What is ResearcherID? How can I register for it?
January 14, 2013
Researcher ID is a global, multi-disciplinary scholarly research community. ResearcherID provides a solution to the author ambiguity problem within the scholarly research community. 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. In addition, your ResearcherID information integrates with theWeb of Knowledge and is ORCID compliant, allowing you to claim and showcase your publications from a single one account. Search the registry to find collaborators, review publication lists and explore how research is used around the world.
ResearcherID registration is available to all ISI Web of Knowledge users. You can also register at ResearcherID. Use the same email address and password for both resources.
See video instruction clip: How to register, create your own Researcher ID, and build a publication list in ResearcherID.
Some interesting features of Researcher ID:
A Citing Articles Network depicts who is citing your articles. An interactive world map shows the top geographic locations. And a graphical display shows your top citations by author, category, country/territory, institution or year.
A Collaboration Network displays your collaboration associates. An interactive world map shows the top geographic locations. And a graphical display shows your top collaborators by author, category, country/territory, institution or year.
A Badge feature that allows you or others to place an interactive badge on any web page. When moving the cursor over the badge, a window will display a summary of your profile and recent publications -- enabling you to elevate your professional profile overall by promoting your ResearcherID environment and highlighting your scholarly works.
