ResearcherID is a Clarivate Analytics (formerly Thomson Reuters) product to uniquely identify researchers and associate them with their published works.
When you register, you are assigned a unique ID and a profile that you should add your publications to via the Web of Science database (also a Clarivate Analytics product). This will enable you to see citation metrics for publications added to your ResearcherID account.
It is important that you only ever have one ResearcherID so if you are unsure if you already have one search for yourself in ResearcherID before creating one.
Always add your (available) publications to your ResearcherID publication list via Web of Science.
This will provide you with a variety of citation metrics including your h-index, career citation count (in Web of Science), citations per paper and collaboration metrics.
To add publications from Web of Science:
You can also populate your account with publications via Endnote or a RIS file.
Note that publications added to your ResearcherID in this way will not display metrics nor will they export to UQ eSpace when linked.
IMPORTANT: ResearcherID automatically update with new publications, so you will need to add publications as they are published to keep your ResearcherID publication list up-to-date.
