NEW Web of Science tool: ResearcherID

Dear Readers,

Take advantage of ResearcherID, a new feature available on Web of Science.

ResearcherID is a free, online community where authors receive a unique identifier to eliminate author misidentification, increase recognition of an author's work (e.g., H-index) and facilitate global collaboration among researchers.

ResearcherID allows you to:
  • Update your profile information
  • Build your publication list using Web of Science search services or uploading a file from Endnote
  • Track the research activities of collaboration associates
  • Generate citation metrics for publications added from Web of Science, including H-index, Citation distribution per year, Total Times Cited count, and Average Times Cited count

To register for ResearcherID or to find out more, log into Web of Science and follow the links.

Look out for upcoming ResearcherID classes held in the library!
