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)
- Where is it used? For articles indexed in Scopus
- How do I get one? You’re automatically assigned a Scopus Author ID when your work is indexed by Scopus.
- Not sure if you have one? You can search for your Scopus Author ID.
ResearcherID (Clarivate Analytics prev. Thomson Reuters)
- Where is it used? Integrated in the Web of Science (WoS)
- How do I get one? You have to register and create a ResearcherID to get one.
- Not sure if you have one? You can check to see if you have created a ResearcherID.

Using your Author IDs can save you time!
Here are two things that you can do to save time.
- 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.
