Adopting a unique researcher / author identifier is critical for showcasing your work, managing workflows, identifying potential collaborators, avoiding being misidentified and tracking your research for funding or grant applications.
These free tools will enable you to create a researcher profile:
- ORCID (Open Researcher & Contributor ID)
Provides a persistent digital identifier for you as researcher. It helps with workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, supports linkages between you and your professional activities ensuring that your work is recognised.
- ResearcherID (Web of Science)
ResearcherID information integrates with the Web of Science and is ORCID compliant, allowing you to claim & showcase your publications from a single account. (Note: SCGH does not have access to Web of Science)
- Google Scholar - My Citations
Click My Citations to set up an account and collect all your publications appearing in Google Scholar into your account. Profiles can be private or public. It is strongly recommended that all citations be checked for accuracy.
- GRID (Global Research Identifier Database)
Information about research organizations around the world to data scientists, developers and innovators within academic and commercial organizations. The GRID dataset addresses the problem of messy and inconsistent data on research institutions, ensuring that each entity is included correctly and only once.
