Researcher Profiles and ORCID iDs

Maximise the visibility of your research outputs by discovering how to establish a researcher profile.

Create a (Web of Science) ResearcherID on Publons

ResearcherID on Publons allows you to manage your publications, track citation counts and calculate your h-index. You can add publications that are indexed by Web of Science or import them from another source. You can also manage your peer reviews and journal editing work through the Publons platform. 

Publons signons are now the same for all products by the Clarivate company, including EndNote and Web of Science. More information is available from Clarivate on managing access to these accounts.

You should ensure that you only have one ResearcherID. Try logging in to Publons to check whether you already have a profile. 

To register for ResearcherID and link this to your ORCID profile:

  1. Go to the Publons registration page.
  2. When asked during registration you can add your ORCID to your ResearcherID.
  3. Add further information about yourself to your profile.
  4. Add publications, see instructions below.
