic department or institute.

Undergraduates, consutling staff, and temporary staff

Undergraduate students, consulting staff and temporary staff do not have profiles in the Stanford Profiles system.

Manually Added Profiles

Associates without a Stanford Profile can be manually added to the school People pages.

Update Your Profile

Please use the following as a brief tutorial to review and update your profile. Feel free to contact web services at if you need any assistance reviewing or updating your profile.

  1. Go to to view the public profiles site.

    2. Click "Profile Visibility Settings" to change visibility options. All regular and emeritus faculty have their profiles set to 'visible' by default. You can choose to hide your profile completely from both the public and Stanford-only sites, or if your profile is visible, you can choose to make the various sections visible either publicly or to Stanford-only.  Important note: only publicly available sections of a visible profile will be available to display on School of Earth, Energy, and Environmental Sciences web pages.
    3. There is a list of people who have update access to your profile. You may add additional maintainers by SUNet ID by clicking the "add new" link.
  6. Profile Photo. You may upload and crop a profile photo.
  7. Inbox. This section will let you know if there are new publications from PubMed or Reuter's Web of Science awaiting your confirmation to be added to your profile.

"Patents", "Keywords", "Projects", and "Presentations" sections have, with a few exceptions, been left unpopulated. Please feel free to update these as needed.
  11. "Courses" and "Postdoctoral Advisees" sections are populated by Stanford HR and Administrative systems. Please follow the instructions provided in that section to request updates.
  12. Publications
    1. The list of publications has 3 sources: Stanford's PubMed database, Reuter's Web of Science database, and Manual Entry. (Publication records from your current School of Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences profile that were not found in either of the first two databases were added to your CAP profile as "Manual Entry" records.)
    2. Please note: Capitalization and other formatting may be different from record to record depending on the source of the record. The CAP development team is aware of the problem, but will not have a fix in this release to make the formatting more uniform.
    3. Pubmed and Web of Science records, and manual entry records that include a Document Object Identifier (DOI) number will include a "More" link which will display links to the actual publication. 
    4. Click on "edit publication import settings" to turn automatic publication import on or off, or to add publications written under a different name or while at a different institution.
    5. Notice the "publication topics for this person" on the publications page of your public profile. These topics are generated only for keywords found in articles that are in the PubMed database. 
  13. Help. Your Stanfod-only profile page includes a "FeedbacK" link on the right side of the page. This link  will allow you to create a HelpSU ticket to report any problems or concerns, That ticket will first go to SE3 web services who will try to address the problem. If they are unable to address the problem, they will escalate it to the Stanford Profiles university development team.
