I'm new to Latex. I am creating my resume using moderncv and I want to add my google scholar and researchgate profiles (icon and clickable link) to the preamble (below the website link in the image). Is there a simpler way to do that? enter image description here

Here is my preamble:

    \documentclass[11pt,a4paper,sans]{moderncv}        % possible options include font size ('10pt', '11pt' and '12pt'), paper size ('a4paper', 'letterpaper', 'a5paper', 'legalpaper', 'executivepaper' and 'landscape') and font family ('sans' and 'roman')

% modern themes
\moderncvstyle{banking}                            % style options are 'casual' (default), 'classic', 'oldstyle' and 'banking'
\moderncvcolor{black}                                % color options 'blue' (default), 'orange', 'green', 'red', 'purple', 'grey' and 'black'
%\renewcommand{\familydefault}{\sfdefault}         % to set the default font; use '\sfdefault' for the default sans serif font, '\rmdefault' for the default roman one, or any tex font name
%\nopagenumbers{}                                  % uncomment to suppress automatic page numbering for CVs longer than one page
\usepackage[parfill]{parskip} % Remove paragraph indentation
% character encoding
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}                       % if you are not using xelatex ou lualatex, replace by the encoding you are using
\usepackage[parfill]{parskip} % Remove paragraph indentation
\usepackage{array} % Required for boldface (\bf and \bfseries) tabular columns
\usepackage{ifthen} % Required for ifthenelse statements
\usepackage{fontawesome}
% \usepackage{hyperref}
\pagestyle{empty} % Suppress page numbers

\usepackage{import}

  • Sorry for the delay. I got caught up on some other things and did not have the chance to edit my question or check the answers. However, your solution worked for me. Thanks.

Because you did not give us a complete MWE, I can only guess as to why you are using \vspace{-2.00cm} in your code/preamble. I suppose that it will not do what you want, but that is alas another question ;-)

A command exists for your problem: \socials in class moderncv:

\social[googlescholar]{john.doe} % <====================================
\social[researchgate]{john.doe} % <===================================== 

john.doe stands for your account name in both cases.

To be able to use these commands you need to add the following code to your preamble:

% makes a https hyperlink
% usage: \httpslink[optional text]{link}
\newcommand*{\httpslink}[2][]{% <=======================================
  \ifthenelse{\equal{#1}{}}%
    {\href{https://#2}{#2}}%
    {\href{https://#2}{#1}}}
    
\newcommand*{\googlescholarsocialsymbol}  {\includegraphics[width=0.5cm]{example-image-a}~} % <===================
\newcommand*{\researchgatesocialsymbol}  {\includegraphics[width=0.5cm]{example-image-b}~} % <===================
\newcommand*{\testsocialsymbol}  {\includegraphics[width=0.5cm]{example-image-c}~} % <===================

\makeatletter
\RenewDocumentCommand{\social}{O{}O{}m}{%
  \ifthenelse{\equal{#2}{}}%
    { 
    \ifthenelse{\equal{#1}{linkedin}}{\collectionadd[linkedin]{socials}{\protect\httpslink[#3]{www.linkedin.com/in/#3}}}{}%
    \ifthenelse{\equal{#1}{googlescholar}}{\collectionadd[googlescholar]{socials}{\protect\httpslink[#3]{www.googlescholar.com/profile/#3}}}{}% <================================================================
    \ifthenelse{\equal{#1}{researchgate}}{\collectionadd[researchgate]{socials}{\protect\httpslink[#3]{www.researchgate.com/profile/#3}}}{}% <================================================================
      \ifthenelse{\equal{#1}{twitter}} {\collectionadd[twitter]{socials} {\protect\httpslink[#3]{www.twitter.com/#3}}}    {}%
      \ifthenelse{\equal{#1}{github}}  {\collectionadd[github]{socials}  {\protect\httpslink[#3]{www.github.com/#3}}}     {}%
    }
    {\collectionadd[#1]{socials}{\protect\httpslink[#3]{#2}}}}
\makeatother

That allows you to use the given commands \socials. Please note that you have to change the code www.googlescholar.com/profile/ for

{\protect\httpslink[#3]{www.googlescholar.com/profile/#3}} 

to what you need. #3 contains your displayed name, which is also the account name.

The second part you have to change is the following commands:

\newcommand*{\googlescholarsocialsymbol}  {\includegraphics[width=0.5cm]{example-image-a}~} 

Instead of \includegraphics[width=0.5cm]{example-image-a} add the image you need, to display the logo of that page you did not tell us.

If the displayed name and the link differ in the last part (john.doe is not part of the link, but you want to display it, you can use the following command:

\social[test][www.test.com/profile/123456]{john.doe} % <=====================================

Then please change the second and third parameter to your needs. Instead of test use googlescholar and researchgate to name the new social commands. BTW, if you only use the possibility of test you can use a shorter code in your preamble:

\makeatletter
\RenewDocumentCommand{\social}{O{}O{}m}{%
  \ifthenelse{\equal{#2}{}}%
    { 
    \ifthenelse{\equal{#1}{linkedin}}{\collectionadd[linkedin]{socials}{\protect\httpslink[#3]{www.linkedin.com/in/#3}}}{}%
      \ifthenelse{\equal{#1}{twitter}} {\collectionadd[twitter]{socials} {\protect\httpslink[#3]{www.twitter.com/#3}}}    {}%
      \ifthenelse{\equal{#1}{github}}  {\collectionadd[github]{socials}  {\protect\httpslink[#3]{www.github.com/#3}}}     {}%
    }
    {\collectionadd[#1]{socials}{\protect\httpslink[#3]{#2}}}}
\makeatother

You need this code to get https: instead of http: in the links ...

With the following compilable code (MWE; please next time add one to your question!):

\documentclass[11pt,a4paper,sans]{moderncv}

% moderncv themes
\moderncvstyle{banking} % casual, classic, banking, oldstyle and fancy
\moderncvcolor{blue} 

\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}

\usepackage[scale=0.75]{geometry}

% makes a https hyperlink
% usage: \httpslink[optional text]{link}
\newcommand*{\httpslink}[2][]{% <=======================================
  \ifthenelse{\equal{#1}{}}%
    {\href{https://#2}{#2}}%
    {\href{https://#2}{#1}}}
    
\newcommand*{\googlescholarsocialsymbol}  {\includegraphics[width=0.5cm]{example-image-a}~} % <===================
\newcommand*{\researchgatesocialsymbol}  {\includegraphics[width=0.5cm]{example-image-b}~} % <===================
\newcommand*{\testsocialsymbol}  {\includegraphics[width=0.5cm]{example-image-c}~} % <===================

\makeatletter
\RenewDocumentCommand{\social}{O{}O{}m}{%
  \ifthenelse{\equal{#2}{}}%
    { 
    \ifthenelse{\equal{#1}{linkedin}}{\collectionadd[linkedin]{socials}{\protect\httpslink[#3]{www.linkedin.com/in/#3}}}{}%
    \ifthenelse{\equal{#1}{googlescholar}}{\collectionadd[googlescholar]{socials}{\protect\httpslink[#3]{www.googlescholar.com/profile/#3}}}{}% <================================================================
    \ifthenelse{\equal{#1}{researchgate}}{\collectionadd[researchgate]{socials}{\protect\httpslink[#3]{www.researchgate.com/profile/#3}}}{}% <================================================================
      \ifthenelse{\equal{#1}{twitter}} {\collectionadd[twitter]{socials} {\protect\httpslink[#3]{www.twitter.com/#3}}}    {}%
      \ifthenelse{\equal{#1}{github}}  {\collectionadd[github]{socials}  {\protect\httpslink[#3]{www.github.com/#3}}}     {}%
    }
    {\collectionadd[#1]{socials}{\protect\httpslink[#3]{#2}}}}

    Trying to load the logo can be problematic for some reason. Instead of file one can also use the fontawesome logos used for other socials logos. To do so add \usepackage{fontawesome} to the beginning of the preamble and change the relevant symbol line with: \newcommand*{\googlescholarsocialsymbol}{{\small\faGraduationCap}~}

Sort of hacky method. Change the \rule{1em}{1em} to something that includes the logos you want.

Firstly, add a new class file name moderncv.cls and paste the code in the link https://github.com/xdanaux/moderncv/blob/master/moderncv.cls

If you want to add icons then download the icon image from google search and upload on your project then find the line

\collectionnew{socials}

Then add the bellow code before it (as much copy as you needed)

\newcommand*{\googlescholarsocialsymbol}  {\includegraphics[width=0.5cm]{example-image-a}~}

example-image-a is the corresponding image name.

Now use as follows -

\social[researchgate]{name}
\social[googlescholar]{id}
