ORCiD & Researcher Identifiers

About

 

Why do I need to work on my online academic profile?

Your online profile is the combination of your academic activity and presence online 

Creating and maintaining your online academic profile will

  • Help the academic community and beyond connect with and cite your work

  • Increase your ability to track and measure your impact across multiple platforms

  • Ensure that your work and its impact is correctly connected and traceable to you 

  • Help you find, and be found by, new collaborators and sources of funding

 

Researcher Publication Profile Management

Ensuring your online research profiles aggregate your publications together will give you an accurate and timely overview of your citation impact. There are three main online researcher IDs used in the research ecosystem. These are Scopus, Web of Science and ORCID (Online Researcher and Contributor ID). ORCID links your publication profiles together and is a unique key that enables systems to identify you as the author of your works across the scholarly landscape. 

ResearchNow, Flinders University’s research management system, uses Scopus data to streamline the population of your publication profile. Include your ORCID in ResearchNow to keep your online identities linked together.

Instructions to clean your profile step-by-step are available, go to ResearchNow, Scopus Research Profile Management and Web of Science Researcher Profile Management
