Author Identifiers and Profiles
Author identifiers are meant to help with author name disambiguation. In order to measure your impact as an author, you want to be sure you get credit for all your research output. Publishing under variations of your name, having a common name, changing your name, changing institutions - all of these can lead to your work being incorrectly associated with another author, or you can end up with several author profiles.
ORCID: Open Research & Contributor ID
An international and interdisciplinary organization. This provides researchers with a register to obtain a unique and permanent identifier that distinguishes them from any others. It enables the attribution of academic works.
Use Publons to track your publications, citation metrics, peer reviews, and journal editing work in a single, easy-to-maintain profile. • All your publications, instantly imported from Web of Science, ORCID, or your bibliographic reference manager (e.g. EndNote or Mendeley). • Trusted citation metrics, automatically imported from the Web of Science Core Collection. • Correct author attribution, with your unique ResearcherID automatically added to the publications you claim in Web of Science collections.
Scopus Author ID
Scopus automatically generates an author identifier for authors in the Scopus database and attempts to disambiguate authors and build an author profile. Citation metrics are included with each author profile. You cannot edit your author profile yourself, but you can request corrections if publications are incorrectly assigned (or missing from) your profile or you find other errors.
Google Scholar Citations
Set up an author profile in Google Scholar Citations and you can view citation metrics for your publications and get an email alert every time one of your publications is cited.
