Researcher profiles & ORCiD

Researcher profiles and identities can be used to promote you and your research to the community:

  • making you and your research discoverable
  • publishing a list of your research outputs
  • avoid misidentification
  • find and be found by potential collaborators
  • create opportunities for citation of your published work

ORCiD provides a persistent digital identity that allows researchers and authors to identify their work from those of others with the same name. It is also widely used by publishers and research funding bodies such as the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) and Australian Research Council (ARC).

Other established identities and profiles include:

  • Google Scholar
  • Scopus Author ID
  • ResearcherID (Web of Science)

ASN (Academic Social Networks) such as and ResearchGate may also be used to share ideas, research and collaborate with fellow researchers.
