Researcher profiles and ORCID

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

RMIT public profiles

Welcome to RMIT! This page outlines information on research profiles for research staff who are new to RMIT.

RMIT public profiles 

All RMIT academics have public academic profiles on the RMIT University website. These profiles appear in external search results like Google and can be linked to your external research profiles such as Google Scholar Author Profile, ResearcherID on Publons, Scopus Author ID and other public profiles like Twitter, LinkedIn, ResearchGate, and Social Science Research Network (SSRN). 


Updating your RMIT public profile 

  • To update your overview information, qualifications, key activities or industry experience please submit a Staff profile content submission service request via Service Now. 

  • For publications, note that the staff profile lists the ten most recent reported eligible research outputs. All others can be found in the RMIT Research Repository. To see all outputs reported under your name see My Publications on the Researcher Portal. To discuss or amend your reported publications, contact 

  • To display more up-to-date and comprehensive information about your research activities (that fall outside of the 10 most recent), it is recommended that you complete your ORCiD profile and link it to your RMIT ID and it will be displayed on your academic staff profile. 

  • Note: ResearchMaster, which stores RMIT researcher public profiles and research activity data will no longer be used after November 2022. A new research management system is currently being configured, which will provide researchers with updated, editable researcher profiles. For more information visit the Project Modern SharePoint site 

Reporting research outputs

New staff members do not have to submit each of their research outputs via the ROC form. The RMIT publications team will do it for you as a one-time courtesy. Please send the following to 

  • your list of outputs published in 2016 and onwards 

  • a six-digit Field of Research (FoR) code for each output. FoRs are used for government reporting, repository categorisation and collaboration analyses 

Some outputs (such as creative works and portfolios) will still need to be submitted by you. Before you begin the process of reporting your outputs, please check the My Publications section of the Researcher Portal to ensure they haven’t been reported. Then report your output via the Report Output Capture (ROC) form
