ORCID and other Researcher Profiles

Create your Google Scholar Profile

Creating a Google Scholar Citation profile will make sure that Google Scholar will easily and accurately group all the citations of your publications into one pool.   A profile generally lists your name, chosen keywords of research interest, generated citation metrics, and citations (including links to citing articles). 

In order to create a Google Scholar Citation profile, you need a Google Account. Once the profile is set up, it will automatically update. 

  1. Sign to your Google account, or create one if you don't have one.
  2. After you sign in, the Citations sign up form will ask you to confirm the spelling of your name, to enter your affiliation, etc. 
  3. On the next page, you will see a list of articles. Add the articles that are yours.
  4. Once you're done with adding articles, it will ask you what to do when the article data changes in Google Scholar. You can either have the updates applied to your profile automatically or you can choose to review them beforehand.
  5. Finally, you will see your profile.Once you are satisfied with the results, make your profile public.

Google Scholar Profile Metrics

Your Google Scholar Profile will display your citations, h-index and i10-index as calculated by publications in Google Scholar. These metrics are updated automatically as Google Scholar adds your new publications.
