Create a Researcher Profile

To ensure that you receive credit for your scholarly publications, you need to create a Researcher Profile. Researcher Profiles and Identifiers can be used to:‚Äč

  • differentiate your work from the work of other author's with similar names and accommodate any variations in the way you represent your name across your scholarly publications;
  • locate metrics such as citation counts and your H-index for all your publications; and
  • make your work more discoverable to the world.

Contact your Liaison Librarian for assistance to create an ORCiD, Researcher ID, to review your Scopus ID, and to integrate your current Identifiers with your ORCiD.
