We recognise that not everyone will always want to display citation and comparative metrics on their profiles.  For that reason your metrics can be hidden from the profile settings page of your private dashboard.

Allow others to see your publication and review metrics

This is selected by default.  Deselecting it will hide the “Metrics” page of your profile as well as the Total Citation Count and h-index from your profile card.  You will still be able to see these things if you are logged in and they will also be present on your dashboard summary page.

Allow others to see your h-index on your profile

If you don’t want to hide all your metrics but are no fan of the h-index then you can hide this individually using this setting.  It will be removed from your profile but will still be shown on your dashboard summary page.
