Researcher profiles and ORCID

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

About RMIT academic staff profiles

All RMIT academics have public academic profiles on the RMIT website. These profiles appear in external search results like Google and can be linked to your external research profiles such as ORCID, Google Scholar Author Profile, LinkedIn, etc.

Your academic profile may include:

  • information about qualifications, industry experience, publications, research grants and supervisor projects
  • a short research impact statement
  • your author identifiers, for example ORCID, Twitter, LinkedIn

Updating your RMIT academic 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.

Reporting research outputs

All staff

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 ROC form.

New staff

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.
