ORCiD (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) provides a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher and, through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, supports automated linkages between you and your professional activities ensuring that your work is recognised.
ORCiD will help you to distinguish your research activities and outputs from those of other researchers with similar names and are increasingly being used by funding bodies such as NHMRC and ARC.
Research staff can use the research information system, RIS, to maintain a profile page on the CDU Research webportal and to keep track of research activities, outputs and outcomes such as:
HDR students who have passed their Confirmation of Candidature can showcase their profile and research project on the public-facing
CDU Research webportal.
The Scopus Author Identifier assigns a unique number to each author in the Scopus database and groups together all their publications. It accounts for variant versions of names by matching affiliations, addresses, subject areas, co-authors and dates of publication. It automatically calculates citation counts and the h-index.
If you have published in a journal that is indexed in Scopus, a Scopus Author Identifier would have been automatically generated for you. Sometimes this can result in several Scopus Author ID's especially if your name, institution or field of research has changed. See here to correct your author profile or sign in here to connect your Scopus Author Identifier to your ORCID.
Researchers around the world use ResearcherID to track their publications and ensure their publications are correctly attributed to them across Web of Science collections. See here for further information.
Create a profile in Google Scholar to ensure correct attribution of your publications and citations. Profiles can be private or public. We strongly recommend all citations are checked for accuracy.
