Developing Your Profile (cont.)

It is important to manage your research profile. What does this mean exactly?  You want to ensure that your scholarship and published research is identified with you.  This can be a challenge, especially for those with similar (or the same) names to others.  When possible, be consistent in the use of your name and use a version that can be identified with only you.

Create a profile and keep it current.  

Sites that you can use include the following:


This is a site for managing and sharing research papers, discovering research and identifying potential collaborators. (A part of Elsevier)


The Open Researcher and Contributor ID provides a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher and, through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, supports automated linkages between you and your professional activities ensuring that your work is recognized.

A Web of Science platform that provides a free service for academics to track, verify, and showcase their peer review and editorial contributions for academic journals.


Scopus has a unique Author ID, allowing you to highlight your publication profile and citation metrics in your Author Profile.
