Microsoft Academic Search automatically creates a profile for authors who have published in the universe it searches. Therefore it is a good idea for scholars to check their profile and make any needed changes. You may find that there is more than one profile for you. If so, you can edit and merge them.
To edit your profile you will need to sign in to Academic Search using your Microsoft, Yahoo, Facebook or Google credentials . To do so, go to http://academic.research.microsoft.com/ and click on the link to "Sign in".

A word of caution:
