What is "expertise"?

John Wickerson 5 years ago updated by Christian Fritz 5 years ago 1

On my bibbase user page (http://bibbase.org/network/user/HM4cx8dr8GBTH8vxX) there is a section on the left-hand side of the page called "Expertise". It's currently empty. How do I populate it? (Perhaps it's supposed to come from the "keywords" fields of my papers?)

Expertise is akin to what Stack Overflow calls Reputation. It is a score that is given by peers for recognized knowledge in an area. You gain expertise for keywords when other users on BibBase up-vote papers of yours that use those keywords, or up-vote responses of yours to papers that use those keywords.
