Managing Your Scholarly Profile


ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) is a unique identifier to distinguish an author from their peers when submitting a paper or applying for a grant

  • An ORCID profile can act as an online version of a CV, including papers, grants, employment, education, and even peer review activity (see this fictional example) - these details can be kept private or made public
  • ORCIDs can be linked to author profiles in some databases, e.g. Scopus Author Identifier, Web of Knowledge's Researcher ID
  • Registration is free

Google Scholar

Researchers can log in to Google Scholar with a Gmail account and let the database know what papers are theirs.

  • Google Scholar can track citations to papers, generate an h-index, and act as an online bibliography that can be kept private or made public
  • See here for more information from Google
  • See Google Scholar: This time it's personal (video) for customizing Google Scholar
