How do I highlight a work so that it appears at the top of my list of publications?

It is possible to highlight up to 5 publications so that they appear first in the list of research output on the profile overview (this is the default view when first navigating to a profile). Follow the steps below, outlined in our video tutorial entitled “Highlighting content on your Illinois Experts profile.”

  1. Log in to Illinois Experts using your NetID and active directory password.
  2. Click on the “edit profile” button next to your profile photo/avatar to open the profile editing window.
  3. Select “Portal profile” in the menu on the left side of the editing window.
  4. In the section labeled “Highlighted content”, select the open-book icon and click the plus button to open a search bar.
  5. Begin typing the title of the desired work, and then select that work from the resulting list.
  6. Repeat step 5 to highlight additional works (a maximum of 5 may be selected).
  7. Click the “save” button before closing the editing window.

Other types of content (activities, honors, press/media items, etc.) may also be highlighted in this way. Although changes will generally appear on the public portal within a few minutes, in rare cases it may take up to a day for the changes to appear. Highlighted content will only be prioritized on the lists that appear in the profile overview.
