Boost Your Scholarly Profile!

Create a unique scholarly ID

Create a scholarly ID#, such as the ORCID, in order to have a unique number to associate with your scholarship.

This is especially helpful if:

  • you have the same name as other scholars in your field

  • you have changed your name (or plan to) at some point in your career

  • you sign your name slightly differently each time you publish: Cynthia Smith, Cynthia Elizabeth Smith, Cindy Elizabeth Smith, Cindy E. Smith

  • you are known by a nickname, but publish under your full, formal name

ORCID

ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) is a non-profit project (the ORCID community is comprised of scholars and academic publishers) that is designed to "provide a registry of unique researcher identifiers and a transparent method of linking research activities and outputs to these identifiers." Basically, it is a DOI or ISBN for a scholar!  Once you set up an ORCID account, you will have a unique number/URL to your scholarship.  Setting up an account and adding your citations is easy. Here are the steps:

1. Set up an account in ORCID. 

 

2. Add your publications. 

Option 1: Import your citations from your Google Scholar Profile using BibTex. Here's a video showing you how:

 

Option 2: Use CrossRef to try to find most of your citations. Use the Search & Link option under Add Works and choose CrossRef.

 

Option 3: Manually add your citations.

3. Add your ORCID (make sure you use the entire URL. Example: http://orcid.org/0000-0002-1825-0097) to your website, your C.V., etc.
