Evaluating the scientific output: Researchers

ca | es | en

Support for scientific output

To facilitate accreditation and visibility of your scientific output there are tools that allow you to create a researcher profile. 

The University encourages all PDI (teaching and research staff) at UPF  to have their identifiers: ORCID, Web of Science ResearcherID (Publons), ScopusID and Google Scholar Profile.

The advantages of having these profiles are:

  • help with author name disambiguation
  • facilitate publication tracking to ensure the most comprehensive recovery of all the author scientific output
  • provide the information needed when applying for grants

The Library provides help to create and update your profiles: you may ask for an appointment or for a group workshop via Help Desk
