  • Researchers, scientists, and academic institutions around the world helped create ResearcherID. What, Exactly, Does ResearcherID Enable? Lets researchers establish their own identities and their body of writing Safe and secure community that fosters collaboration around the world Provides an in-depth look at citing article and research collaboration relationships Allows the registered researcher to manage their professional profiles and further inform people about their work
  • How Does ResearcherID Work? A secure web platform creates a system-generated unique identifier for each registrant As a free online community anyone can access and use ResearcherID, but privacy options are set and controlled by the registrant Allows connection from customer’s administrative systems for direct access to registry Publication lists can be built by uploading RID files or by searching Thomson Reuters’ Web of Science to build the list ResearcherID interacts with Web of Science content to provide researchers with bibliographic data and cition counts
  • Several enhancements have been added to Researcher ID in the May 2010 upgrade to make navigating and working with results simpler. -the home page has been redesigned to give you more options for managing your own profile and searching for others’ -learn more about the geographic distribution of researchers in the Researcher ID registry using tools like our new interactive world map, Top Countries tag cloud and “Map These” functionality. -It’s now simpler to work with search results – choose the number of results to view per page and set your preferred sort options -Items uploaded from an RIS file now have the potential to display citation counts – matches are run against Web of Science data and if a match is found a Times Cited count will display. You do not need to have a subscription to Web of Science to take advantage of this feature. -All Researcher ID users will have access to Endnote Web, Thomson Reuter’s online bibliographic management tool. Complete Endnote Web functionality is available with a limited set of connection files, import filters and output styles.
  • The Researcher ID home page redesign provides ** quick access to your profile, ** search for others’ profiles, ** or explore the new Interactive Map feature. ** Follow news about Researcher ID on Facebook or Twitter.
  • The Interactive World Map feature displays a geographic distribution of Researcher ID profiles. Any author who has made their country affiliation public information will have their profile mapped. Countries which display the darkest colors ** have the most researcher profiles in Researcher ID. Hover over a country ** to see the name and the number of researchers.
  • The Researcher ID search page now has an option to search by country. Use the drop down menu to select a country name from the alphabetical list. This search can be combined with institution, topic or author name.
  • Any set of search results can now be displayed geographically using the Interactive World Map. Searching for researchers that are *1* studying violets produces a list *2 and 3* that can be mapped. Click the *4* “Map These” button to create the map.
  • Results are mapped at the top of the page, and shown in list form at the bottom. As with any Interactive Map, hover over the countries to see the number of researchers associated with each. Researcher ID now allows you to customize the number of results you view per page. Use the *1* drop down menu to select 10, 25 or 50 results per page.
  • Items uploaded to your Researcher ID profile from a saved RIS file produced from Endnote will now be matched against available Web of Science data. If an item is successfully matched to a Web of Science record the citation data for that article will be viewable on your Researcher ID profile. This matching is done automatically, even if you aren’t a current Web of Science subscriber. If you don’t have access to Web of Science you won’t be able to click the article title for access to the database record, but any user viewing your profile that is a subscriber will have active links.
  • Freely available features like the ResearcherID badge allow researcher publication and profile information to be included in different workflows. The examples above show integration into department and individual web pages
  • InCites is a customized, citation-based research analytics tool on the Web. It provides administrators with comprehensive metrics and advanced reporting tools, such as PDF creation of reports and exporting graphs to Excel, so they can evaluate institutional productivity and benchmark their output against peers worldwide. By integrating with ResearcherID the institution can accurately track the output and impact of their researchers. And with proper author identification and the personalized metrics provided by ResearcherID, other questions are more accurately answered by InCites, such as “Which authors are rising stars? Who are they collaborating with? And where are they located?”
