ResearchGate "connects researchers and makes it easy for them to share and access scientific output, knowledge, and expertise."
You will be notified when someone looks at your profile. It will say, "Someone just searched for you on Google and found your profile page on Academia.org. To see what city the search came from, follow the link below."
By using the MyResearcherID feature in Web of Science (Web of Knowledge), researchers are assigned an individual ID number that stays with them, regardless on institutional affiliation, thus allowing their research to be more easily tracked.
Once your MyResearcherID is created, your publications listed in the Web of Science database are added to your profile - thus ensuring accuracy in tracking your publication history and making it faster to track how your work is cited.
Publications can be added to ResearcherID from Web of Knowledge by selecting the “I Wrote These Publications” button.
How to export Web of Science publications into ORCID?
Scopus Author Identifier distinguishes between similar names by assigning each author in Scopus a unique number and grouping together all of the documents written by that author.
For more information see Scopus Author Identifier.
At Scopus, it is easy for researchers to freely import their research papers to ORCID through a direct link on the author detail page, shown as follows:
ISNI is the ISO certified global standard number for identifying the millions of contributors to creative works and those active in their distribution, including researchers, inventors, writers, artists, visual creators, performers, producers, publishers, aggregators, and more. It is part of a family of international standard identifiers that includes identifiers of works, recordings, products and right holders in all repertoires, e.g. DOI, ISAN, ISBN, ISRC, ISSN, ISTC, and ISWC.
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.
