DEIA Statements Added to BU Profiles

When BU Profiles launched in 2012, it was intended to serve as an online dossier for biomedical researchers to engage in research networking and collaboration. It employs software that automatically updates user profile categories like publication, citations, grant funding, honors, co-author research networks and publication timelines. Over time, BU Profiles evolved to provide researchers with metrics to monitor and assess their research productivity, impact on science and policy, and influence on the public through social media and news stories.

Now, the platform has been further enhanced to give the nearly 5,000 biomedical faculty, researchers and staff who use the site the option of adding a personalized Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility (DEIA) statement to their profile. Read more
