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. Log in to Illinois Experts using the University’s single sign-on process.
  2. Click the “Edit profile…” link below your profile photo/avatar
  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 24 hours for the changes to appear.
