Faculty Profile Content Sources

Local data

Some data is managed directly on the department site as there is no external source for this data. The following fields can be edited by the department website editors:

  • Research Themes: Checkboxes to indicate the research areas in which you are active. The options selected for the 'Research Themes' will determine where you appear in the research section of the site (http://sociology.duke.edu/research).
  • Additional info: A rich-text field where narrative text may be added to supplement the overview consumed from Scholars@Duke.

System of record sources

The profiles pull most of their data from external sources such as Scholars@Duke, Duke@Work, and the Duke Directory. Note that changes made in these systems of record will not immediately appear on your profile, but should be present within 24 hours.
