Give profiled researchers a list, in order of recency, of citations to their publications as listed in their profile. Use Microsoft Academic Research's API to do so.
At present, the only way to know this information is to sign up using Scopus or Web of Knowledge. Google Scholar also has a tool but their author disambiguation is relatively weak.
If indeed you can get the names of the publications from Microsoft Academic, this has upsides for both system administrators and profiled researchers. Profiled researchers learn about who is discussing their work. System administrators, and the university in general, have a carrot to encourage researchers to keep their publications accurate and up to date.
