Digital Measures

Digital Measures

Since Digital Measures (DM) was introduced at UWM in 2009 by the Provost for recording and tracking faculty activities, the College has focused on improving the data entry process and identifying more uses for activity data once it’s been entered. With all new L&S departmental WordPress sites, all L&S faculty profile publications will be populated by DM data.

This change allows us to standardize citation formats (APA & MLA) used on all L&S faculty pages, and gives faculty direct control over the scholarly works included on these pages. This article provides an overview of the DM activity entry process, and shows the required fields for displaying a complete journal article citation on your profile webpage.
