Is there a way to turn off the collaboration map that currently appears in my profile?

Yes. By default, your portal profile displays a map that visualizes your research connections based on coauthor affiliations on publications from the most recent 5 years. However, in some cases, researchers may want to deactivate the display of the collaboration map. To do so,

  1. Navigate to your profile by clicking “Edit your profile” on the experts.illinois.edu homepage
  2. Click the “Edit profile…” link under your name at the top of the page
  3. In the left sidebar, click “Portal profile”
  4. Under “Collaboration map”, click the switch set to “On” to toggle it to “Off”
  5. Finally, click “Save” at the bottom of the window

Changes made to the profile will generally appear on the public portal within a few minutes. However, in rare cases, it may take up to a day for the changes to appear.
