Researcher Profile Platforms:

  • ORCID  ID (Open Researcher & Contributor ID)
    It  is a non-profit organization supported by a global community of organizational members, including research organizations, publishers, funders, professional associations, and other stakeholders in the research ecosystem. An open, non-profit, community-based effort to create and maintain a registry of unique researcher identifiers. The ORCID Registry is available free of charge to individuals, who may obtain an ORCID, manage their record of activities, and search for others in the Registry. Researchers can import their existing publications indexed in Web of Science, Scopus, Google Scholar, and others, to their ORCID ID.


  • ResearcherID (Web of Science)
    Your publications listed in the Web of Science database are added to your profile – thus ensuring accuracy in tracking your publication history and making it faster to track how your work is cited.Create and manage a professional profile, build an online publication list, measure performance with cited counts and h-index.

  • Scopus Author  ID
