Not only is Scribd committed to changing the way the world reads, but we’re also committed to supporting the voice of authors. With a profile on Scribd, you can be part of the Scribd community as both an author and a reader. You’ll be able to create reading lists to share on Scribd with your fans and upload supplementary documents for your readers to enjoy.
If you’d like, you can purchase your own subscription to enjoy access to Scribd’s library of over 500,000 books. Besides that, you can also check on your own books anytime and update your account information whenever you need to.
To help get you started, here are a few commonly asked questions:
What kind of changes can I make to my author profile?
You can change your display name, profile picture, and share your bio on your profile page. The help topics in Your Account can provide specifics on how you can do this.
How do I claim my author profile and get started?
The first thing to do is contact Scribd support. We will need to verify that the author profile that you are trying to claim is indeed yours, so please include any information you can to help with that process and we’ll handle the rest.
What if I have an existing Scribd account?
If you have an existing Scribd account and also publish books through a distributor, Scribd staff can “merge” the two accounts together. This will allow you to keep your Scribd accounts' history and manage your public author profile. You'll need to contact us so we can process this for you - it’s especially helpful if you can provide a link to both profiles along with your request.
