Frequently Asked Questions

Below is a list of frequently asked questions about Discovery.

Discovery is a search portal that fosters connection and collaboration with Florida International Universities’ expertise and impact.

The platform is the next phase of Scholars@FIU and is a strategic component of the Universities’ research technology infrastructure for fostering team science and research collaboration.

Powered by an integrated stack of technologies, Discovery helps faculty optimize their digital presence by automating the aggregation, linking and dissemination of high-quality data about the University’s people, organizations, and related scholarly and creative works.

There are a number of reasons why it is beneficial to maintain information in Discovery.

  • Discovery can help you reduce the amount of effort it takes to manage and automate high quality Scholarly & Creative works data associated with you within FIU (i.e. Panther180 via ORCID) and outside of FIU (i.e. ORCIDScopusWeb of Science, Crossref, Publons, SciENcv).
  • Discovery is a central place to link to the various digital presences you may already maintain. (i.e. Website,  Google ScholarResearchGate, LinkedIn, Twitter)
  • Discovery is a strategic component of FIU’s university wide integrated infrastructure for enabling research collaboration and discovery.   By maintaining at least some basic profile information, you will enhance your ability to leverage the related support resources across campus which are focused on facilitating your success.

Currently profiles are created for active faculty with 9 and 12 month contracts.   It is anticipated that profiles will be created in the future for other populations of people.

At this time, Discovery is not integrating data from Panther180 into Discovery.   However, the data entered into Panther180 is being assessed for future integration possibilities.

We are currently developing mechanisms that will allow you to automate information from Discovery to your website.   We are also working with related resources on campus to populate other university websites/faculty directories.
