This guide provides information about how to create, use and promote your online research presence.


ResearcherID logo

ResearcherID is the author identification tool provided by Clarivate Analytics (formerly Thomson Reuters).

ResearcherID information integrates with EndNote and Web of Science (see below).

ResearcherID enables you to track citations to your research outputs that are indexed in Web of Science.

How are ResearcherID profiles created?

ResearcherID profiles are created manually. There are two stages in creating a ResearcherID profile:

Firstly, register with ResearcherID:

  • Click on the blue "Join Now It's Free" button and follow the prompts. If you already have an EndNote Online or Web of Science account, use the same password.
  • Enter your profile information. You can edit this information to keep it current.

Secondly, load your publications:

  • Search for your publications in Web of Science > select publications that are yours > click on the dropdown list with the default label "Save to EndNote online" > select "Save to ResearcherID - I wrote these" > click on the "Send" button.


  • Import your publications from an EndNote Web library: login to ResearcherID > click on "Add to: My Publications" > follow prompts to login to EndNote Web > go to the "My References" page > select the references to be added to ResearcherID.

Publications that are not indexed in Web of Science can be loaded from an EndNote Library or manually to your ResearcherID profile, but citation metrics won't be tracked for these records.

To keep your ResearcherID profile up-to-date, create a saved search alert in Web of Science (from the 'My Tools' function). Alerts will be emailed to you when your new publications have been indexed.
