The Personal Profile module in Commons is the central repository of information for all Commons registered users. It is designed so that individual eRA system users can hold and maintain ownership over the accuracy of their own profile information. This profile information is then integrated throughout eRA's systems and used for a variety of agency business such as peer review, application data, and trainee data. Users are responsible for keeping their information current and correct. This data must be kept up to date to ensure that grant applications are processed accurately and that reviewer conflicts may be identified.
Additionally, users can create or connect their ORCHID ID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) to their eRA Commons account, so that their publications can be linked to their grants.
The personal profile is divided into sections of information and includes: Name and ID, demographics, employment, reviewer information, trainee information, education, reference letters and publications.
