Researcher profiles

Producing quality publications is no longer enough! - Scholars now need to use digital means to promote themselves and their work to the scholarly and wider community - An effective way to do this is to create online researcher profiles so that other scholars, scientists, students, and practitioners can quickly and easily find your academic content, your profile, institution, and professional activities.

  • Google Scholar
    An essential researcher profile for all subject areas, but especially for Arts, Humanities, Education, Law and Business scholars - Check who is citing your publications, and get citation counts, your H-index and i-10 index for academic promotions or grant applications. Make your profile public, so that it appears in Google Scholar search results.
  • ResearchGATE
    The world's largest professional network for scientists and researchers, with 1.2 million users.
  • Scopus Author ID
    If you have publications in Scopus you have a Scopus Author ID! Do an author search on your name to locate your profile. If you have more than one ID, contact Scopus (or a Researcher Services Librarian) to have your accounts merged
  • Microsoft Academic
    MS Academic allows you to manage your academic profile and how you're represented in it's Academic Knowledge graph. Follow authors, institutions, journals, conferences and topics to create your own personalised research feed
  • COS Scholar Universe
    Provides authoritative information about more than 1 million scholars and organizations around the world, together with verified affiliation and publication information


  • ImpactStory
    Aggregates altmetrics: diverse impacts from your articles, datasets, blog posts, and more

Evaluating research impact

Bibliometrics is an increasingly important way to measure and assess the research impact of individual scholars, research groups, and academic institutions.

SciVal (Elsevier) and InCites (Clarivate Analytics, formerly ThomsonReuters) are tools that provide bibliometric data gathered from the Scopus and Web of Science databases respectively.

Apart from providing data at the individual, group or institution level, they also allow you to benchmark researchers with researchers, research groups with groups, and institutions with institutions.

SciVal provides the following outputs for the last 4-5 years based on records in Scopus:

 - Scholarly output

- Citation count

- Citations per publication

- H-index

- Cited Publications

- Field-weighted Citation Impact

- Outputs in top citation percentiles

-Publications in top journal percentiles (using CiteScore, SNIP or SJR)

- Metrics on National & International collaboration & Academic-Corporate collaboration
