Providing a service?
Here you can find an overview of all open service requests in your expertise e.g. editing services. By clicking on one of the squared boxes, you will open the communication field where you can exchange messages and documents with the clients.
If I understand the information abouve under "What is my dashboard?", it seems as if the expert must upload his CV and any other information each time he'she enters a new client communication field.
Is there currently a way for "experts" to make an uploaded CV or other references available to "would-be" clients when they are perusing service provider profiles?
Yes, edit your profile! Put in a link to your ResearchGate, Mendeley or LinkedIn profile. Add a good "about me" text. New clients that you contact will see the profile. In fact, when you edit your profile, there is a preview option "how clients see your profile".
The profile is limited to basic information since we believe we should re-use what is already in other profiles. Soon we will start displaying full Mendeley profile for those experts that signed up with Mendeley account. And we foresee ORCid connector on the short term.
