Creating and Managing Your Academic Profile - Academic IDs


The growth of social media and networked technologies has allowed for new and interactive ways for scholars to circulate their research, expand their scholarly networks, and track their research impact. Understanding how your academic identity and your research outputs (articles, books, patents, conference proceedings, posters, data contributions, videos, blog posts, etc.) are tracked and showcased is a necessary step in framing your online identity.

Publishing under variations of your name, having a common name, changing your name, changing institutions - all of these can lead to your work being incorrectly associated with another author, or you can end up with several author profiles.

Part 2 of Creating and Managing Your Academic Profile will focus on creating your author ID, a unique number assigned to disambiguates names and credit research outputs, grants and funding, and additional scholarly information to the appropriate person.

In this session, you will:

  • Understand the importance of Persistent Identifiers (PIDs) in academia, with a focus on Author IDs
  • Understand the connection between Author IDs and publications and funding agencies
  • Learn about a variety of Author IDs
  • Examine the tool ORCID

You will leave with the following:

  • An ORCID ID and beginning of a profile page
