Creating and Maintaining Your Research Publications Profile

There are a variety of ways researchers may display a record of publications.

University joint appointment staff may have their publications recorded in university library research repositories. ORCID, My NCBI Bibliographies and Google Scholar Citations are independent of institutional affiliations and allow researchers to cumulate a complete publications record and make them visible for all to see.

Example of Barry Marshall's UWA Research Repository record.

At a minimum, authors should acquire an ORCID as major publishers now require them to assist with name disambiguation. Data from ORCID if publicaly available will flow to other sources such as the National Library of Australia's Trove. See the example of Barry Marshall's Trove record.

ORCID is publisher-independent. Other identifiers include ResearcherID from Clarivate Analytics and Scopus Author Profile from Elsevier.

It can be a challenge to keep all sources synced but if your ORCID records are maintained, records can be pushed / pulled between other identifiers.

UWA Library guidance on managing your researcher profile.

Google Scholar

"Google Scholar Citations provide a simple way for authors to keep track of citations to their articles. You can check who is citing your publications, graph citations over time, and compute several citation metrics. You can also make your profile public, so that it may appear in Google Scholar results when people search for your name."   eg see the User profile for Barry Marshall  

My NCBI My Bibliography [National Library of Medicine]

"My Bibliography is a reference tool that helps you save your citations from PubMed or, if not found there, to manually upload a citations file or to enter citation information using My Bibliography templates. My Bibliography provides a centralized place where citations are easily accessed, exported as a file, and made public to share with others."
