That’s me, that’s my ID !

Make your Author IDs work for you.  Harness the power of Author Identifiers to Maximise Your Research Impact

Author IDs are a good way to help make sure your work is being credited to you.  Having and using Author IDs makes it easier for your research to be correctly attributed to you and any associated metrics such as citations are recorded for you. Three Author IDs that can help to maximise your impact and visibility are ScopusId and ResearcherID, and ORCID.

Scopus Author ID (Elsevier)

ResearcherID (Clarivate Analytics prev. Thomson Reuters)

Using your Author IDs can save you time!

Here are two things that you can do to save time.

  1. Add your identifiers into the NURO publications system to link your identifiers with your publications within NURO. This will save you time in the future because your publications are automatically and instantly claimed on your behalf. Linking more than one ID in NURO helps with more comprehensive matching of your publications. For example, Scopus and Web of Science provide coverage of literature across different disciplines. Utilising multiple Author IDs provides an efficient method to showcase your research.
  2. Add your Author IDs to your UON online researcher profile today!
