Evaluating the scientific output: Researchers




ResearcherID provides a solution to the author ambiguity problem within the scholarly research community. Each member is assigned a unique identifier to enable researchers to manage their publication lists, track their times cited counts and h-index

How to update your ResearcherID

In addition, your ResearcherID information integrates with the Web of Science and is ORCID compliant, allowing you to claim and showcase your publications from a single one account.

Web of Science is updated weekly.

Scopus author identifier

Many authors have similar names. The Scopus Author Identifier distinguishes between these names by assigning each author in Scopus a unique number and grouping together all of the documents written by that author.
Your authorID is generated automatically provided that you have publications indexed in Scopus.

You can use the Scopus Author Feedback wizard to import into ORCID your Scopus Author Identifier and the list of your publications in Scopus.

  • Documents
  • Citations
  • H-index
  • Coautors

Google Scholar Citations provide a simple way for authors to keep track of citations to their articles. You can check who is citing your publications, graph citations over time, and compute several citation metrics.

Make your profile public, so that it may appear in Google Scholar results when people search for your name.

Open Researcher and Contribution ID                          

ORCID provides an identifier for individuals to use with their name as they engage in research, scholarship, and innovation activities. 

Your ORCID record can be linked to multiple external webpages such as a personal website, department profile, Researcher ID, Scopus ID, Google Scholar Citations, and others. More information.

You can add your ORCID-ID to your UPF Scientific Output and your institutional signature.

Support for scientific output

The University encourages all teaching and research staff  to have an ORCID-ID. It also encourages other profiles (ResearcherID, ScopusID and Google Scholar).

The advantages of having these profiles are:

  • Help with author name disambiguation.
  • Facilitate publication tracking assigning each author a unique number and grouping together all of the documents written by that author.
  • Facilitate the information needed when applying for grants
  • The best  publishers are requiring these IDs for authors

It is necessary for the Portal de Recerca de Catalunya (Catalonia Scientific Output Portal)

The Library provides help to create and update your profiles:
