Transcript

  • 1. www.le.ac.uk/library Don’t lose credit for your research! Ian Rowlands University Library Research Festival 2014 Research Bytes 4
  • 2. The problem
  • 3. • 1.8 million peer-reviewed journal articles published each year … that’s one paper every 18 seconds! • 1.5 million researchers currently publish in peer- reviewed journals • 350 million people share five surnames (Lee, Zhang, Wang, Nguyen, Garcia) • Your name is probably not unique
  • 4. Some information identifiers ISBN ISSN DOI Coming soon Institutional identifiers Funding body identifiers
  • 5. Why are researcher identifiers needed? • Most names are not unique (“John Smith”) • Names change due to marriage, etc. • Transliteration from other alphabets or character sets creates name variants • People make spelling errors (or propagate them) when they cite the literature • There are cultural differences in name order
  • 6. Name variants in Scopus Artigas, María Soler Artigas, M. Soler Artigas, Maria Soler Soler Artigas, María Soler Artigas, M. Soler Artigas, Maria
  • 7. Name variants in Scopus Artigas, María Soler Artigas, M. Soler Artigas, Maria Soler Soler-Artigas, María Soler Artigas, M. Soler Artigas, Maria
  • 8. What are researcher identifiers? Persistent unique digital identifiers (numeric or alphanumeric codes) associated with a particular author. e.g. Rowlands, Ian (A-3519-2012)
  • 9. Why use researcher identifiers? • Make sure all your outputs are associated with you • More accurate citation counts, h-index and other measures of impact • Find all your/others work easily
  • 10. Researcher identifiers for the big citation databases • Web of Science (Researcher ID) • Scopus (Author ID)
  • 11. How do they work? Scopus and Web of Science use algorithms that automatically assign papers to a unique author identity. They work by clustering papers based on author names and addresses and patterns of citation and co- authorship …
  • 12. Scopus author search
  • 13. Problems with the algorithmic approach Identity splitting your papers may be allocated to more than one cluster Identity clumping your papers may be merged with someone of a similar name
  • 14. It can go wrong … Nicholas, David Bruce University of Calgary, Calgary, Canada Author ID: 24562174700 Nicholas, D.B., Hendson, L., Reis, M.D. Connection vs disconnection: Examining culturally competent care in the neonatal intensive care unit (2014) Social Work in Health Care 53 (2) pp 135 – 155. doi: 10.1080/00981389.2013.864377 Jubb, M., Rowlands, I., Nicholas, D. Value of libraries: Relationships between provision, usage, and research outcomes (2013) Evidence Based Library and Information Practice 8 (2) pp 139 – 152.

  • 16. Scopus Web of Science ORCID Scopus ID:23082487000 Researcher ID: F-3064-2011 Researcher ID: A-3519-2012 Proprietary IDs Universal ID http://orcid.org/0000-0001-8831-540X
  • 17. How do I do make it happen? 1. Check your Scopus author record and profile and tidy up if necessary 2. Check your Web of Science author record and profile and tidy up where necessary 3. Set up an ORCID identifier and enable sharing with Scopus and Web of Science (and vice versa) 4. Add your ORCID identifier to your IRIS profile

  • 19. You will need to create a Web of Science account to have control over your ResearcherID Web of Science: ResearcherID tool
