ORCID is an open, non-profit and community-driven scheme. Researchers register and create their own profile by adding publications and/or linking to other author identity profiles. ACU Library recommends that researchers register for an ORCID.
|Scopus author identifier||Created for you by Scopus if you have publications indexed in that database. Search for yourself in Scopus to see if you have this ID.|
|ResearcherID||Assigns a unique ID number to each registered researcher. Researchers must create and maintain their own profile by adding details of their publications, via the Web of Science database. Recommended if you have publications in Web of Science.|
|Google Scholar Citations Profile||Set up a profile via your Google account. A Google Scholar Profile will display a limited set of metrics as calculated by publications in Google Scholar.|
