Measuring Your Research Impact

 From Mann Library Libguide, Erin Eldermire

  • Sign up for an ORCID Identifier:  The Open Researcher and Contributor ID is a nonprofit organization which identifies authors by a persistent digital identifier.  The unique number assigned to you will allow publishers and aggregators of scholarly literature to distinguish you from researchers with similar names.  This is a powerful tool in author disambiguation and it takes just a few minutes to sign up. 

  • Get a ResearchID with Web of Knowledge: Minimize author misidentification by signing up for a Researcher ID. Each member is assigned a unique identifier to enable researchers to manage their publication lists, track their times cited counts and h-index, identify potential collaborators and avoid author misidentification.  Sign up here.
  • Create a Google Scholar Citations Profile:  Google scholar citations allows authors to track citations to their scholarly works and to calculate numerous citation metrics based on Google Scholar citation data.
